Parenting Skills to Create a Strong Foundation for your Children

Parenting is a huge responsibility and when your children are young is the time to establish a strong foundation. But there may be confusion and competition between parents or differing expectations and parenting styles. Create common goals and facilitate open communication so there will be cooperation not competition.

Do you want your children to listen and be respectful? Do you want to enjoy them but right now it is just frustrating? You may find yourself yelling and then regretting it. Learn to be a firm yet loving parent and have a parenting plan that is thought out and gets results. Create a plan that will bring loving structure and discipline into your home. This strong foundation will give your child a feeling of love and security as well as an understanding of respect and responsibility.

WHAT YOU WILL GET FROM ME

Parenting Young Children

Family can be your greatest joy but this does not happen without effort. Children challenge us and how we respond is the key to the behaviors they will learn. You and your partner may have differing expectations and parenting styles and you’re working in competition instead of cooperation. Young children are looking to you for guidance, learn how to respond with care and strength to give them a secure, loving foundation.

  • Learn to set clear boundaries in a loving way to bring enjoyment back to your home. 
  • Identify the root of troubling behaviors and put in place specific steps to address them. 
  • Implement structure in your home, establish clear expectations, promote consistency and resolve conflict. 
  • Reduce tension and frustration. 
  • Create common goals and generate solutions together
  •  Cooperate together as a team

HOW IN-HOME COACHING WILL BENEFIT YOU

In-home coaching is a powerful process that has changed thousands of individuals and families for the better. We understand that reaching out for help can feel overwhelming and vulnerable. This process is uniquely tailored for each family and we are sensitive to your specific needs. 

Scheduling a session can be challenging logistically as we have such busy schedules. This is one reason in-home coaching may be the best option for your family. We go to you and meet in your homeThis saves you time. But perhaps more importantly, meeting in the safety of your own home is more comfortable allowing you to open up more quickly and get the help you are looking for to meet your goals more efficiently. Our sessions are 90 minutes rather than the traditional 50 minutes, giving everyone time to share.

The intentions of coaching and therapy are different.  The coaching process is action based and focuses mostly on the present and future instead of only on the past.  A Certified Coach helps you identify your goal (a closer family, less tension and anxiety, better communication) and what specific steps need to be taken to make that happen.  It’s about results and bringing real change.

What People say about me

“Lisa has been a Godsend to our family! We have three small children, one of whom is particularly challenging. She quickly pinpointed the dynamics of the family and helped us to see behaviors and ways in which we were communicating that needed a shift, yet we were too close too see. We had a lot of work ahead of us and it was overwhelming, but she was able to break it down into a manageable plan and get things turned around starting right after our first session.”
