PARENT COACHING

Parenting is an essential component in creating a stable and healthy environment for your children’s overall psychological development and physical growth. Due to the complexity of 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 congruency between parents or one experiences exhaustion, it can become confusing for the children to operate at their best.

Parent Coaching can provide you with strategic solutions to everyday parenting problems that entail a step-by-step action plan to implement in the home. Throughout the coaching relationship, you and your coach will identify current problems, stressors, and challenges the family faces. 

After identifying what needs to be modified, your coach will provide tools and techniques to incorporate in the home for yourself and with your children.  

BENEFITS OF PARENT COACHING:

  • REDUCE POWER STRUGGLES BETWEEN PARENT AND CHILD

    • Power struggles begin when the child’s needs are not being met, therefore they react emotionally to try and get their needs met. When this occurs, a parent needs to seek to learn and understand their child to help them act and communicate appropriately. If a parent reacts the same way a child reacts, then it will be challenging to undo the power struggle. By using our 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

    • Parenting can throw you for a loop, especially being a new 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 STABILITY AND STRUCTURE

    • When everyone in the home has a structure to follow, it makes everyone feel more safe and secure. 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, a coach 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 what they did wrong and coming up with a solution will teach them problem-solving skills. Being consistent with disciplining along with setting boundaries within a parent/child relationship is essential in a healthy household.

  • ESTABLISH SHORT-TERM AND LONG-TERM GOALS TO INSTILL POSITIVITY IN THE HOME

    • 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.

  • INCORPORATE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE CHOICES

    • Implementing holistic and balanced lifestyle choices are important for a child's psychological development. Establish healthy nutritional options for lunches and dinners, extracurricular activities to do as a family, and physical activities for maintaining healthy development and educational improvement.  

  • NAVIGATE CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT YEARS

    • Children will experience growth spurts over the years as they transition from childhood to adolescent. Being able to support and encourage growth will come with challenges when dealing with their self-esteem, attention-seeking behaviors, peer pressure, gender identity, and body image issues. Providing you with guidance and support on how to navigate these parental challenges gives you solutions to encourage your children's overall growth. 

  • IMPROVE YOUR CONNECTION WITH ONE-ON-ONE ENGAGEMENT 

    • Develop​ strategies and activities that develop a deeper bond between you and your child to cultivate a healthy relationship. Being a healthy role model for your child will transform their personal relationships with friends, peers, and teachers/coaches.
