Parent as Coach Message: Teenagers can build lives of confidence, courage and compassion - when adults respect, nurture and acknowledge them in a one-on-one connection. Every adult can enjoy “the teen years” and help their teen build a happy and meaningful life – when they view their young people as whole, good and wonderful and put aside the negative assumptions that often accompany the word “teenager.”
Parent as Coach Goal: To create positive, powerful partnerships between adults and teenagers, which allows all concerned to form lasting and enduring bonds of mutual love and respect. To transform parent-teen relationships of struggle, fear, silence and frustration into satisfying lives filled with joy, peace, deeper connections and real communication.
What is Parent as Coach? Parent as Coach is a proven and practical model for improving and transforming the relationship we have with the teens in our lives. The parent-coach model helps us as adults to examine our own core beliefs and respect the emerging beliefs of our “emerging adults.” Instead of teaching how to manage and control teens, Parent as Coach helps us appreciate the unique perspective of our teens and to express respect, understanding and support for who they are right now. A parent-coach does not dictate how to grow up; instead, guides a young person to their own solutions, inherent gifts, and the path to a meaningful and purposeful life.
Who is Parent as Coach For? Parent as Coach is for everyday adults everywhere who find parenting a teen challenging at best, impossible at worst. Relationships between adults and young people can be rewarding, fun, endearing, and energizing.
Why was Parent as Coach created? Out of necessity for one parent. Parent as Coach founder Diana Haskins discovered that previous ways of parenting were woefully inadequate as her child matured into a teen. This everyday parent, trained as a Personal Effective Coach, found that what worked best in the relationship with teen were the skills and processes she used as a professional coach. Coming from the passion of desperately wanting to help her teen and other young people grow into happy and productive adults, this everyday parent developed Parent as Coach for herself and for those who care for teenagers everywhere.
What Difference Will Parent as Coach Make? Parent as Coach changes our global perspective from “Teenagers – Oh No!” to “Teenagers – How Cool!”. From the parent-coach viewpoint, the parent-teen relationship moves from conflict and opposition to encouragement and support. The end result is that our children are raised to fill their “adult shoes” with the skills and maturity necessary to live as functional and responsible members of society.From the Author:
Teens need what we can give in order to grow into confident, courageous, compassionate adults. There is no time to wait; we must not lose this one-time opportunity to nourish and lead them. Learn to love your teen’s passage from childhood to adulthood by becoming a parent-coach.
