Parents Reading to Laughing Boy

Most of us did not receive adequate parenting advice (and suggestions of how to be a good parent) coming out of school. When the baby came along, we soon discovered that parenting does not come naturally.

Parenting coaching from a qualified counsellor is beneficial for parents to:

  • create strategies for handling day-to-day behaviours
  • find solutions for exceptional/rare behavioural occurrences that provide challenges to daily living
  • alleviate problems down the road
  • manage and overcome current challenges with: anxiety, sadness, grief, and other family issues.

Additional resources such as 1,2,3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 and 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, may also provide support in parenting.
