Parents hire a life coach? Isn't that their job?
People often confuse "life coaching for kids" and parenting.
Life skills coaching goes beyond the traditional parenting roles of moral and character development, how to treat others and how to behave. In fact, what children learn in these lessons, most adults haven’t learned! When a parent seeks help it doesn’t mean that they are an “ineffective parent”. Seeking help only means you have identified an issue that needs extra attention. In today's world it takes a village to raise a child.
Some children require more support for learning leadership and coping skills, building self-esteem, overcoming shyness, dealing with bullies, handling nerves, goal setting, experiencing disappointment, failures and embarrassment and so much more.
Life skills coaching is about mindset development and conditioning — it targets the root of the thought patterns that holds individuals back.

When their child is going through a big change, such as a move to a new school or divorcing parents
When they want to help their child be more successful in school or extracurricular activities.
When they see their child struggling with confidence, shyness, or anxiety - shying away from new things or new experiences.
When they want to give their child a jumpstart in developing self-leadership skills.
When they see their child making poor choices with peers regarding friendships and activities.
