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.

It happens, our children are driving us up the wall and to be totally honest, we don’t want to be around them. We don’t want to hear their voices. (We don’t really like them) and it feels horrible. We react differently when we feel this way and we want to get out of this cycle […]

Over the summer, I was struggling with trying to figure out how to carry a bag and ride my bike to the swimming pool a couple of blocks away. It got to be so bad that a couple of times, I just ran in my flip flops because I couldn’t manage three towels, snacks, water […]
