How Coach-Parenting Was Started

Coach-Parenting was started when Deborah Phillips was trying, unsuccessfully, to potty-train her three-year-old son. After a full year of disappointments and trying every available potty-training technique, Phillips turned to her coaching text books. The books assured Phillips that coaching skills could bring out the best in anyone and she decided to apply the techniques to bringing out the best in her son's potty-training efforts. Within five minutes of applying coaching techniques, Phillips found success in potty-training her son. And that was the beginning of a whole new way of parenting -- Coach-Parenting.
