Parent Coaching 

Parent coaching is a short-term intervention that provides parents and other caregivers with hands-on, here-and-now tools for bringing about rapid and dramatic improvement in their child's behavior.

Why use parent coaching? 

At EF Specialists, we understand the power of parent coaching and use the best practices from a range of disciplines to in supporting you toward reaching your goals. Through a combination of solution-focused questioning, the cultivation of resource-based thinking and reverse engineering, we will help you chart a pathway to ideal destination, while practicing the skills and habits necessary to remain successful when you arrive. 

Parent coaching is a customized-to-your-family opportunity to understand your child's behavior and learn what to do to help it improve dramatically. You'll learn the EF Specialists methodology to parenting with the support of a coach who will not pass judgment on you but will stand by you as you gain new skills.

It all starts with the miracle question: if we were to be chatting in three to six months, what would have happened for you to feel like hiring us what the best investment in your life? This simple, but profound question, will help you uncover your goals for the parent coaching process and identify the key steps you need to take on a daily, weekly and monthly basis to move toward your vision of parenting success. 

Our approach to helping you is rooted in the truth that children are people too, and deserve to be treated as such. Respectful parenting is about unconditionally loving our children and parenting in ways that make them feel respected, supported, loved, heard and valued as individuals. These may include learning how to:  

  • Boost Your Child's Self-Esteem

  • Catch Your Kids Being Good

  • Set Limits and Be Consistent With Your Discipline

  • Make Time for Your Kids

  • Be a Good Role Model

  • Make Communication a Priority

  • Be Flexible and Willing to Adjust Your Parenting Style

  • And more! 

Parent coaching is a collaborative process that focuses on your fulfillment, balance and process, while always keeping you and your child's well-being at the forefront of the coaching relationship. We look forward to helping you begin the journey.  

"It was liberating for me as a parent to let go, and let Sean (with his superior skill set and coaching abilities), take over. I highly recommend Sean and his team to help with any learning challenge and help create academic and overall success in your child’s life."
