I'm not talking about super nanny in case you're wondering.
As a parent I know that raising a child is challenging, even more so this day in age. Every parent has been there, sometimes you don't really know what to do. Sometimes our kids seem to get the best of us.
If parent coaching can help me answer some questions, if it can help me deal with the challenges and overcome obstacles, I want know more.
The truth is there is no one answer that will solve every problem, face it and move on.
But how would having the support of a parent coach, to help you be a better parent sound to you?
The thought of things spiraling out of control is a constant in every parent's life, chaos is just part of the fun stuff. Being able to look at things from a different perspective and taking back control of your life for many a parent, is a really, really long shot.
What are your goals as a parent? How are other parents dealing with their parenthood? What are the things a parent coach can help you with?
By listening attentively, a parent coach can help you discover strengths that you may be unaware of, asking powerful questions so that you can implement new behaviors and strategies in your life as a parent.
Parent coaching provides a trust-filled space so that you can learn to respond rather than react to the ever challenging circumstances you're faced with as a parent.
Lasting and meaningful solutions can only come from understanding yourself, a lot of the effort and attention is placed on developing and building trust in yourself.
When you have a strong foundation to support you and you become conscious of your parenting style you can find solutions that are right for your circumstances and values.
Some of the stuff you hear may be hard to digest at first, being asked to work on yourself only may seem to add to your woes, but think of it this way, if doing the work gets you any closer to achieving harmony as a parent, what would you rather have?
This is not to say that coaching works in every circumstance, although you can always seek support from a parent coach there are some situations that need to be handled by therapy and counseling.
A trained coach will likely refer you to a professional in one of these areas if he or she considers it necessary.
By digging deep and focusing on what you can do now and how you can respond to all too common situations, parent coaching can help you tackle most trying experiences.
If everything else has failed, coaching can give you a new and needed perspective.
