One challenge in parenting is finding the time to make a change. Between school, sports, music, homework, making dinner, or working full-time, the patience, time and energy required to address specific issues with your child can be minimal, postponed or nonexistent. As issues arise on a daily basis, the need for ongoing parenting support should not be overlooked.

As a result of this, eleven years ago Julie Freedman Smith and Gail Bell started offering individual coaching for parents and caregivers in a format convenient for busy households – over the telephone. It’s been a proven method of success for Parenting Power by nature of its convenience and flexibility.
