I had heard about Tina Feigal’s book The Pocket Coach for Parents from a friend. Much of what I read really struck a chord with me. Still, I found myself really struggling with my intense 4-year-old. While I really wanted help, I wasn’t sure how much more I could learn from someone whose book I’d already read.
Skyping with Tina is the best investment I have ever made. Though we’d never met in person, by the middle of our first Skype session, it felt like we had known each other for years. Our sessions gave my husband and me a shared platform with which to work together on parenting. Working with Tina has actually brought us together as partners in parenting. It was so encouraging to receive immediate feedback that not only helped us better understand our son’s behavior but that offered very specific suggestions for how to respond to these challenging situations. I cannot say enough about how invaluable those four parent coaching sessions were for me.I am a much more confident parent … and am more understanding of my son’s intense temperament and what makes him “tick.” My son will always be an intense person, but we now know how to live without all the screaming, anger, and emotional upheaval that have for so long ruled our days.
