The Powerful Benefits of Parent Coaching

Parent coaching in Santa RosaWhat do you do when your teen is being disrespectful, walking all over your rules and pretending to not even care?

You could easily send her to counseling and all your friends would understand. However, that may not be the best course of action.

I want to share with you a truth that I genuinely believe. One of the best ways to change your teenager’s behavior is by changing your behavior.

In fact, you may want to consider talking to a parent coach.

You might be wondering what parent coaching actually involves. Is it different than therapy? Is the professional going to talk down to you and tell you how much you are screwing up?

No, nothing like that. In fact, it can be incredibly supportive and empowering. It is all about focusing on your strengths, helping you be the best version of yourself and realizing what is actually possible.

Of course, there will be negative patterns to shift and maybe some shameful things to share. However, this is not about looking back into your history and figuring out what is wrong with you. It is more about identifying your values and helping you live up to your own ideals.

A parent coach is an ally, a confidant & a trusted guide. A powerful witness. Someone who can point you in the direction that you want to go and help you take the steps necessary to reach your goals.

If you are willing to consider it, I would love to share just a few of the possible benefits of parent coaching.

  1. Learn to understand your teenager from a different perspective
  2. Learn to communicate your thoughts and feelings more effectively
  3. Learn to apply effective discipline that really works
  4. Learn to disarm defiance and stop conflict before it starts
  5. Learn to bring back fun, laughter and enjoyment to your family

There is so much more that you can gain by participating in parent coaching. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Not only that, I’ll tell you a little secret. Your teenager will be happy that you are talking to someone. They already think you are the one that really needs the help! 🙂

If you can learn to become more self-aware and manage your behavior, you can seriously change the negative patterns in your family.
