What is Parent Coaching?
A parent coach is a certified professional who helps parents navigate through a variety of parenting challenges in effort to help foster positive relationships with their children. This collaborative process can help identify the root of specific behavior challenges, as well as strategies to help parents reduce stress, end common parenting battles and find more joy and satisfaction in being a parent. Yeah, for real. I love my job.
Have you asked yourself these questions?
What does it take to get my kid to just clean up?
Why do they do this all the time?
How can I get them to stop doing that? NOW!
You liked peanut butter yesterday, why not now?
Why does everything have to be a battle?d
Are you listening to me? Why don't you listen to me?
How do I get my spouse on the same page as me?
When will this get better?
Get Support You Need
Big emotions happen to us all. Tantrums and power-struggles can quickly escalate into all out power wars using the old tools of typical parenting. Punishments, time-outs, spankings, shame and blame give us instant victories but with long term costs. Working with a parent coach helps you learn new tools that help you feel empowered and proud to handle these painful moments with a clear plan that is built on the foundation of understanding human behavior, emotional intelligence and the latest research in neuroscience.
I work by teaching and coaching my clients new ways to approach this painful situations that result in:
- quicker calm downs
- increased confidence (you and your child)
- increased family connection
- long term strong, resilient, HAPPY children!
There is No Single "Right Answer"
It can be so confusing when you're just trying to do the "right way" to be a "good parent". It's often hard, challenging, more confusing and frustrating working through what the best way is.
A wonderful thing about being a parent, though, is how resilient children are to just about anything. Meaning there is no "right way" to do it, only your way. Families are just as unique as fingerprints, meaning no two families are the same, and that is true for children. What may work for one child/family, is totally opposite of what can work for another child/family- and in that idea, lays the most difficult challenge of being a parent, figuring out which way is best for you.
· What if there was a way to educate yourself, and your family, about different strategies and techniques that could possible work?
· What if those strategies and techniques are tailored to your specific needs as a family unit?
· What if there are techniques you could learn that would allow you to first connect with your child before redirecting them?
Crazy , you say? Not for me. This is just what I do! If you're looking for a new approach and fresh perspective to help you overcome your parenting challenges, let’s chat- TODAY!
Coaching is about finding what feels right to you and your family. It is a forward thinking approach to creating specific and measurable goals and developing an action plan on how to meet those goals together, with a lot of support and accountability. That's why working with a coach delivers more impactful results than just reading a book (or a million) on your own.
I love my job! I get to see people succeed each and every day, working towards what truly makes them feel happy at home.
Working to create a kind, positive, firm but fair, system that works for you, and your family.
