What is Parent Coaching?

Parent Coaching can help you deal with all aspects of being a parent by helping you identify your core values, your family vision and work toward specific goals by helping you develop a plan.  Coaching is about helping you recognize and gather the tools needed to raise and educate children to the best of your ability.  Central to the philosophy of parent coaching is the belief that the potential to be an effective parent is already inside you.  Parenting is a very big job that few are truly prepared for.  When you need help,  a parent coach meets you right where you are and helps you move forward.  

What is Consulting for Parents?

Olive Orchard Lab offers consulting as a way to provide additional information, resources, and experiences to parents.  Consulting is often provided in the group setting by way of workshops and trainings that target key areas of development.  However, individuals can also request private consulting sessions based on specific family/child needs.
