Getting Started With Parent Coaching – Get Your Family Back On Track!
For those not familiar with the term “Parent Coaching” you might be at a loss at what it actually is. A parent coach is, simply, a trained professional who helps you cultivate a better relationship with your child. A parent coach offers advice and support through a variety of venues, including in-person, over the phone, or over the internet.
We all work hard as parents and sometimes we need a little help learning to work smarter by utilizing parenting strategies that address common issues, routines, and problem behaviors.
The family is complex, and there are no cookie-cutter answers to your specific and unique issues. With the help of a professional parent coach, we can find targeted solutions that apply to you and your family’s individual situation.
How Does Parent Coaching Help Parents?
Many of us work long hours, spend time volunteering, or spend time catering to the needs of friend, family, and colleagues. Oftentimes, it is all the above. Now, life asks us to commit to being a parent. This is tough work and it is easy to adopt a reactive mentality. In fact, it is difficult to approach parenting any other way.
Parent Coaching teaches you how to proactively solve problems when it comes to behavior in your children. By understanding the roots of inappropriate behavior, we can treat the cause and not just the symptoms, ensuring quality, lifelong habits moving forward.
We strive to offer the ideas and tools needed to give you more control and the satisfaction of seeing your children transition into models of healthy behavior.
How Does Parent Coaching Help The Children?
Parent Coaching creates a community centered around your child. It allows parents to have a support system outside of their normal circle. Parents don’t feel as isolated or alone when facing troubles.
Most importantly, Parent Coaching deals with modeling appropriate parent behavior. This helps parents who struggle with how to talk, play, and set boundaries. Parent Coaching models appropriate ways to interact with children.
Therefore, children are receiving better communication, better play, and stronger and clearer boundaries when learning behaviors. This results in a stronger parent-child connection where the child feels more secure in themselves because mother and father are able to respond to their needs more confidently.
Why Should You Choose Parent Coaching Rather Than Therapy Or The Like?
Coaching is not counseling or therapy. Whereas counseling and therapy traditionally examine past events, coaching is dynamic and forward-looking. Coaching is proactive versus reactive.
Coaching is centered on the relationship between parent and child. Counseling traditionally treats the child as a client and often ignores the dynamic of the parent-child relationship.
Coaching is private and done either in-home, over the phone, or via the internet. This ensures a comfort level not found in the sterile, office settings of outdated counseling and therapy practices.
It is difficult to put a price on the relationship between us and our children. But, let’s face it, the price will always be a factor in nearly all facets of our lives. When it comes to the differences between coaching and counseling, it is hard not to recognize the value of coaching from a cost perspective.
If you approach a traditional counselor or therapist, you can expect to pay a minimum of $120 an hour or more! This is hard to swallow, especially considering that counselors often deal with past behavior and will not (or cannot) offer a goal-oriented program with an end in sight.
Complimentary Child Development Assessment
How can you determine whether or not parent coaching is right for you and your children? The easiest way is to participate in our free child development assessment.
Sometimes your child’s behavior could be situational and attributed to temporary factors, such as maturity level, hormones, school, friends, etc. But, sometimes your child’s behavior could be attributed to more serious factors.
Conditions such as autism, Asperger’s syndrome, hyperactivity disorders, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities (such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, or dysgraphia) or even the pleasant possibility that your child is gifted and talented, can result in behavioral issues that need to be addressed.
Instead of bringing them to customary doctors and therapists and navigating the likely avenues of medication, our complimentary child development assessment can pinpoint specific issues that can be targeted in a variety of ways. By using parent coaching, we can often avoid the pharmaceutical route by focusing on the root cause of changing behaviors.
