What parents are saying:
We have already recommended coaching to others because it is a great resource for empowering parents with skills that are not innate. Taking an hour a week to just focus on the process of being parents was extremely beneficial to us. Mary’s empathy and humor combined with her willingness to share personal experiences make her a very effective parent coach.
Jennifer and Mike, parents to be
I'm Mary Upham, a PCI Certified Parent Coach®. My mission is to support parents in creating a more joyful family life, to help them appreciate the beauty and wonder in everyday life with kids, to encourage them to create deep and lasting bonds with their children, and to share information on how to give kids an optimal start.
Do you wish you had someone to ask for guidance that would "get" your family system? Do you sometimes yell at your kids and then regret it? Are you trying to be a good parent but feeling overwhelmed? Would you like to parent differently than your own parents but don't have a good role model?
Parenting in our society today is no easy task, but parent coaching offers support, encouragement, and new possibilities for daily life that can make it so much better. Be the parent you dream of being!
