Parent Coach International

We believe Parents Create Innovation in their families, and then ultimately for our entire society.

With the small and the big decisions parents make as they love and guide their children, moms and dads not only mold minds, they also shape our collective future. As parents work hard to bring out the best in their children, they inspire others to do the same. In the thick of it, when exhausted and feeling utterly depleted, loving, determined parents are actually transforming society (though, of course, they aren’t thinking about that at the time!).

At PCI we’re all about a positive, strength-based approach. We implement the science of positive psychology in every coaching session, helping parents discover untapped strengths and resources in themselves and in their children.

Positive Discipline Association
