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.
