What is a Parent Coach?

A parent coach deals with the present and seeks to educate parents providing the tools and skills needed to parent their children within their specific situation and environment. Parent coaching does not diagnose. Instead, using the most current research, parent coaching guides parents towards building a more healthy, positive relationship with their children.

All types of parents with all types of children crossing many cultures and environments use parent coaches.  Some parents may have read many books and articles and have tried many techniques, with little success.  Parents who seek parent coach guidance are looking to learn techniques from an experienced, professional coach who can provide successful strategies and a personalized approach.
