Parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world and yet as parents we are not given any manuals and guidelines when we bring our baby home from the hospital. There are neither classes nor schools for parents to attend or graduate from.
Parenting is certainly no sport for the weak. The games are packed with obstacles and challenges that you may not be familiar with. Just like in sports, from badminton to swimming, you wouldn’t dream of excelling without a coach. Parent coaching like all other coaching helps by letting you see your potential when you are feeling lost and hopeless. A coach helps by seeing the desired results, plan with you the steps towards your success and patiently reminding you of those steps.
Many of my clients have engaged me for help because they simply want someone who can walk with them shoulder to shoulder in their struggles with their parenting journey. Sometimes just getting someone from the outside looking in is all you need to create a new perspective and to help you see things from a different angle altogether. I always remind my clients that they are the expert of their own family. We simply co-create the future together. Think of parenting coach as a trusted family member with the top-notch know-how.
Being a parent myself, I know how big and scary this role of a lifetime can be. We all just want to get it right. But everyone’s “right” is different. I believe there is no one right way of doing things. Otherwise our parents’ approach of bringing us up would have been passed down from generation after generation. Parenting is about change and growth – ours and our children’s. There is no easy and simple formula. It’s about knowledge, flexibility, teachability and hard work. If that’s how you see it too, then parenting coaching may be right for you.
