Terms of Service

Last Updated March 15, 2024

Please review our Terms of Service. If you do not agree to these terms, you should not engage our Services.

Happy Parenting and Families, LLC (known throughout this document as “I“, “We“, “Us”, “Our” or “Coach“) are proud to offer product and services (known collectively throughout this document as “Services”).

General Terms & Conditions

While engaging in our Services, you remain solely responsible for creating and implementing your own physical, mental, and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions, and results arising out of or resulting from using our Services. You acknowledge that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of your life, including parenting, work, finances, health, relationships, education, and recreation. You agree that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate coaching principles into those areas and implementing choices is exclusively your responsibility. As such, you agree our Coach is not and will not be liable or responsible for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of, any of our Services provided by Coach.

You further acknowledge we do not provide therapy services and that our Services do not substitute for therapy if needed, nor do our Services prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease. You acknowledge that coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association and that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, or other professional advice by legal, medical, or other qualified professionals and that it is your exclusive responsibility to seek such independent professional guidance as needed.

In order to enhance the coaching relationship, you agree to communicate honestly, to be open to feedback and assistance and to create the time and energy to participate fully in the Service you purchase. This may include regularly scheduling coaching appointments. While Coach will generally remind you to schedule or reschedule a meeting, it is ultimately your responsibility to schedule or reschedule a meeting.

All of our Services must be paid for in advance. Please note that any and all installments, once paid, shall be nonrefundable. That being said, if you are dissatisfied with the Service you purchased and you have made a good faith effort to fully participate in your enrolled Service, including scheduling and attending regular and recurring coaching meetings, you must notify us in writing as soon as possible, but no later than 30 days after the date of the most recent meeting. If you are still unsatisfied after we have been made aware of the complaint in writing and have attempted resolution, we will refund you for any Service not yet already received.

Please be aware that the Coach-Client relationship is not considered a legally confidential relationship like the medical and legal professions and thus communications are not subject to the protection of any legally recognized privilege.

That being said, Coach agrees not to disclose any information pertaining to you without your written consent unless such disclosure is required by law or is necessary in Coach’s reasonable opinion to provide the Coaching Service. Please note that confidential information does not include information that: (a) was in Coach’s possession prior to its being furnished by you; (b) is generally known to the public or in your industry; (c) is obtained by Coach from a third party, without breach of any obligation to you; (d) is independently developed by Coach without use of or reference to your confidential information; (e) Coach is required by statute, lawfully issued subpoena, or by court order to disclose; (f) is disclosed to Coach and as a result of such disclosure Coach reasonably believes there to be an imminent or likely risk of danger or harm to you or others; and (g) involves illegal activity. In addition, confidentiality is not guaranteed in the event you elect to have a third party participate in the Coaching Service as well as in such cases where Client consists of more than one person. Confidentiality is also not guaranteed if you engage our Services for Supervised Visitation, which often requires disclosure of information to 3rd parties or the court.

If you engage our services you have an obligation to raise any confidentiality questions or concerns with Coach in a timely manner.

Location

Depending on the Service you are engaging, the Service will be provided via telecoaching or in-person.

In-person coaching is only available in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area at a mutually agreed upon location. There may be a mileage charge added for locations more than 20 miles from Minneapolis.

Telecoaching is the provision of Coaching Services whereby you and Coach are in separate locations and such services are being delivered over electronic, often internet-based, technology tools. When using telecoaching there are some risks, including but not limited to: internet connections and cloud services could cease working or become too unstable to use; cloud-based service personnel, IT assistants, and malicious actors (such as “hackers”) may have the ability to access your private information that is transmitted or stored in the process of service delivery; computer or smartphone hardware can have sudden failures or run out of power; or local power services can go out. Therefore, interruptions may disrupt services at important moments, and Coach may be unable to reach you quickly or using the most effective tools. In the event a technical failure does occur during a meeting, Coach and Client will always attempt to reconnect to the meeting, even if it seemed that they were about to finish the meeting. For all meetings held via telecoaching, Coach will initiate the scheduled meetings by providing a video conference/telephonic meeting invitation to your e-mail address on file. It is your responsibility to immediately inform Coach of any updates to your contact information. You are additionally responsible for downloading any required software necessary to access the video/telephonic conferencing call prior to the scheduled starting time.

If you choose to engage our Services that are held via telecoaching, you acknowledge and understand there may be security risks when engaging in telecoaching, including but not limited to cloud-based service personnel, IT assistants, and malicious actors (such as “hackers”) having the ability to access your private information that is transmitted or stored in the process of service delivery. As such, you agree that Coach shall not be held liable for breach of confidentiality in such circumstances.

Fees

When you engage our Services by scheduling your appointment and signing our Agreement, you agree to pay the fee associated with that Service as outlined in our Agreement. You may request a different fee or make arrangements for an alternative payment schedule prior to signing our Agreement.

All fees paid are non-refundable. If you fail to make a payment when due, then the Coaching Service will be suspended until payment has been made. Please note that all fees are subject to change upon written notice, at which time Coach will give Client the option to continue or terminate their Service.

Coach may from time to time use the services of a third-party vendor to administer and process payments. By using our Services, you agree to abide by and accept all terms of service and/or policies and procedures of such third-party vendors as may be required by such third-party vendors. Moreover, you agree that in no event shall Coach be liable to you for damages of any kind resulting from your use of third-party vendors, including but not limited to any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, punitive, exemplary, or special damages.

Cancellations

It is your responsibility to join the scheduled meeting at the scheduled meeting time. If you join the meeting late, then Coach has no obligation to extend the meeting to account for the late arrival time. If you fail to join the meeting within 15 minutes of the meeting start time, then you will be marked as a no-show, the meeting will be cancelled, and you will be responsible for the full cost of the appointment.

If you need to cancel a meeting, then you should notify Coach at least 48 hours in advance of the scheduled meeting, unless it is an emergency. Coach will then work with you in good faith to reschedule the missed meeting. In the event Coach needs to modify the scheduled appointment time, Coach will notify Client prior to the scheduled appointment time. Coach will make every reasonable effort to notify Client of appointment modifications with at least 24 hours prior to scheduled appointment time.

Please see the Group Coaching and Ongoing Support sections for special cancellation terms for those Services.

Termination of Services

Either you or the Coach may terminate the Coaching Service at any time upon 1 week’s written notice. You agree to compensate Coach for the Coaching Service rendered through and including the effective date of termination of the Coaching Service.

For Subscription Services such as our Text Messaging Program and Ongoing Support Program, you are able to manage your subscription directly from our website. If your cancel your subscription through the client portal on our website we recommend you do so at least 3 days in advance of scheduled payment to avoid future charges.

Limited Liability

Except as expressly provided in our Coaching Agreement, Coach makes no guarantees, representations or warranties of any kind or nature, express or implied with respect to the Coaching Service negotiated, agreed upon and rendered. In no event shall Coach be liable to you for any indirect, incidental, consequential, or special damages. Notwithstanding any damages that you may incur, Coach’s entire liability, and your exclusive remedy, shall be limited to the amount actually paid by you to Coach for the Coaching Service rendered through and including the termination date.

Dispute Resolution

If a dispute arises between you and the Coach that cannot be resolved by mutual consent, you and Coach agree to attempt to mediate in good faith for up to sixty (60) days after written notice of the dispute. If the dispute is not resolved, and in the event of legal action, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover attorney’s fees and court costs from the other party.

Additional Terms & Conditions by Service

Individual Coaching (includes the following Services – Private Parent Coaching (4 or 8 sessions) and Co-Parenting Parent Coaching):

Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and you in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize personal and parental potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal or parental goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.

We agree to provide the Service outlined on our website after you engage our Services by scheduling your appointment, signing our Agreement and paying your first invoice. Our Service includes private coaching for 60 minutes in length, access to a parenting coach outside of meeting time (Coach will make their best faith effort to respond in a timely manner but cannot guarantee a set timed response) and our Text Messaging Program. While Coach will remind you to schedule or reschedule a meeting, it is ultimately your responsibility to schedule or reschedule a meeting.

You are responsible for any messaging or data rates associated with our Text Messaging Program. You may elect to stop receiving text messages at any time by either replying ‘STOP’ or emailing us.

Coach will initiate all scheduled meetings by providing a video conference/telephonic meeting invitation to your email address on file. It is your responsibility to immediately inform Coach of any updates to your contact information. You are additionally responsible for downloading any required software necessary to access the video/telephonic conferencing call prior to the scheduled starting time.

It is your responsibility to join the scheduled meeting at the scheduled meeting time. If you join the meeting late, then Coach has no obligation to extend the meeting to account for the late arrival time. If you fail to join the meeting within 15 minutes of the meeting start time, then you will be marked as a no-show and the meeting will be cancelled. You will remain responsible for payment for the missed meeting.

To encourage you to commit to coaching and to scheduling regular recurring appointments, our Individual Coaching Services all have expiration dates. For our 4 session packages, you must use your sessions within 4 months from the date you engage our Services by signing our Coaching Agreement. For our 8 session package, you must use your sessions within 6 months from the date you engage our Services by signing our Coaching Agreement. Any sessions that have not been used by the designated timeframes will be forfeited.

Group Coaching:

Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between Coach and Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires Client to maximize personal and parental potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal or parental goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.

Group coaching is similar to individual coaching. However, in group coaching, Coach works with multiple people, including Client, to help them achieve their goals and aspirations, while also working closely with and guiding each member of the group. Added benefits from group coaching include the opportunity to build a community of parents, share personal experiences, and give and receive support within a structured environment.

We agree to provide the Service outlined on our website after you engage our Services by confirming your commitment to a group, signing our Agreement and paying your first invoice. Our Service includes 6 group coaching sessions lasting 90 minutes in length, the opportunity to schedule a 30 minute one-on-one coaching session each month, access to a parenting coach outside of meeting time (Coach will make their best faith effort to respond in a timely manner but cannot guarantee a set timed response) and our Text Messaging Program.

You are responsible for any messaging or data rates associated with our Text Messaging Program. You may elect to stop receiving text messages at any time by either replying ‘STOP’ or emailing us.

Prior to the first group meeting, Coach will elicit scheduling preferences from the group, and then schedule all group meetings in advance of the first meeting. You are advised to choose a group meeting time that allows you to participate fully in the Group Program.

As part of the Group Program, you have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Coach for 30 minutes in length each month. For one-on-one meetings, while Coach will remind you to schedule or reschedule a meeting, it is ultimately your responsibility to schedule or reschedule a meeting. Failure to schedule or attend your meeting each month will result in forfeiture of any unused meeting (meetings do not roll over to future months).

For group meetings and one-on-one meetings, Coach will initiate all scheduled meetings by providing a video conference/telephonic meeting invitation to your email address on file. It is your responsibility to immediately inform Coach of any updates to your contact information. You are additionally responsible for downloading any required software necessary to access the video/telephonic conferencing call prior to the scheduled starting time.

It is your responsibility to join the scheduled meeting at the scheduled meeting time. If you join the meeting late, then Coach has no obligation to extend the meeting to account for the late arrival time. Refunds will not be issued if you miss a group meeting. In the event you miss a group meeting, Coach, at Coach’s sole discretion, may elect to do one or more of the following: (1) make a best faith effort to record the group meeting and provide you access to the recording for a limited time; or (2) schedule 1 makeup group meeting at Coach’s convenience within 30 days of the missed group meeting.

For one-on-one meetings, if you fail to join the one-on-one meeting within 15 minutes of the meeting start time, then you will be marked as a no-show and the meeting will be cancelled. If there is still availability in Coach’s schedule for the month, you will be given the opportunity to reschedule your missed appointment. However, Coach shall have no obligation to reschedule. If you are unable to reschedule due to lack of availability, your one-on-one meeting will be forfeited for the month.

In regards to confidentiality, confidentiality between members of the group is not protected by the same standards as confidentiality between the Coach and you, and Coach cannot control what information members of the group may disclose. Essentially, your confidentiality cannot be guaranteed in group meetings. As such, confidentiality within group meetings is a shared responsibility among all members and is based on mutual trust and respect. Each member of the group will be asked to follow group rules to help ensure confidentiality, however it cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly, you agree that Coach shall not be held liable for breach of confidentiality in such circumstances.

Early Intervention Services:

Our Intervention Services provides Client the opportunity to schedule a 90-minute in-home one-one one meeting with Coach on an as-needed basis.

An informal autism screening will be provided during the meeting. This screening does not guarantee your child has or does not have autism. Rather it is a screening tool to assess for initial signs of autism and to allow for referral for a professional evaluation should it be needed.

Supervised Visitation Monitoring Services:

Our Supervised Services combine individual parent coaching and supervised visitation monitoring. However, in supervised visitation monitoring, Coach serves as a neutral 3rd party. While Coach will provide parenting guidance to you through parent coaching when needed or requested, Coach’s primary duty is to observe your interactions and ensure the safety and wellbeing for all parties present.

Our Supervision Services provide you the opportunity to schedule in-home supervised visitation monitoring on an as-needed basis. Our Supervision Services also include providing documentation of such monitoring to you and/or any third party as required by any supervision requirements that you are obligated to meet, including but not limited to any requirements as set forth in the Minnesota Standards for Professional and Nonprofessional Parenting Time Supervisors issued by the Minnesota Judicial Branch.

Subscription Programs (includes Text Messaging Program and Ongoing Support Program):

All Services in our Subscription Programs include monthly auto payments. Your first payment is due upon enrolling in the monthly subscription program of your choice.

Your credit card on file will be automatically charged every 30 days until you elect to terminate the Coaching Service. All payments are nonrefundable.

Because fees for our Subscription Services are incurred at regular monthly intervals, in order to avoid paying for an additional month’s charge we advise you to (a) provide written notice of termination at least 1 week before the next monthly payment is incurred or (b) cancel your Subscription through the client portal on our website at least 3 days in advance of your next payment.

You are expected to keep your payment information up to date to ensure timely payment. If you fail to make a monthly payment when due, then all Services will be suspended until payment has been made. Please note that all fees are subject to change upon written notice to you, at which time Coach will give you the option to continue or terminate your subscription services.

– Text Messaging Program

The Texting Program provides you the opportunity to access standard text messaging about parenting several times per week on an ongoing basis until termination.

You are responsible for any messaging or data rates associated with our Text Messaging Program. You may elect to stop receiving text messages at any time by either replying ‘STOP’, emailing us or cancelling your subscription through the client portal on our website.

– Ongoing Support Program

Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between Coach and Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires Client to maximize personal and parental potential.

You are responsible for any messaging or data rates associated with our Text Messaging Program. You may elect to stop receiving text messages at any time by either replying ‘STOP’ or emailing us.
