How do I know I need a Parenting Coach?
- Do you find yourself having questions like: “We just had a transition or will have an upcoming one (new school / move / new addition to the family / separation / divorce), how can I help prepare for or best help my child/ren adjust?"
- Do you find yourself having self-reflecting thoughts that sound like: “I wish I had someone to talk to about my son/daughter’s physical aggression/rule-breaking…”
- Do you find yourself noticing some unwanted behaviors and having future worries such as: “My child’s tantrums/whining/power struggles is somewhat manageable now, but I really hope he/she doesn’t keep up this behavior in the future."
If you answered YES to asking yourself any of these questions, contact me for a complimentary Exploration Session to discover how I can best support you.
"I’ve been working with Stephanie Owen for well over 6 months. As a recently divorced father of two, I wanted to be sure I wasn’t messing up my kids. Stephanie's belief in a positive disciplineapproach aligns with the values I try to instill in my children. Her empathetic listening and reassuring manner have helped me retain and grow confidence in my parenting abilities.
From strategies for saying no, to remain firm, kind, and less permissive, to tools that encourage rather than discourage, Stephanie offers regular reminders to stay curious, build connection and grow mutual respect between you and your children.
Stephanie has helped me to become far less frustrated by the inevitable and routine challenges, and has reminded me that leadership isn’t just for work. Many people go to family members when looking for advice when raising their kids. That’s appropriate, but can’t beat having an objective, unbiased, outside objective.
Every good parent questions his or her abilities from time to time. If you find you’re frequently unsure of the answers, do yourself, and more importantly, your children a favor, and contact Stephanie Owen."
