Parenting & Co-parenting Coaching

FAMILIES EXPERIENCE STRUGGLES AND HARDSHIPS, TOO

Whether you are a single mom raising a child or a couple with 10 kids, all families need help sometimes. Families are typically a mix of two different cultures (the parents) trying to pass on the best that they have to their children. But cultures clash, opinions differ, outsiders comment, children are all different. This is stressful! A relatively small thing can escalate into WW3 and you can’t recall why! Let us give you the tools to get back on track and stay on track.

PARENTING COACHING & SUPPORT

Parenthood is a journey and you are learning just as much as your kids are. You may feel lost at times, unsure how to effectively communicate with and discipline your child. You might lose your temper, yell at your children or find yourself worrying whether or not you’re providing your children everything they need to thrive.

Parenting Coaching offers you an opportunity to grow as a person so you can be a better parent. Through one-on-one sessions, as a couple and in family settings, we’ll work to identify your unique strengths and apply them to core parenting skills you can use to be more engaged, relaxed and balanced at home.

PARENTING FOR EVERY FAMILY

Whether you’re a blended family, single parent are fostering or are considering adoption, Parenting Coaching can help you grow. At Self Care Impact Counseling, we believe in applying a positive mindset to parent coaching that helps you focus on what you can do right rather than what you may be doing wrong.

A functional family is rooted in compassion and communication. Working closely together, we will help you address many of the
most common parenting struggles such as:

Aggression and temper tantrums
Correcting children’s behavior
Constant whining
Kids not listening
Back talk
Parenting anxiety and stress
Getting on the same parenting page

HOW THERAPY MAKES YOU A BETTER PARENT

Kids change everything, and sometimes, you may long for the freedom you had before you became a parent. It’s natural to feel guilt when this thought arises, but you are not alone. Many people struggle to adjust to parenthood. Just know that these desires are a normal response and it has nothing to do with how much you love your children.

You may feel like you’ve lost touch with who you are now that you’re so consumed by the role of a mother or father.  We can help you rediscover yourself and apply that unique identity to your parenting style.

The more authentic you are, the closer you can become with your children.

PRACTICAL PARENTING STRATEGIES THAT ACTUALLY WORK

You know your family better than anyone; rather than telling you the right way to parent, we will collaborate to discuss proven strategies that work best for you and your children. It’s important for parents to find common ground with their children; rather than being too permissive or too controlling, we can help you develop a healthy family dynamic that incorporates respect, love and intimacy.
