The Parenting Challenge

Parenting is a challenge at its best, but at the same time it could be one of the most fulfilling actions you will ever participate in.  Unfortunately, very few of us have all the skills and training required to succeed in raising kids with a focused purpose in life, the ability to make the right decisions on their own and with enough resilience to weather the challenges life could throw at them.

A different approach

The difference in CHILD-WISE PARENTING is the “Coaching” approach.  This is a hands-on guidance based upon the latest research to being an effective, able parent that can ‘grow’ your child into adulthood with the assurance that they will be able to live with significance and have a meaningful impact on everyone around them.

The program facilitators (coaches) work hand in hand with parents towards a better understanding of the development process of kids and principles of parenting to maximize the potential of our children. Together we explore and develop tools and techniques to equip and develop our children with purpose and resilience.
