Nabila Haris
Parent Coach

Nabila has been passionately practicing Respectful Parenting (RP) for the past nine years. She has completed a six-month ‘Parents’ Camp; Teachers’ Certificate Course’ (PTCC) from Educational Resource & Development Centre (ERDC). She discovered true joy and healing in her own motherhood and believes in the value of parental efforts to break the generational cycles and hopes that together, we are able to create a whole new world, better than the present.
Kids’ academic issues are a huge source of stress for parents these days. Nabila has deep insight on how children actually learn and would love to help parents deal with issues of education, homework, school woes and how to preserve a child’s natural curiosity and interest in learning. All of these together serve to lift the heavy weight off the parents’ shoulders. She can also provide guidance on homeschooling, beginning from what it is and what it is not.
Nabila can help parents explore their triggers, the roadblocks that stand in the way of RP and remind them why self-compassion and ‘staying human’ really make a difference. She can guide them on how to build life-long nurturing relationships with their kids through communication and problem-solving skills that are respectful and effective, and teach them how to co-regulate, validate and set boundaries.
Nabila is an enthusiastic self-learner and incorporates learnings from books on Human Psychology, Self- development and Parenting in her coaching. She also prioritizes reviewing all new learnings in the guiding light of the timeless principles given in the Quran. In her free time, she reads, watches comedy shows and plays Minecraft with her son. She lives in Karachi with her loving husband and a wonderful 9-year-old son.
