What is a Parent Coach and How Can They Help?
Thinking about hiring a parent coach? You’re not alone. In our information age, parents across the globe are seeking out parenting coaches who can help them apply the information they’ve learned from books, classes, blogs, and videos to their own lives, within their own unique situations.
Improving behavior is no longer about using fear and punishment to gain compliance. Parents today are determined more than ever to peacefully parent through respectful relationships that mutually honor everyone involved, leaning on clear boundaries & natural consequences instead of punishment.
A 2007 case study of three parent coaching projects developed by the Parent Coaching Institute found that participants at each site reported significantly improved parenting skills as a result of the professional mentoring.
Similarly, in a 2001 analysis of the impact of coaching on four parents with “non-compliant children,” early childhood education researchers found progress among the entire group.
At The Family Alchemists, we’re parent coaches who focus on helping others achieve the same transformation we’ve achieved in our families.
Let us work our alchemy on your household relationships.
Kids learn through what we do, not what we say.
I think every parent wonders if they’re getting it right. At some point, whether it’s in the middle of a very loud tantrum, or during the 3 AM wake-up, they search for parenting help.
Parenting books, parenting blogs, and even parenting classes can’t look at a parent’s family dynamic and help them to find the missing pieces. That’s where a parenting coach or mentor comes in.
A parenting coach is a professional who is trained in child development, interpersonal skills, psychology, self-care, and more. Their focus isn’t on discovering something wrong with the child, rather it’s on supporting the parent to be able to identify what the child needs from them.
Since child behavior is always a child’s best attempt at getting their needs met, the most important parenting skill is learning to be so attuned to their child that they can decipher what they need at any given moment.
It could be a clear limit, a gentle hug, emotion coaching, a snack, sleep, pain relief, and more.
Rather than move into reaction, the parent is tasked with staying present and connected to their child so they can support them while they face the many challenges of growing up.
Conscious parenting coaches & mentors such as The Family Alchemists are gentle, loving, and non-judgmental professionals that work one-on-one with parents to help them clear any emotional blocks that are preventing them from staying fully present, such as being triggered by crying and reliving trauma from their own childhoods.
Once any generational patterns are identified, the parent can understand their own feelings and needs and how to meet them, so they have the energy to care for, and meet the demands of raising, their family.
Their mentor will then help them understand their children’s stages of development, what to expect, and how to foster better communication and connection, depending on their age.
Our parenting coaches work with parents remotely via phone or video conferencing, which allows you to fit coaching into your busy schedule and make it more convenient than visiting an office or weekly class.
Imagine, individualized parenting support just for you and your family, available day or night from the comfort of your home: that’s parent coaching.

Who’s Parent Coaching For?
Lots of families, from all stages, hire a parenting coach or mentor.
Some of the common issues they’re struggling with are:
- Special Needs
- Tantrums & Crying
- Sibling Rivalry/Fighting
- “Strong-Willed” Children
- Undesired or Disruptive Behavior
- Not Listening
- Discipline and Setting Boundaries
- Challenges with School or Homework
- Teens Engaging in Risky Behavior
Coaching is the fastest way to improve behavior.
As one of the architects of Conscious Parenting, Dr. Shefali Tsabary has written three books on the subject. She’s also created several courses that guide parents through the deep inner work that arises in the parenting journey. Our coaches are often her most passionate students.
“A Conscious Parenting Coach is someone that has been extensively trained in child development, psychology, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence. As a Conscious Parenting Coach, my focus is the relationship, either between the parent and the child or between both parents. Because our children’s behavior is their best attempt at getting a need met, undesired behavior from the child most often points to a parent who, for some reason, isn’t able to tune in to the child’s needs.
My job as a Conscious Parenting Coach is to identify what is blocking the parent from tuning in, and guide them to resolve it so they can fully connect with their child. The theory behind Conscious Parenting is that we all have at least one child that will “trigger” us, meaning they awaken some unresolved emotional pain from our own childhoods and that, by healing those pieces of us as they arise, we can actually use the relationship with our child for personal growth.”
What You Get:
- Parent Coaches will listen as you share, ask you questions, and empathize deeply with what you’re experiencing.
- Coaches primarily help you uncover your own answers and feeling of relief. Coaching is very experiential. You may do work on the level of emotions, which releases energy from your nervous system. You also may be led through meditations or other mindfulness exercises.
- Parenting Mentors are more like a parenting partner. They’re an expert in their specialties and will give you tactical guidance to resolve problems.
Both Parenting Coaches and Mentors from The Family Alchemists use their own transformation as their framework. They’ll give you the right guidance at the right time.
How You Get It:
You can connect with your Parent Coach in a variety of ways!
- Facebook Groups
- Text or Messenger
- Phone Calls
- Video Conferencing
- Online Courses
- In-Person Sessions
- Intensive Retreats
Each coach will choose what works best for their framework and will discuss those options with you.
Coaching live sessions generally run 30-60 minutes in length.
Cost for coaching ranges anywhere from around $60-$300/month.
While insurance doesn’t cover coaching, coaches are always ready to work with their clients to create packages, payment plans, schedules, and even sliding scale rates that work for them.
Your whole family will benefit from parent coaching, but you’ll feel like a whole new person!
Here are some of the ways you might benefit from having a parenting coach!
You’ll become a…
Anxiety and feeling not good enough will become a thing of the past. You’ll learn how to mind your mind so thoughts don’t run rampant and you can discern truth from conditioning.
You’ll stress less when things are out of control, and even join into the fun! You’ll feel more at ease going with the flow and learn how to use play to get your kids engaged.
Meltdowns, tantrums, and big emotions will start to feel like a fun playground to teach your kids all about the wonderful world of emotions and how they are the body’s GPS to steer us toward the best choices!
People pleaser? Bend over backwards for everyone and feel like no one listens to you? Learn how to set boundaries, trust yourself, and feel free to be yourself! Feel empowered as you become surrounded by people that love and care for the authentic you.
Get angry easily? Do you run out of patience by the end of the night (or by 9AM?), you’re not alone! Your parenting coach can help you learn how to set boundaries so you can fit in self-care — even if it feels like there’s no time for it! You’ll go from chaos to calm.
