Parent and Family Coaching
Parent coaching is a therapeutic intervention that can help parents become more effective in their parenting skills. Effective parenting requires a large number of tools that change with the age of the child. Parenting is the one job in life for which one has no specific training and often the ‘tool-belt’ parents develop gets rusty and out-dated!
Parent coaching can help you adapt your home environment and/or gain parenting tools and skills. Seeking input from a coach who is able to evaluate your parenting approach and make specific suggestions for change can have important positive effects on your sense of efficacy as a parent, significantly impact your child’s behavior and positively impact the parent-child interaction. Depending on the age of your child, a family approach may be taken with your child actively involved in the therapeutic process.
