What is parent coaching?

Parent coaching is supporting parents in their job of taking care of their children. A coach is someone who can reassure parents that they are doing the right thing, give suggestions and ideas based on expert's research while understanding that all families and children are different and unique. A parent coach isn’t that much different from a sports coach. A professional athlete may know just about everything that there is to know about their sport, but they still benefit enormously from having a coach. A coach can give them a different perspective, offer encouragement, change routine as well as push them to the next level. A parent coach does just that, but in the realm of parenting and parent-child relationships.

The earliest years are the most important years for shaping a child’s life; grab onto this opportunity!

Is your child fussing up a storm right now because you told her that she can’t have the one thing that she wants?  That sounds about right. And as parents, we need to set limits so we keep telling her no. And that just makes her fuss more so we want to give in so […]

Most parents are wondering what to do when their child is having a tantrum, or what to do when they are hitting.   But a lot of parenting challenges can be resolved when everyone is calm. Sometimes we don’t take advantage of this time because we might forget. But even more often, we don’t want […]
