You don’t have to be a perfect parent. Just be a real one!

Parent Coaching

My teen isn’t listening to me anymore

He has become so much more difficult over the past year

My partner and I are divorcing and we can’t seem to agree on how to co-parent

I’m concerned that my teenager seems more distant and I can’t connect with her anymore

She has been missing curfew, cursing at me, and doing poorly in school.

My teen is asking me for more privileges, but i’m not sure he is ready

If you can relate to any of these statements, then you might benefit from parent coaching!

Parenting skills coaching is a chance for you to understand your teen better.  It’s not only for the first time parent of a pre-teen or teenager, but also for those veteran parents who are trying to get used to an evolving world filled with social media, cyber communication, changing rules, and new potential risks.   All of this will inevitably impact your relationship with your child, and my goal is to help support you and arm you with resources to help you be more effective.

It’s time to stop pulling your hair out, decrease the arguments, find more patience, and have a better relationship with your teen.  Together, we will get a good handle on what is going on with your adolescent, and I will provide you with tips, strategies, and skills to help you feel more effective.  Ultimately, these coaching sessions are focused on providing parents with support, improving relationships between caregivers and teenagers, and learning how to support and encourage your adolescent through what can be a challenging time for both of you.
