HELP! I Need a Parenting Coach

Linda McDougall-Leenstra will come into your home by phone or video call and give you an action plan to bring the order and calm you desire. No matter how chaotic things feel right now, you will see improvement after the very first call. Whether you schedule one coaching call or multiple sessions, Linda can help you fix the most frustrating parenting struggles…:

  • Morning routines – Kids that drag their feet and struggle to get out the door on time.
  • Bedtime and Sleep issues – Is it a battle to get your child into bed and have them stay there all night long?
  • Back Talk – A common problem sweeping our nation, but you don’t have to tolerate it!
  • Not Listening – Are you constantly repeating and reminding?
  • Power Struggles – Why is everything a battle?
  • “Sibling Rivalry” – Are you a referee in your own home?
  • Entitlement Epidemic – Do your kids feel a sense of entitlement?
  • Tantrums – From toddler’s to teens…learn to tame the tantrums from an expert in behavior.
  • Whining – Wean them off the whining for good…and so much more.
  • Disability diagnosis’, IEP, and school issues – They don’t see in school what you see at home?
  • Linda is a trained Special Educator with years of experience working with behavior difficulties

“I saw improvements after my first session with Linda. It was great a breath of fresh air to know that I’m not doing everything wrong, that my son isn’t ‘bad’ and that it took just a few small changes I could make that would have such a huge impact.”

Linda is a knowledgeable and experienced parenting coach and teacher, and we gladly recommend her to all the parents we can!” – Karen Welcome
