Every parent wants to see their child succeed, when it comes to coaching for children, the best person for the job is almost always the parents (Baras, 2019). A large part of parenting is supporting children to reach their potential, uncover what their passions and goals might be, and help them work towards different avenues of success in ways that are meaningful. However, there is always an emotional attachment to one’s child and therefore sometimes a parent cannot provide the objectivity that a life coach can.

Effective coaching can also help young children begin to develop some of the personal skills that will aid them as they navigate the journey of their lives. Some of these include:


Overcoming failure

Confidence in going after what they want

Creative problem-solving

An open and curious approach to new challenges and ideas

Collaboration and sharing

There is a fine line between coaching and parenting, both roles are interdependent. Due to this, there is a lot of interaction with parents when coaching minors to support both parent and child.

Life coaching can provide numerous benefits for parents, whether they’re navigating day-to-day childrearing, dealing with specific challenges, or seeking to improve their family relationships. Here are some potential benefits of life coaching for parents:

  1. Improved Communication: A life coach can help parents to improve their communication skills, leading to healthier, more open dialogues with their children and other family members.
  2. Effective Parenting Strategies: Life coaching can provide parents with tools and strategies to manage their children’s behavior effectively and positively, promoting harmonious family relationships.
  3. Stress Management: Parenting can often be stressful. A life coach can provide techniques for managing stress and maintaining emotional balance, which can positively impact the entire family dynamic.
  4. Improved Work-Life Balance: Many parents struggle with balancing the demands of their job with their family responsibilities. A life coach can assist in finding a workable balance, reducing stress, and improving quality of life.
  5. Enhanced Confidence in Parenting: Life coaching can help parents feel more confident in their parenting skills. This can lead to improved self-esteem and overall satisfaction in their role as parents.
  6. Goal Setting and Future Planning: A life coach can help parents set and achieve goals for their family’s future. This could include financial planning, educational goals for children, or even personal goals for parents themselves.
  7. Improved Relationships: Life coaching can provide strategies to improve relationships not only with children but also with partners or co-parents. This can result in a healthier and more fulfilling family life.
  8. Increased Patience and Understanding: Life coaches can help parents develop increased patience and understanding towards their children’s behavior and emotions, which can lead to more effective parenting.
  9. Emotional Intelligence: Life coaching can help parents enhance their emotional intelligence, enabling them to better understand and manage their own emotions, as well as to empathize with the feelings of their children.
  10. Personal Growth and Self-Care: Finally, life coaching can foster personal growth, encouraging parents to prioritize self-care and personal development alongside their parenting responsibilities.

All these benefits can contribute to more positive and healthy family relationships and a more satisfying parenting experience.


What People Are Saying

I was going through post partum depression and the major part of it is that I wasn’t being able to bond with my baby when I came to see Shruti. She was able to guide me on how to bond with her and it worked wonders. One thing I liked about her is that she would go out of her way to check up on me either through texts or a phone call & she would extended her time for me if I hadn’t finished talking, she never cut me off.I would definitely go back.
