Join us!

“My mission is to make a more peaceful world, one sweet boy at a time.”

 “Parenting is difficult because to do it well you must look inside yourself; you need to know what makes you sore and what really pushes your buttons. Looking at oneself, really looking inside is a challenge, the thing is, the consequence of not looking at oneself is even worse.”

  • Learning to be unattached to your child’s reactions to limits
  • The impact of isolation on the parenting experience
  • Stereotypes of masculinity and how they impact emotional intimacy
  • How to transition your boys from exhibiting aggressive behaviors to being more calm and increasing accountability by reducing fear
  • The importance of not losing sight of your boy’s goodness despite poor behavior
  • Working towards discipline from a place of connection
  • The value of being curious about what’s underneath anger
  • How to parenting in a way that honors the developing brain
  • Addressing off-track behaviors through connection and taking a proactive approach
  • Helping kids handle the pressure to save face
  • Techniques to address separation anxiety
  • How to set healthy limits in a loving way while creating safe spaces for exploration
  • Supporting boys through loudness and recognizing it for what it is

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

“Working in this life for what you feel is important – being you. Courage means being me and supporting my children and the people I know to be them fully. There’s nothing more joyful than being real and full and who you are and the gift you have to give.”
