PARENTING COACHING & WORKSHOP 

Connect with Your Child & Teens through Emotion Coaching 

Are you struggling with your child's emotional outbursts

and teen's disrespectful behaviour?

 

Is your child/teen having behavioural issues

and unable to focus in school?

 

You are so frustrated and

wondering why the carrot and the stick method is not working.

 

Emotion Coaching parenting is about helping you to Connect and Empathise with your child first before teaching and guiding. With the bond, they will be more willing to share with you their feelings and issues and you could guide them through problem solving.

Based on the book by Dr. John Gottman "Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child", we will use the principles and methods from Dr. Gottman to help you connect with your child to resolve conflicts without escalating your own emotions.

Book a 1-1 Customised Coaching or Workshop

You'll learn :

  • How to respond to your child's emotions (especially negative ones),

  • How to use emotions for bonding and teachable moments,

  • How to regulate emotions and set clear, consistent limits in problem-solving.

Research shows

When Parents are Emotion Coach, the child/teen

  • Had higher scores

  • Fewer infectious diseases

  • Could better focus their attention

  • Better at motivating themselves

  • Better at delaying gratification 

  • Coped better with life’s ups and downs

  • Required less discipline

  • Had healthier peer relationship

  • Could self-regulate and soothe/calm their emotions more quickly.
