The program is designed to build a therapeutic relationship and support service to parents who desire to learn new parenting skills and positive attitudes that will help them cope with the many life challenges and events that are facing families today.
The “Preserving Parenthood” Family and Child Coaching Program is offered through Dr. Masoud Ahdieh’s office at 711 S. Long Drive in Rockingham. Parents can call 910-997-7180 to schedule an appointment.
Parents and children are seen together for individual, educational, and coaching sessions.
The program is focused on helping parents “preserve” and “restore” their role as parents. While helping children and families with solutions, parents without partners, single moms and dads, and joint co-parents, they will discover that parenting their children can be a fulfilling and rewarding life experience.
“It’s important for parents to be involved,” Dr. Ahdieh said. “The parent preservation program provides education for emotional and social support. The program improves parent and child relationships, emotion, physical and well-being.”
The program is helpful for children with attention/school performance problems, self esteem problems, grief, loss, divorce, separation, and behavior management challenges. Parents and grandparents are welcome to participate with their children.
Parents benefit from the program by:
Learning improved parenting skills
Bonding with your child
Increasing self awareness and accountability
Improving communication skills
Finding solutions to family challenges
Together, parents, children, and community can find greater joy in preserving the institution of parenting our children.
