Society has training for everything.
Except for being a parent.
Parenting can be one of the most fulfilling experiences of life, growing in ways never imagined and learning to love beyond comprehension. But parenting can also be difficult, overwhelming and even scary at times.
Parent coaching helps parents of all stages determine strategies to address parenting concerns while leveraging what is already working well in their family situation.
It can help you rediscover who you are as a parent, build confidence and esteem, and gain clarity to see what matters most to you and your family.
You will learn how to take positive action at the right time to create the family life experience you most want to live.
Maggie Denari is a former elementary and early childhood teacher, receiving her Parent Coaching certification from the Parent Coaching Institute affiliated with Seattle Pacific University. Maggie has a B.S. in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education from Butler University, and an M.A. in Elementary Education from Indiana University. Maggie and her husband, Tom, have two adult children and a grandchild.
A mother for over 30 years, parenting has been Maggie’s life’s work. She believes the keys to successful parenting depend on parents’ understanding of social, physical, emotional and brain development in their children. She encourages parents to identify their values and pass them on to their children, giving the family a solid foundation and a roadmap for the future. She believes that parents who communicate honestly, care for their children with warmth and love, discipline with compassion and empathy and enjoy being together with a common purpose are better able to navigate difficult times.
Maggie guides parents in addressing their parenting concerns with compassion and empathy both for themselves and their children.
