You’re not alone!
Living with and loving our kids during adolescence can be tough.
So it’s good to know that our Coaching Approach course will make it easier.
There’s a lot of focus on supporting our kids in their early years, and rightly so as they really are their formative years….yet adolescence is an equally crucial time in terms of development and it’s often at this stage we (parents & carers) are left to get on with it.
And it’s tough!! Even when we’re blessed with ‘good kids’, just living together and managing competing priorities presents its’ challenges.
Adolescence is a long stage of life starting at around age 8 and ending between 25 & 30 years old.
And during this stage you’ll be loving a human who’ll likely:
- look at you like you have horns in your head (and/or have absolutely no intelligence…it’s beautiful combo, right?)
- stay in their rooms more
- want to spend more time with friends (on & offline) than you
- have mood swings that have no rhyme nor reason
- stay up late
- sleep in
- forget the most basic of things
- have little sense of the consequences of their actions.
While you’ll likely:
- feel REALLY bored by the sound of your own voice
- feel fed up being called a nag!
- miss the closeness you used to have
- be worried about the choices they’re making
- feel a bit alone at times
We get it, it’s really tough! You might have thought you’d got this parenting malarkey cracked and then all of a sudden the game has changed
And while there’s no fairy godmother who can magic our kids past this stage (sorry!), it doesn’t have to be AS tough.
We created the Coaching Approach for Parents series because we found the core skills from our coach training have been invaluable to us as parents & carers. In our own professional practice we’ve worked with many parents & young people and have seen the amazing impact pressing pause and getting curious can make to the quality of our relationships.
And that’s what we want fro you too, so we’re bringing CaP to you as an opportunity for you is here to press pause too and reflect on how you’d like to move forward to enhance the relationships you have with your kids.
We’ll be exploring our themes of:
CURIOSITY, CONNECTION, RESILIENCE & the TEENAGE BRAIN.
This is not a parenting course, you don’t need that as you’ve been a parent for a while now!
Instead it’s a course to up levels your communication skills and enhances your awareness of what’s going on for you and your child throughout their adolescence.
The skills and knowledge you learn will benefit your family and also other relationships in your personal and professional life.
We deliver this course in a number of schools as part of their family learning and parental engagement strategy, with great reviews however a number of parents have been unable to attend due to timings. Equally, some parents said they felt self conscious being open in front of other parents who knew them, hence us not bringing these course directly to you so YOU get to choose how to access this support.
You can choose to access the workshops online over 6 evenings so you don’t have to organise childcare and/or you don’t have to travel and have more privacy.
And you can also access the workshops in person at our Glasgow office over 2 days 9.30am – 2.30pm.
What’s included in the price?
- Workshops lead by highly experienced coaches where you’ll gain some great insights into coaching & human development.
- Access to a private facebook group to ask questions between sessions and after the course has completed.
- A downloadable playbook full of resources.
- Sessions are recorded and will be emailed to you with relevant resources.
How have other participants benefitted?
‘This was the best course I’ve been on by far…and I’ve been on quite a few’
1 parent reconnected with their son and now go on ‘dinner dates’ to nurture their relationship while juggling busy lives.
Another parent feels less stressed by their child’s behaviour, has let go of ‘nagging’ so much after gaining insight into how our brains work and found a more effective way of communicating that works for them all.
And another parent who’s child can be non verbal found a creative way of staying connected and in touch with what’s happening in his life, letting go of ‘asking 20 questions’ and getting nowhere.
The Coaching Approach (for parents & carers) course is for everyone who has an adolescent in their lives.
Don’t wait until you’ve got a challenge (although it’s ok if you’re already there!), press pause and get curious.
Have better conversations.
After you sign up we’ll send you an email with all the information you need to join the calls, a link to join the FB group and your playbook.
See you on the inside!!
