In the latest of related tragedies, a Los Angeles family court ordered Britney Spears to undergo eight hours of training with a parent coach to develop strong parenting techniques. The sensational court order recognized the field of parent coaching as a place for both parents and children to find shelter in the storm of life from issues tearing apart families across America.
To aid in her ongoing struggles to straighten out her life, the Academy for Coaching Parents recently issued an advice list for Spears and the many parents like her who are fighting to raise their children in a difficult atmosphere.
ÂThere is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing parents lost in their efforts to raise their children. Both the parents and the children suffer. When you add the additional strain of a divorce, the struggles multiply,Â noted Dr. Caron B. Goode, director of the Academy for Coaching Parents International (http://www.academyforcoachingparents.com). ÂWith the pressure of being a high-profile, public figure, the time Britney shares with her parent coach learning to bring stability and foster growth in her children will strengthen her bond with them.Â
On the surface, said Goode, the media coverage of Spears may not seem to represent the problems average parents face in everyday life -- but in actuality, it does.
ÂIn fact, the media coverage of Britney Spears only makes issues like pressure, stress, divorce, alcohol, and drugs -- the problems that threaten the efforts of all parents to raise healthy, adjusted children -- more evident to those around her,Â Goode said. ÂThrough seeking the guidance of a parent coach and following the advice tips from the Academy for Coaching Parents International (ACPI), someone such as Britney Spears will get closer to the goal of providing a stable environment that nurtures growth in children.Â
Goode believes that the Los Angeles court order of Britney Spears to spend time learning to be a better parent with a certified parent coach speaks volumes regarding the acceptance of the field of parent coaching, and highlights the need for more parental education.
ÂBecause we advise so many people everyday on the most beneficial way to raise healthy, happy children, we wanted to reach out to Britney and all parents who can identify with the issues she is facing with advice,Â said Dr. Goode. ÂThe long-term benefits of parent coaching through ACPI are felt, as both parents and children find stronger sources of structure, insight, and inspiration.Â
