Academy for Parenting Education and Coaching
Welcome to APEC
Parent Coach Training
Everything you need to know about becoming an effective, profitable parenting coach.
Parenting Coach Certification Program
I believe that coaching is the most powerful force for change on Earth. Coaching keeps your clients focused, keeps them on track, keeps them challenged, and doesn’t let them off the hook or just fall back into their old ways. Coaching helps parents to create the life for their children that they long for.
Do people ask for your advice? Do you seem to have a knack for solving problems? Do you love the feeling of being able to make family life a little easier and even be the catalyst that changes the whole trajectory of the life of a child or family?
Do you want to make a positive difference in the world while creating an income that has unlimited potential, have flexible hours from the comforts of your own home (or the beach) and the freedom to do what you love?Then you are in the right place.
Why Become a Coach?
Parents are lonelier and more isolated than ever. With technology, living away from family and friends and life stressors, parents spend less and less time with their support systems. And even if have time to talk to friends or family, the advice they get is often not helpful. They need someone that truly listens to them, gives helpful advice and cheers them on. More and more people are seeking out coaching. Forbes has said it is one of the fastest growing industries. People are looking for what you have.
Having a certification provides additional credibility when prospective parents are considering you for their coach.
There are 6 components of an extraordinary coaching program to look for when you are seeking out a worthy program. Most programs do not have all six elements. They are:
• Transformational coaching skills
• Curriculum that is results based
• Heart-centered enrollment program
• Business tools for success
• Live training

How do I make sure your online coaching program meets my needs?
Let’s face it, this class is asking for a big commitment from you in both time and money. How do you know before you even begin if this is the right place to invest your resources? Trust yourself and listen to the quiet voice within you that says “Yes!” Your work matters. After all, we don’t want anyone in the class who doesn’t want to be there. Parenting coaching is all about relationships. We communicate regularly to ensure our relationship clear, clean, and mutually beneficial. Your payment is non refundable but is transferable to another training.
Do people pay for parent coaching?
Definitely. What is it really worth for parents to turn their child’s embarrassing behavior around? Our coaching skills get results and that is what parents pay us for.
I don’t feel like my family is perfect. Why would anyone want to take advice from me?
People don’t pay for perfection. In fact, it is often a turn off. They pay for authenticity. When you share your parenting failures they often feel relieved. You have given them permission to not be perfect.
What if I have to miss a session?
Your session will be taped if you have to miss a session, as long as you notify us in advance.
I am not good with computers. Is Zoom a difficult platform to operate?
No. It is very easy. If you have questions, ask your teenager! Or give us a call. We would be happy to help.
I am already a certified coach from another company. Will I learn anything new?
Absolutely. There will be a plethora of fresh content. However, there may be some repetition, however we have found that when you hear something a second time, you get it at a whole new level.
