Parent Coaching

by Jean Landphair, LMFT

No one has a family expecting to feel frustrated and overwhelmed, seeing their kids being out-of-control. My husband and I have raised two children, so I know it can be hard raising great kids (and we all want great kids). Unfortunately, few of us get good training on how to be an effective parent.

Children of all ages long for a close connection with their parents, but many things can get in the way of that need being met. I work with parents to help them strengthen their bond with their children while setting reasonable rules and enforcing them consistently. Research shows that this balance between rules and relationship generally brings the best outcome for children.

Family life can be difficult but also holds the promise of great rewards. If you would like help to improve as a parent, give me a call at 615-861-9122.
