I have a track record of success with my students, and, I love to give parents the tools necessary to get the same positive results from their kids.
What is Parent Coaching?
There is no doubt that parenting is hard, and as with all hard things, it can be easy to slip into bad habits. Once bad habits take root, it can be very difficult to change direction.
Parent Coaching can help.
Through this work, I hold parents accountable as they identify and change the habits that no longer serve or support their family.
Some of the ways that I do this include:
- Supporting and guiding parents as they identify and articulate their desired outcomes
- Encouraging parents specify their values and to reflect upon their parenting practices in light of their goals and values
- Increasing parents’ awareness about their own thoughts and behaviors while also exploring more productive options for parents to model for their students
- Offering parents consultation and helping them to brainstorm options when they aren’t sure what to do next
Approach & Process
Kids emulate their parents and whether they admit it to you or not, you are always setting an example for them. That’s a lot of pressure, and none of us are perfect.
It’s a powerful thing to model self-improvement and personal growth for your children, especially if you are expecting it from them. Parent Coaching gives parents that opportunity to take responsibility for their own behaviors by addressing some of the aspects of home life that may seem unrelated but that inevitably affect their children.
In my role as a parent coach, I serve as an expert sounding-board offering feedback, direction, and accountability. These conversations are directed by parents and are a direct reflection of their own goals and values. Every solution is tailor-made to fit the family.
Positive outcomes with students are not reliant upon parental collaboration, but it certainly does help.Through Parent Coaching, I have helped numerous parents cultivate a whole new way of being that has inspired their children and brought more joy and ease into their relationships and their lives.
“With Lindsay’s help, I have set personal goals, goals for O. and goals for our family, all of which have had a tremendously positive impact on our daily lives. I know that Lindsay will be an integral part of our home for years to come. I feel supported knowing that I can bounce off ideas or frustrations with Lindsay when it comes to raising a tween girl with ADHD. I couldn’t do this without her help!”
