When I read an article about the increasing number of pediatric mental health emergency visits, I knew something was wrong. Little did I know, it was only the tip of the iceberg - beneath the surface, these children were crying out for help in ways that weren't being properly understood. 

In this episode of the Mastermind Parenting podcast, I discuss the rising number of pediatric mental health emergency visits and the importance of coaching in parenting. I was inspired to talk about this after reading an article in the Houston Chronicle. With proper coaching, parents can better understand their child's behavior and communicate more effectively. A lack of coaching often leads parents down a rabbit hole of diagnostics and expensive tests, when they could be finding solutions through a parenting coach instead.

In this episode, you will be able to: 

1. Discover why pediatric mental health emergency visits are on the rise. 

2. Understand the significant role coaching plays in successful parenting. 

3. Learn techniques to manage strong-willed children without resorting to chemical interventions. 

4. Recognize the differences between various coaching styles and training options.

And much more!
