Mindful Parenting Through the Everyday Stresses

In the fast paced world of parenting where decisions are made in between spilled cereal, constant questioning and smartphone apps, it is no wonder the word mindfulness is becoming as necessary in a parent’s vocabulary as the word nap-time. And yet, for many,...

What our children ask of us

Our children ask so little really. Listen to my discoveries and ideas. Look through my eyes to understand my world. Feel my love, joy, frustration, pain. Hold my hand, my heart and me close. Be careful with me and understand me. I may feel off sometimes, when the...

Parent Coaching: Raising Children Consciously

 

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.

 

Parenting Help - Finding Personalized Parenting Help with a Family Alchemist is Easier Than You Think 

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:

  • Sleep
  • 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.

“True spiritual mastery is found in the muck, not the mountaintop.”

 

Dr. Shefali Tsabary

 

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.

The Conscious Parent

The Awakened Family

Out of Control

Dr. Shefali on Teachable

“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!

  • Email
  • 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.
