Parent Coaching

Support for Parents and Caregivers

There may not be a manual for parenting but there is support and direction available to those who want to be better prepared, more informed, or are feeling lost and would like more direction. 

There are so many unique parenting scenarios: parent-to-be, new parent, parent to young children, parent to older children, blended family, co-parenting, grandparent raising grandchildren, military family, and so on. Each person's situation is different and to make it even harder, what works for one child may not work for another child. All of this can leave parents and caregivers feeling overwhelmed and at a loss for what to do. 

Maybe you are looking to better prepare yourself for parenting. Maybe you are feeling lost, need support and validation, or want ideas for becoming the parent you want to be. Maybe you seek to have an improved relationship with your child. Maybe you are looking for help with co-parenting or figuring out how to marry the different approaches you and your spouse have. Whatever the goal may be, parenting coaching can help. 

Parent Coaching

       Parent coaching allows you the opportunity to have one-on-one guidance regarding your parenting choices. Whether you are expecting, or already have a family, the coaching services can help empower you to be the parent that you want to be to your child(ren). 

What does parent coaching involve?

        Parent coaching is one-on-one guidance either in person or online. Most parents seek out coaching when they are facing a parenting struggle but parent coaching does not have to be focused on resolving an issue. In fact, parents often find parent coaching beneficial when they are preparing for a parenting event (welcoming a new baby, approaching a new stage of development, going through a transition, etc.) 

         Parent coaching is unique for each individual or couple. We will discuss your needs and goals and make the best plan for accomplishing them.

***Parent coaching is NOT therapy. While I will gather the information I need to best help you along your parenting journey this does not serve as therapy. Coaching sessions will, however, help you learn from your past experiences to empower you to become the parent you want to be!

Childhood Influences

Studies have shown that our past experiences influence the choices we make in our future. Our childhood experiences have the power to inform the choices we make when parenting our own children. We may choose to replicate the things we found meaningful or formative to us. We may also choose to do some things that we did not like differently when we have our own children.

There are also the unconscious actions that occur. For example you often hear people say "I opened my mouth and my mother came out!"

Adverse Childhood Experiences

Life is full of challenges and adversity, some face more than others. Growing up in a home where there is separation or divorce, mental illness, or substance abuse are some of the most common experiences that can have long term effects on a child.

Knowing how the experiences and adversity you faced as a child influence your parenting can be not only informative but also empowering. It allows you to let go of feelings of disappointment, shame, guilt, or anger and empowers you to make different choices for your family. Having that knowledge also gives you the opportunity to help your child cope with any adversities that they may face as they grow. 

Do you want to know how your past may influence your parenting style? Do you want to learn how to do things differently than how you were raised? Do you want to know how to marry the differences between you and your spouse's experiences to create a unique style that will work for your family? Schedule parent coaching and let's work together to make the best future for your children!
