What is Parent Coaching?

Parent Coaches are professionals with years of experience who listen with compassion.  Our Coaches help parents sort through conflicting advice and minimize information overload.  Coaches help parents find effective strategies and find the clarity that fits unique parenting journeys.

Many of us grew up with parenting approaches that don’t fit with the parenting challenges of today. With our own children, we want to find a better way to parent. We know that parenting situations are often emotionally charged; coaching can help a parent find calm in the chaos and stay focused on what is most important the parent-child relationship.

What is Parent Coaching?

Parent Coachings helps Parents:

  • Create age-appropriate, brain-based strategies which address the child’s unique challenges
  • Build parental strengths and draw on the parent’s inner wisdom.
  • Encourage self-care practices that can be woven into daily life.
  • Expand a parent’s self-awareness, confidence, and competence, with realist progress that leads to sustainable positive change.
  • Provide support so that more satisfaction, peace, and enjoyment is experienced.

Sometimes we all need help in different ways. This sounds as a surprise to anyone who knows me, but I don’t do everything on my own. I’m the best student in my generation, all A’s. But, even I am flawed. Of course, I don’t admit this to the professors, but all my friends know that I hire an essay writing company when I can’t write my essays on time. I order my papers right here and always meet all deadlines. It’s a real struggle when you have to study for an exam and write a paper at the same time. So try! Let it be our secret.

Ron has been trained in many different parent education curriculum including; Incredible Years Parenting Certification, Family Wellness Instructor Training, S.T.E.P. (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting) Trainer, Love and Logic Parenting Training, Work/Family Directions Facilitator/Corporate Coach.  He is also certified in many specialized clinical expertise including; “Love After Marriage” Couples Coaching and many more.
