A parent coach is a certified professional who helps you cultivate a better relationship with your children. Whether on the phone, in-person, or over Skype, a parent coach gives customized support and advice based on each individual family’s needs. Parenting is about defining how you need and want to parent. Parenting isn’t about finding the “right” way to parent. Each of our children require something different. A parent coach addresses issues such as problems with routines and transitions (morning and night, for example), chores, parental anger, discipline, homework challenges, “disrespectful” behavior, and peer struggles. A parent coach assists the parents in creating parenting plans and then supports the parents as they practice these plans. Children and families can be complex, and the parent coach helps the parents problem-solve as challenges arise. A parent coach is not a therapist.
