Share Article

Tina Feigal of the Center for the Challenging Child, LLC, is pleased to announce the launch of a new website, for professionals interested in becoming certified parenting coaches, using Present Moment Parenting™, as developed by Feigal.

New website offers mental health professionals, social workers, and educators complete information on how to obtain training and certification as a parenting coach.

Parent coaching is one of the fastest growing areas of the already-booming field of personal coaching. Today's parents desire more of an "action plan" as opposed to exploring their "issues." (ICF Global Coaching 2009) Given this emerging trend, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is expecting the overall coaching industry to grow 18 percent through 2018. (Occupational Outlook Handbook 2010)

The new website offers mental health professionals, social workers, and educators complete information on how to obtain training and certification as a parenting coach.

The Center trains parenting coaches to profoundly affect generations of parents. Parents who struggle with challenging child behavior benefit from Present Moment Parenting(tm) ( coaching in a way that therapy for the child often cannot help. Instead of weekly appointments in a child therapist's office, parent coaching weaves the healing into everyday life, using the established relationship with parents or guardians who already know and love the child, and have the most invested in his or her success. With proven tools based on the physiological effects of communication on the child's heart and brain, rather than "more discipline, more yelling, and harsher punishment," parents are able to bring their children around in a matter of weeks. Parents of children with ADHD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Delays, Attachment Disorder, and giftedness can finally find answers that work. Children of all ages can discover their strengths instead of being constantly confronted with their weaknesses.

From certified parent coach Erin Jauert:

"Through every class meeting, required reading and group discussion, my horizons have been broadened, my beliefs have been challenged, and I have been enriched. I feel so much more capable as a parent and am as excited as ever to begin sharing this knowledge and these experiences with other parents who are eager to learn."

The Center specializes in teaching parenting coaches how to help parents understand their child's behavior and learn what to do, which is what parents desperately want.

Parenting coach and trainer Tina Feigal offers 8-week classes on a regularly scheduled basis via teleconference, which allows anyone with a four-year degree in a child-related field worldwide to take the training.
