Parent coaches are professionals who listen with compassion to a parent’s concerns and address specific parenting struggles. Coaches help parents find effective strategies to find clarity with a parenting plan and supports the parents while they practice the plan. A parent coach gives customized support and advice based on each individual family’s needs. A parent coach is not a therapist.
