Lakeside Family Services offers a unique individual service to families wanting ongoing support and guidance with their parenting skills. Parent Coaching involves regular sessions with either one or both parents to discuss specific parenting challenges and provide support and feedback to parents about their parenting skills.
Learning new ways to communicate with our children, new approaches to discipline and boundary setting can be challenging and take some time. As parents we often fall into habits of parenting from our automatic responses rather than making clear choices about the kinds of relationships we want to have with our children.
Parent Coaching offers parents the understanding and support they need to make changes over time that reflect their own choices about the values, the behaviour and character development they want for their children.
This service is informed by an emotion focussed and attachment approach to parenting that teaches parents the skills to communicate effectively with children of any age and to foster an atmosphere of trust, love and respect in their families.
