When you have a step-by-step action plan implemented in both homes this allows for cohesion in parenting styles. Throughout the coaching relationship, you, your co-parent and your coach will identify current problems, stressors, and challenges the family faces.

 

BENEFITS OF CO-PARENT COACHING:

  • REDUCE POWER STRUGGLES BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR CO-PARENT 

    • Power struggles begin when you and your co-parent have different parenting styles or have unresolved emotional discord from the dissolution of the relationship. When this occurs, each parent needs to understand how their parental role and responsibility affect the well-being of their children. Working through parenting differences and finding solutions to unresolved emotions will you become a better parent and communicate appropriately with your co-parent. By using our communication tools and techniques, you will learn how to respond to end a power struggle very quickly with our proven parenting strategies.

  • RECEIVE SAGE ADVICE AND SUPPORT

    • Co-parenting can throw you for a loop, especially being a single parent. Knowing how to balance family and work life, and still meet your own personal needs can seem impossible some days. Our coaching will assist you in finding a workable schedule that allows you to do it all and achieve a sense of fulfillment each day.

  • CREATE STRUCTURE AND SAFETY

    • When children have a structure to follow, it makes everyone feel more safe and secure when going back and forth between two homes. If a structure is not in place, children can sense a lack of safety causing them to feel anxious and distressed. Throughout the coaching process, we will work with you to create a structure that provides consistency and safety for all. This will lead to an increase in school performance, learning self-care and self-love, and creating a teamwork mentality. Not only will it instill positive parenting, but it will also minimize chaos and improve calmness all while developing a deeper and meaningful connection with your children.

  • DEFINE AN APPROPRIATE DISCIPLINARY PLAN

    • Disciplining children doesn’t have to end in tears. Helping children understand their unacceptable behaviors and coming up with a solution will teach them problem-solving skills. Being consistent with disciplining along with setting healthy boundaries between you and your co-parent is essential throughout both households to support the best of interest of the children.

  • ESTABLISH SHORT-TERM AND LONG-TERM GOALS TO INSTILL POSITIVITY IN TWO HOMES

    • It’s never too early to begin setting goals with children during their late childhood and adolescent years. This helps children build independence, self-worth, and confidence as it teaches them to believe in themselves and value their ability to succeed. During our coaching sessions, we will talk about what goals are appropriate based on the child’s age and support their development.

  • IMPLEMENT EFFECTIVE AND CONSTRUCTIVE COMMUNICATION

    • When it comes to discipline, using positive communication skills is beneficial to teaching your child how to manage life challenges without emotionally reacting to their behavioral problems. By taking a negative situation and using positive communication skills, everyone can remain respectful of one another to achieve great results. As co-parents, it is important to communicate constructively in front of your children as they learn by watching you. It is crucial to minimize adult conversations such as finances, relationship problems, and personal matters in front of the children or around them as they need to enjoy their childhood as children. 

Co-Parenting is an essential component to creating stable and healthy environments for your children’s overall psychological development and physical growth within two households. Due to the complexity of co-parenting, parents may face challenges where they disagree on what’s best for their children or struggle to meet their children’s needs. When there is a lack of congruence between parenting styles, it can become confusing for the children to operate at their best.

Co-Parent Coaching can provide you with strategic solutions to everyday parenting problems.
