Parent Coaching & Consultation
mindful, intentional parenting today
specializing in parents of gifted & strong-willed children
You’ve heard of a sports coach or a business coach. In fact, the best athletes and most successful executives in the world have coaches. A coach helps their client to reach their highest potential; to realize their goals and create a plan to attain them.
What about someone to support and encourage you with the most important, demanding and sacred job you’ll ever have… through parent coaching?
Even the best parents fall short of the visions they have of themselves as an ideal parent. Do not underestimate the significant influence you have in shaping your children and thus determining the future of humanity. It is almost daunting, but with the right tools, knowledge, attitude and awareness, you CAN and WILL be empowered to intentionally achieve your ideal vision. 9 out of 10 parents are unaware of how their daily comments and actions deeply affect their children’s thoughts, beliefs and behavior, even the simplest interactions can sustain a profound difference. Whether your child has special needs, is strong-willed or seems to have behavioral problems and can be difficult to discipline, you were meant to be his/her parent and you CAN change the family dynamics and unhealthy patterns. Don’t waste precious years just muddling through, do something about it TODAY!
You may be a new parent with a baby and a loss of identity or a parent who is shocked by how much you can scream and shout at someone you love so, so much. Sometimes you may even feel as though you hate your child or want to surrender just to get a little peace! Guess what! You are not alone! Yet most parents are reluctant to admit some of their deepest thoughts, fears and anxieties. I can assure you, there are better ways. Your acknowledgment that there is room for improvement in your parenting shows that you are already a good parent and no doubt love your child(ren) with all of your heart… so what can Evie Estes, PCI Certified Parent Coach® of Parent 4R Future Parent Coaching do for you and your family?
