Family Skills & Strategy


Confidential Coaching Program (12 sessions) with Linda Clement, parenting coach

"Providing families tactical and actionable advice to make changes that last"

Linda has this amazing superpower that allows her to uncover family dynamics and situations that make things complicated for the family. Her expertise and knowledge are especially useful, but the best thing is that she provides tactical and actionable advice that you can start using right away. She makes her sessions fun and interactive and has helped my husband and me to better understand our16 year old girl. Less tears, less stress, more meaningful connections. Thank you, Linda!!  ~Andrea Ricárdez

What's Included

Our Family Skills & Strategy series is designed to take parents from the struggles of 'normal' families --sibling rivalry, defiance, bedtime and mealtime conflicts-- to the way it's supposed to be.


Families are not supposed to be conflict and struggles all the time...


Imagine having every day go smoothly:

  • even with a toddler who doesn't eat anything

  • even while tweens are experiencing hormones

  • even with homework and chores

  • even when it's time to go (home from the park, to bed, to school...)


Imagine having the strong communication skills it takes to lead your family...


Parents who benefit from our basic coaching program want their family to be:

Our programs may not be right for you...

Many parents aren't prepared for the challenges or time commitment involved in stepping up to hone their skills to become leaders as parents... and that's okay. 


Some parents need more support of a different kind, first. Whether it's therapy for childhood trauma, or treatment for problematic habits, many people aren't yet in a position to really work on their parenting skills right now. It can be too time consuming, too complicated, or just too expensive.


We can still help, with some more specific skill building or through self-directed and self-paced courses that are less difficult fit into the schedule or budget. Some people are ready for a parenting book, to join an online parenting community, or just to receive emails with regular parenting tips and suggestions...


There are parents who are struggling in their partnership, with a parent who is too disengaged from the family or relationship, or too defensive to commit to working on their family dynamics or parenting skills... that's okay, too. We can work with one parent at a time, on their skills and and strategies when they are seeking to improve... and we might suggest the Families in Conflict program, instead, to work on communicating more effectively together even if ultimately there is not an intact family unit.


And some parents just don't work well with Linda's quirky, light-hearted and often very direct style of coaching. Whether you're a parent who needs a softer, more sombre approach, or just very reactive to sardonic wit, we know that Linda is not everyone's cup of tea... and that's okay, too.


We happily refer parents to the program, course, book, or other expert helper (therapist or coach) we think is the most suitable to each parent.
