What is Parent Coaching?
Parent coaching is a process of helping parents to effectively help their children. At EEC we take a team-based individualized approach to helping parents work thoughtfully and nonjudgmentally to improve strategies that help maximize their child’s growth in executive function skills, self-regulation skills, and problem-solving skills. Using evidence-based tools developed by Dan Siegel, Tina Payne Bryson, and Ross Green, EEC coaches take parents through a systematic process of improving their relationship and communication with their children.
So many of our clients think outside the box and do not fit the mold of the typical structure of education and learning. Whether this child is ADHD, twice-exceptional, dyslexic, or all of the above they can make parenting a much harder journey. They demand more from parents than a typical child. This is why parent coaching is so powerful.
Teaching parents how to connect with their child is a powerful first step in helping their child breakthrough any amygdala hijack cycles and start to develop a stronger neurological relationship with their frontal lobe. By approaching challenging situations and behaviors thoughtfully and deliberately parents can instantly start to engage their child in meaningful interactions that promote problem-solving and self-efficacy.
“The girls went from both screaming and crying, refusing to ever play with each other again to dancing and singing around the kitchen thanks to the new technique we talked about last session. Thank you!”– Mom
“I literally want to hug you… it is an amazing feeling to not live worrying every minute of everyday if I am setting my son’s life on a path of failure”– Mom
We believe that if a child could do better then they would do better. This is an important principle because it allows us to see our children not for who we think they are or for what we want them to be, but for where they are at that moment – socially, emotionally, and developmentally. This is a powerful shift in parenting because as we connect with our children and really understand and listen, we start to see their challenges more clearly. Our kids start to feel heard and understood and therefore can start to connect and engage in solutions that they were not able to access before.
Many parents will use parent coaching in collaboration with our one-to-one executive function coaching with their child. This holistic approach to developing skills allows an EEC coach to not only work with the parents but also the child. This holistic approach is the most effective way to create long-lasting change and promote systemic well-being and growth for generations to come.
