Why Parent Coaching?
Your kids usually don’t behave exactly like what’s described in books, videos or other resources. They have their unique personalities and individual variations. Parent coaching allows you to interact with an expert to get advice and learn new strategies in real time. It gives you an opportunity to implement suggestions and get immediate feedback, so that you get quicker results.
Why Parents Should Not Coach Their Kids
Coaching your kids often makes matters worse because you’re too invested in their lives to make a difference. Your kids may get defensive because they see your corrections as criticism. As a result, you don’t get the outcome you desire. You need someone with an objective outlook that can inspire them to take action. An outside coach will move them forward in ways that you can’t.
What Being A Pediatrician Taught Me & How That Benefits You
Parents had everyday needs and concerns that needed to be addressed and frequently turned to me for guidance. After advising countless number of families, I realized that parents with teens needed additional support in the area of communication. Their children faced a number of different challenges in today’s world. Adolescents were dealing with vaping, cyberbullying, social media, the threat of school shootings, and many other issues.
I found that addressing their needs took time and required coaching. Since this was a much needed service that extended beyond the traditional scope of my practice, I chose to focus my expertise on this area. This provides me with the opportunity to fully support parents and youth and make an impact on transforming their relationships.
When Is The Right Time To Hire A Parent Coach?
- If you are disconnected from your teenager
- If you have difficulty communicating with them
- If you are tired of fighting with your son or daughter over practically everything
- If parenting causes you to be frustrated, worried, confused, and drained
- If you do not know how to handle situations that arise in school and at home
- If you say to yourself things like, “Why don’t they listen? They’re out of control. Why don’t they talk to me?”
