The 5 Step coach approach to parenting workshop

Naperville Municipal Center – Lunch Room

7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Imagine being able to give directions and offer advice to your kids without triggering defensive reactions. Imagine your kids seeing you as a member of their team and seeking out your guidance and support.

Come learn and practice the 5 step Coach Approach that will help you become the parent you really want to be, and help you create the kind of relationship with your child that you've always wanted!

You want your kids to understand what makes them tick -- without getting defensive. You want them to become independent -- and actually believe in themselves! You want to help them truly feel capable of becoming successful adults.

When you begin to use the 5 step Coach Approach, your kids will learn self-management skills and take ownership of their lives. They'll begin to:

  • See the best in themselves, embracing their strengths and their talents
  • Find the motivation to focus on learning in both school and life
  • Become inspired to overcome obstacles, set goals, and reach for them
  • Dramatically improve relationships with family and peers
  • Become accountable, independent and responsible
