What is a Bilingual & Multilingual Parent Coach? What do they do?
Bilingual & Multilingual Parent Coaches help parents learn the right information and research. They help parents uncover myths vs. facts.
They advise parents and caregivers about effective approaches and strategies. They help make the bilingual or multilingual journey successful.
They guide parents and caregivers through our systematic, method of family ‘Language Planning’. They provide short- and long-term considerations.
They aim to empower parents/caregivers with the knowledge and strategies to advocate for the maintenance of their languages and cultures.
Bilingual & Multilingual Parent Coaches offer families clear solutions for challenges they may experience on their bilingual or multilingual journeys.
They help families connect to their own languages and cultures but they can also help parents and caregivers learn how their child can acquire new languages at different ages/stages.
HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO RUN A BUSINESS THAT HELPS PARENTS & CHILDREN, PROVIDES YOU WITH REWARDING WORK AND ENABLES YOU TO MAKE A NEW INCOME?
These days, our world is global but many people are losing their ability to speak their home or heritage languages. This is due to several factors but the truth is, multilingualism is needed more than ever before. That’s why it’s so important that parents and caregivers get the right information and support to raise their children bilingually or multilingually.
Some of their top challenges include: not being entirely sure why they should preserve their home languages; feeling uncertain about how to go about it, and the possibility of giving up if they haven’t had initial success. Also, there are some parents who are not bilingual or multilingual themselves but would love to see their children grow up speaking additional languages. They don’t always know how to make this happen.
This is where our Bilingual and Multilingual Parent Coaches come in! They help educate, guide and support parents/caregivers who want to raise multilingual kids. They teach them that their multilingual journey is a ‘marathon, not a sprint.’ They give them the right tools and strategies to succeed.
Whether you’re interested in running a full-time business, adding a new stream of revenue to your current role OR creating a part-time side-job; our 6-week (24 hour) online Bilingual & Multilingual Parent Coaching Program may be ideal for you.
This Program gives you everything you need to help parents and caregivers raise bilingual or multilingual children. First, we provide you with our signature, 6-step system that you will learn to implement in your coaching sessions. We’ll be sure that you get all the expertise and practice you need to use it effectively with parents. Then, we’ll help you create your own unique services that are custom-built around your strengths, personal interests and goals. We’ll teach you how to reach the people who need your help; and we’ll give you all the tools, resources and marketing support to get started. Within 1 month of completing our Program, our goal is for you to have at least two strong leads that can kick-start your Parent Coaching Business.
This Program is not suited to everyone, however. We only work with a small group of people who have the right mix of skills, potential and desire to succeed. We know that by selecting the right people to become Bilingual & Multilingual Parent Coaches, we are increasing their chance of success. This then translates to helping more families raise bilingual and multilingual children. It’s actually a winning formula!
WHO IS LEADING THIS PROGRAM?

THIS PROGRAM DOESN’T REALLY ‘END’ AFTER YOU BECOME CERTIFIED
All of our BML Parent Coaches continue to receive ongoing support at no additional cost in our online Coaching Community. This is a place for them to continue to learn, ask questions and get access to regular, live calls. Being part of the Coaching Community allows them to share their real-world experiences as they go through each stage of launching their businesses or Programs.

Do I need to be bilingual or multilingual myself to be a BML Parent Coach?
While it is of course desirable, it is not necessary. You can still be a strong support and advocate for bilingual and multilingual children and families. Part of your role is to connect parents to community resources and supports, and these should be based on the languages and cultures of your families.
One major advantage you have if you are bilingual or multilingual yourself is that you can provide your Coaching Services to your parents/caregivers in your own languages. This is ideal.
Do I need to be a Parent or Caregiver Myself to be a BML Parent Coach?
Again, it’s not necessary because you are still able to educate, guide and support parents with successful strategies and approaches. It can be an advantage if you’re a parent or caregiver yourself because this can give you additional insights. However, if you are not a parent, we will still be able to help you connect to your clients through your own strengths and unique experiences.
I've never been a Parent Coach or Worked with Parents before. Will I be Successful?
There are specific characteristics of people who are well-suited to becoming BML Parent Coaches. They have a mix of previously-demonstrated leadership abilities combined with ‘people skills.’ We will be able to advise you if you have the right potential for thriving in this business. Also, don’t forget that you will become trained in our methods and systems and you will also get opportunities to try-out or practice with real clients before you go out on your own! You will be guided every step of the way.
Running a successful Coaching business includes being able to generate leads and clients consistently. These are some of the most important skills that you will be learning throughout the Program. We will help you identify where your best customers are and show you how to create systems that help you run a successful and sustainable business.
How much is the Program?
The cost of the Bilingual and Multilingual Parent Coaching Program is £2,499 (approximately $3,000 USD). If you join for our very first Introductory cohort, you will receive a 40% discount.
Keep in mind that this is a high-level Program designed and led by experts who have already created successful businesses. The amount of information, support and guidance you will receive in this Program are invaluable. You will also gain lifetime access to our BML Parent Coaching Community – an online network of other BML Parent Coaches who are just like you.
CAN I PAY IN INSTALMENTS?
Yes. We offer a payment plan for non-discounted cohorts. We do not provide a payment plan option for our Introductory Program beginning December 6th, 2023.
Can you guarantee my success?
Unfortunately, we cannot make any guarantees about your success as a Bilingual and Multilingual Parent Coach. There are many factors that contribute to your success. Some are related to your personality, drive, decision-making skills and even your ability to direct your own day-to-day schedule. Once you apply, we will let you know if we feel you are a good candidate. We’ll be honest if we feel you are not suited to the Program in order to avoid wasting your time and money.
Are Bilingual & Multilingual Parent Coaches a 'Real Thing?'
Yes! There are actually many people running their own businesses doing this already around the world. We decided to create our own Coaching Program in order to spread our company impact as well as create specific standards of excellence. Our long-term goal is to have some of our successful BML Parent Coaches become trainers through their own languages and within their own communities. In this way, we can support so many more parents and caregivers to hold onto their languages/cultures and even add new ones if they want!
I have ADHD. Does this mean I would not be a good Bilingual and Multilingual Parent Coach?
Definitely not! In fact, some of the most successful people with learning and attentional differences thrive when they’re able to create their own businesses, work routines and structures. It’s all about being aware of what works for you in terms of being productive, staying organized and setting a few priorities each week. We provide you with specific tools and strategies that can help you to thrive with the learning sessions; and also with your follow-up activities.
Do you have a money-back guarantee if I don't like the Program?
We provide you with a 7-day, 100% money-back guarantee if you are unhappy with the Program or if you decide it’s just not for you. During that time, it’s an opportunity to see if you like the content and topic and also whether you feel you are likely to be successful. Since we do connect with you before the sessions begin, we are able to tell you more about it and discuss any potential barriers to your success (before you even start the Program).
