Parenting Counseling

Parenting counseling helps to educate and train parents in successful ways to encourage yet still provide successful discipline to children and teens.  Parents are able to meet with counselors for individual or group sessions with other parents.

Parenting counseling is helpful because parenting children is a tremendous amount of effort and work. Parenting skills are not inborn and disciplining your child may seem overwhelming. Sometimes no amount of discipline seems to work and maybe you are at your wits end without knowing what to do. Maybe you feel out of control and want to give up on parenting? Parenting is quite difficult; yet no child should endure abuse or neglect.

Successful skills for both encouragement and discipline can be learned and practiced by all parents.  Parenting counseling can help with concrete ideas for successfully helping children and teens navigate the developmental years.
