A Parent-Coach is a steadfast guide and inspiring mentor to a child for life.

Every child is unique, with their own personality – and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to parenting.

In the Parent-Coach Dialogues, parents will learn how to take a targeted and intentional approach when parenting each unique child. Each session is led by a Family Coach, who will help parents explore their current parenting challenges, introduce innovative approaches and provide useful feedback to develop real solutions and actions to bring about lasting change in the way you parent!

Why the Parent-Coach Dialogues?

  • Engage with a Family Coach who can guide you in optimising your parenting style.
  • Establish new friendships with like-minded parents in a safe community setting.
  • Equip yourself with fresh perspectives and practical tools to strengthen your parent-child relationship.

 

IMPACT STORIES

I encourage all parents to make this investment [taking time] to attend this workshop. Because I believe as parents, it's a continual learning journey. As the child goes to school, parents also need to go to school to learn the right skill sets, the right methodology in order to become effective parents.

- Shu Wei (Mother of 2 boys, 6 year-old and 8 year-old)

Because it's a dialogue, we get to interact with other parents and hear from them - what are the things they do with their children, what challenges [they face], so at least it helps us feel that we're not alone. And we could pick up tips from other parents too, so that was good.

- Hannah (Mother of 2 boys, 5 year-old and 8 year-old)

In the week itself, we can apply [the tips] to our children, and we can observe their behaviours, and then we can come back and consult the trainer if things don't go according to how we expect. So, it's not just theoretical, there's also the practical aspect.

- Terrance (Father of 2 boys, 5 year-old and 8 year-old)

 

Core Dialogues

Dialogue 1

The Parent Species: Becoming the Parent You Want to Be

Every parent desires to be a great parent, and to raise a happy and successful child.

But our parenting journeys may begin differently - Some carry baggage from our own families, some are used to stern approaches, others struggle with discipline. Whichever stage of parenting you are at, we will help you identify your style, adjust parenting habits and grow to become a parent-coach. So think about it, what type of parent do you want to be?

In this session, we will help you to understand the type of parent you are and why, so that you can parent your child more effectively.


Dialogue 2

Every child is unique. Now that you know your parenting style, discover your child's personality type. Understand how they are wired so you can better parent them. Also, learn how you can set the foundations for your child to feel right, think right and act right.

Through this dialogue session, you will learn to recognise your child's strengths and weaknesses and get fresh perspectives on how to work with them, not against them.

In this session, you will discover simple yet effective ways to strengthen your relationship with your child, and create a positive home environment so they will flourish!
