Parent and Child Relationship
Parenting is a challenging job and we often hear parents tell us they lack confidence in how they manage some of the challenges
At TDCC we are committed to supporting parents to create a healthy family life for themselves and their children through our parent-child relationship support services. Parent-child relationship support is a valuable addition to our range of intervention services. When we work with parents they often understand the strategies that would be most supportive for their child. However, at times, parents find themselves struggling to apply the strategies amidst their busy family life. Parent coaching can help to bridge the gap between knowing and doing. Our Psychologists will work with you and your child to practice strategies known to enhance the relationship you share. This can lead to improved behavior, and empower you to apply an effective, consistent approach to parenting.
You are the most important person in your child’s life and it makes sense you need to feel confident as you apply the changes you want to see within your family. Parent coaching provides opportunities to practice using strategies we have discussed so you are capable of dealing with challenges that might arise along the way.
