ABOUT PARENT COACHING

Parent coaches assist families with any and all phases of parenting from preparing for parenthood to parenting teens/young adults. The coach’s role is to serve as a support and guide for the family. Parent coaching allows parents to discover their own parenting philosophy and uncover the answers to their own questions. This is accomplished using a method of strategic inquiry combined with active listening, customized action plans and unwavering support. In addition, we at Future Focused Parenting particularly strive to help our clients parent with purpose by equipping them to operate from a position of intention in all they do. We are passionate about helping families move from surviving to thriving and from floundering to flourishing!

COACHING PACKAGES

At Future Focused Parenting, we believe in the power of intentional parenting. This means we encourage families to parent from a strong “why” in order to continually operate from an intentional place. We also challenge parents to take the long view and be looking toward the future. This helps parents do what is best rather than what is easy or expedient. While our podcast, Raising Adults, offers great practical tools and strategies, we also offer private coaching for those families who want to work individually with Kira and/or Deana. Deana specializes in birth and early parenting, infant sleep, and blended families. Kira has expertise in raising emotionally intelligent children and offers wonderful strategies for planning while still expecting a baby. Future Focused Parenting offers multiple parent coaching packages. The details of these packages are below.

NOTE: For all packages, we take a deposit of $100 to hold your spot on our calendar, and the payment schedule varies depending on the package you select. Just have a quick question or need a tune-up after a coaching package? We are happy to do a la carte coaching sessions anytime for $125/hr.
