You Need a Parenting Coach


Say What?

Ed Miller, Biblical Parenting Coach
I know you're thinking, "I'm doing okay. I'm surviving as a parent?" That may be true, but don't you want to thrive? In order to do that, you most likely need to make some adjustments in your approach or strategy. Working with a coach will provide everything you need to make those adjustments. The most important thing you get is support and accountability. 

There are many obstacles to stepping out and dedicating 8 weeks to some pretty intensive training with a Biblical Parenting Coach. The transformation you'll see in your family will be so worth the time and the cost. 


I recently had my weekly phone call with a couple I'm coaching in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. With their vacation and my sudden and unexpected tragedy, we had to put the coaching on hold for a few weeks. We needed to catch up and then get back on track. They're into Week 3 of the 8 weeks of coaching now. It was wonderful to hear stories from their family and especially to hear about the progress they're making. 

This couple is very eager to learn to train the hearts of their children. They have 4 boys, 8, 6, 4, & 2. They're a bit overwhelmed and dealing with some disobedience and some anger. When coaching parents, we require that they focus on one child and one problem over the course of the entire 8 weeks. We want them to learn the strategy we've developed and then they'll be able to apply it to each unique challenge with any child. We focus on developing a character quality that will help the child deal with the presenting problem or challenge. We're working with the 8 year old boy who has trouble following instructions. We're working on "cooperation" or you could call it "responsiveness to authority." 

Last week, this couple introduced "The Break" to their child. He doesn't like going to a BREAK. Taking a break requires a child to examine their heart and to repent. He wants to blame someone else for his lack of obedience and not deal with his own failure. We brainstormed about ways that they could cast vision for the importance of self-reflection and repentance. They're watching this video where I have to take a break as an adult.

Our goal with our children is for them to become fully devoted and faithful followers of Christ. This is our primary mission as parents. "Taking a Break" is an adult skill that every person should be ready to use when they need to reflect and repent. The primary responsibility for discipling our children falls on the parents. It's our job to coach and train them up in the way that they should go. The church provides some support, but it's our job as parents to serve as master life coaches for our kids. This requires a lot of time, energy, patience and wisdom. To do this effectively, we also need a coach and mentor to assist, encourage and exhort us.

  1. Dealing with a lot of anger and melt downs with my 4 year old. This is something we really need to think about.

    1. Let me know if you have any questions. I suggest you read this article to help guide you in dealing with your 4-year old. I'm dealing with a 12 year old in this article, but it works for a 4-year old as well. http://www.biblicalparenting.info/2017/06/parent-heart-part-6.html

  2. Finances is the biggest obstacle, but outside of that pride is another.

    2. JO ANN, If you can deal with the pride issue, we can help you with the financial issue. I'm training these coaches and I need some clients to work with each of them. If you'd like to go through the coaching program for free then send me an email at scott@biblicalparenting.org and include your email address, name, age of the child and a bit about your situation. It's a lot of work but major changes can take place.

  3. I would love this but my husband's work schedule right now makes it difficult. I suppose there's also some pride too. We have an almost 12 w/o son.

    1. Hi Pam! It does take about 30 minutes each week to watch the videos along with meetings and practice sessions. The good thing is that you can do it anytime you want. If you work with a personal coach, you meet with them on the phone at your convenience. If you're doing the Online Support Group, you write about your progress and get feedback in our Online Forum. Let us know if you want to have a FREE Consultation to ask further questions. ed@biblicalparenting.org

    2. Hi Pam! You won the contest!! You get to work with me as your coach for 8 weeks starting whenever you want. I noted that you have an almost 12 yo son. That's my strong suit. You'll want to think about the timing. It's pretty hard word and you'll want to find 8 weeks when you can give this a lot of attention. Email me at ed@biblicalparenting.org to discuss this further.

    1. I'm so sorry to hear that Denice. Dr. Turansky has a lot of experience dealing with adopted children and their challenges. You might actually want to consider hiring him as your personal coach. He's the very best. Contact him at scott@biblicalparenting.org

  5. Family coach is a very helpful and interesting idea. Like a psychologist. Thank you for the aticle :)

    1. Hi Olga! It's actually pretty different from a psychologist. A psychologist is a doctor and they'll give you ideas and analysis, but they won't walk alongside of you and support you like a coach will do.
