Are you a parent who is thinking:
Why am I struggling?
I want to stop nagging.
Why am I so frustrated?
How can I stop feeling so tired?
How can I get along with my children?
How can I teach my children to be responsible?
How do I discipline my children in loving manner?
I want to stop yelling but I don't know what else to do.
What is Coaching?
When you hire a coach, you hire someone who works in partnership with you to help you achieve the life you want. A coach helps to clarify what you need in order to move forward with confidence. A coach is not a counselor or a therapist. Coaches help clients to come up with realistic solutions to specific problems.
What is a Parenting Coach?
A parenting coach works with parents, to help them to determine which values are really important. A pediatrician who is also a parenting coach incorporates knowledge of child development and behavior, as well as familiarity with communication skills, to help to improve relationships within the family. Many factors get in the way of us being effective, wise and loving parents. Sometimes, despite the internal awareness of loving our children, we behave in ways that do not display that love. Our anger might be out of control because of issues that are linked to our own childhood and actually have nothing to do with our children, yet too often the children become our target. We might be feeling unfulfilled in our significant relationships. We could be frustrated by unmet needs, an absent partner, or an uneven distribution of labor. Much as we feel grateful for our children, our partners, our families and friends, there is a sense that something is missing from our lives.
Why Choose a Parenting Coach?
A parenting coach can be the catalyst that brings people to the sudden discovery that they can change. There is awareness about new possibilities, which leads to further inquiry, a growing desire to transform, and a readiness to take action. When we are faced with major changes in our lives, many strong emotions come up. For some of us, these emotions include much fear, and the concern that we will no longer be in control in areas of our lives that once seemed familiar and secure. Yet changes can bring much excitement, creativity and optimism. Taking control of your life is the first step toward a peaceful future for yourself and your children. Peaceful parenting for a peaceful world is a choice that every parent can make.
