Returning to the practice

What Positive Discipline is to me….

  • Belong significance
  • Iceberg
  • Encouragement
  • Kind and firm
  • Presence/seeing/listening

 What I have learned over time

  • My own beliefs get in the way
  • Fear manifests as control and rigidity
  • Trust is the theme of my life

What it means to have a practice

  • Taking care of me
  • Exploring worthiness
  • Developing intention
  • Modeling what I want
  • Returning to the basics
  • Check assumptions
  • Read and learn about development!
    • What speaks to you???
    • So many people and programs…. What/who makes sense to you? Where do you feel seen?

Things to keep in mind

  • There is no perfect
  • Spirituality/energetics matter – this is bigger than me
  • Its messy, not formulaic
  • Blame serves no one
  • There is no end point
  • Finding a sense of peace inside of the chaos is life goals
  • Comparing is not useful – ever

You are the parent your child picked, not because you are perfect, but because you are you. Parenting is an opportunity to heal old wounds, to mend relationships, and grow as an individual, if you let it be

Today’s guest is Kim Muench. She is a JAI Institute for Parenting certified parenting coach who works with moms of preteens and teenagers. She is the mother of 5 kids ages 13-31. She writes about conscious parenting, provides one on one coaching and workshops to help support moms towards intentional parenting. We are discussing detaching from the outcome. Join us!

"I want to help shift the consciousness of the way that we’re parenting, especially our teenagers.”

“We want to give them opportunities and choices. But you absolutely have to have some boundaries and structure in place.”

“What do we stand for? What do we value? What do we try to instill in our kids?”

“You cannot give what you do not have.”  

“These bumps is where we grow character.”

“You can be right or you can be in relationship."

What you’ll hear in this episode:

-When children arrive at adolescence

- The balance of boundaries and relationship building with our teens

- Choosing your battles

- Defining your family values

- Setting an example for your kids

- Defining non-negotiables

- Ways to offer choices to your teenager

- Detaching from the outcome

- Prioritizing personal care and personal development

- The illusion of control

- Individuation and what that can look like

- Supporting our kids in making better choices with alcohol

- Being okay with kids failing or things taking longer

- Trusting vs hovering - learning to detach

- Taking a long view to your relationship with your kids

 

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

Joyful Courage means to me enthusiastically embracing and supporting the journey of our sons and daughters that have come into the world to live out their journey. Supporting and encouraging them with enthusiasm. And I love the two words together, I think it’s fantastic.

SOLO SHOW!!

Woohoo – how is YOUR back to school? This episode acknowledges what we are all going through as we support our kids and ourselves in coming back to a back to school routine.

I know, it is hard to shake off the summer. But that is what is happening. I share about my own experience with sending off two kids to two very different school settings, and what is coming up for me as they navigate the transition.

And the navigation is still VERY MUCH ALIVE!!

 I mention tools and strategies for finding peace and flow, or at least dull the roar of making this shift, and I am so happy you are listening in!!

Today’s guest is Heather Chauvin. Heather Chauvin has been named the next generation’s thought leader in parenting and women’s leadership. Her mission is to crack women open to their deep potential. Heather is a TEDx speaker and the creator of the Mom Is In Control podcast and has been featured on the OWN network, Huffington Post, TV outlets and others. With wit and wisdom, Heather inspires a global community of women to take back control of their lives and evolve how they want to lead, work, play and parent. We are discussing mindful meditation. Join us!

 

"There was always this contrast of who I wanted to be in the world versus who everyone else thought I should be."

 

“We can’t get our children’s respect unless we respect our children and deeper than that, we need to learn to respect ourselves.”

 

“Mindful meditation to me means awareness. Simple awareness.”

 

“Really, it’s about doing less.”

 

What you’ll hear in this episode:

- The importance of mindfulness for parents and kids

-  Sustainable ambition theory - Survival Mode, Momentum, Thrival Mode

-  Learning to live outside of survival mode

-  Meditation as a tool in parenting and life

- Why it’s easier to teach a child to meditate than an adult

- Co-creation as mindfulness

- Mindfulness for older kids

- Parenting as emotional growth on steroids

- The value of quiet

- Listening to your child without trying to fix them as mindfulness

- Giving yourself permission to let go of how things look

- The responsibility of personal growth and the intergenerational impacts

 

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

Being yourself, simply put. Being yourself and having the courage to figure out who that is and what that feels like and just keep going after the things that light you up, because that’s joy and it’s going to be uncomfortable to do that.
