What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

Right, so I’m just getting started on human-ing, I’m 9 months into the journey, but man, it’s been a difficult road already. I’ve had so many opportunities to feel like a failure, to feel guilty and unsure and my goodness, so courage, I think about the willingness to continue to move forward and to continue to take responsibility for my own experiences and my joy so rather than making my son responsible for how I feel, that willingness to continue to look at my own stuff, and look at, “Okay, I’m reacting to my son right now but I think, actually, this has to do with something about me and am I willing to take a look at that for both of our sakes?”

And I don’t think that’s easy. I don’t think the road that I’ve chosen, to be willing to look at the hard stuff, that’s not easy but it’s the path that I’m choosing to go down. I think, as a result, your phrase, your brand, Joyful Courage totally speaks to me. I’m on a mission to find joy and I talk about joy a lot but I think that it takes courage to be willing to look at if I’m not experiencing joy, it probably has a lot more to do with me than it does anyone else around me and I don’t think having a son is going to make that any easier, right, this is another character in my story to get to bring things up for me to get to see that I couldn’t see because I’d never been in the context of a parent. I’m so grateful for him already, for being my teacher and I am brave enough to be willing to continue to travel this road and I’m grateful for friends like you to help me and remind me when I get stuck and need some support because it’s not easy but we have each other, right, and that’s what I’m trying to create with Personal Pep Talk. I don’t have all the answers but I can help love you through it if you’re going through it too.

This week’s content:

  • Positive parenting is easy when there isn’t a lot of challenge – more challenging when our kids are rubbing up against our triggers
  • Toolbox metaphor
    • Higher our emotion, more likely we use desperate tools (rewards and punishment)
    • The more tools we put in to toolbox, the more likely it is that the ineffective tools of rewards and punishment slide to the bottom
    • We can always do better
  • Relationship matters!!!!!!
    • When our relationships are disconnected, navigating behavior in a harsh way isn’t useful for anyone
    • Fear takes us towards harsh punishment
  • Mistakes are opportunities to learn
  • There are always consequences
  • Inviting out kids into relationship
    • Can feel uncomfortable
    • Taking accountability for how the relationship currently is and get vulnerable
    • Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean we stop being curious with our kids
  • Start paying attention to the body
    • Support ourselves by noticing what is happening inside
    • We get more access to our toolbox when we are grounded and neutral
    • At the end of the day what is most useful is your relationship
    • NOT permission for being a permissive parent – still hold boundaries
    • Stronger relationship the more likely your child will open up and talk to you
  • Creating an environment where our kids can thrive and be a soft landing when they get it wrong
  • Shame/blame does not promote accountability and personal responsibility

She has a Bachelor of Psychology from UCLA, a Masters from Columbia University’s Teacher College in Curriculum and Instruction. She’s currently working on her doctorate. We will be discussing responding to tragic events like the Tree of Life Synagogue tragedy, as well as Judaism, positive discipline and how we can all support each other better. Join us!

"None of us should feel alone.”

“People are children and they just want to belong.”

“God gives us many opportunities for goodness and kindness and this is another way for us to remind ourselves that we need to have hope and we need to have love.”

“We have to come together now, more than ever.”

What you’ll hear in this episode:

  • How Irvine Hebrew Day School handled the tragedy in Pittsburgh
  • Developmental appropriate levels of information about tragic events
  • Balancing the feelings of parents and children in the wake of tragedy
  • Meeting hate with love - finding inner resources in the face of fear
  • Ways to encourage our kids to accept others
  • The freeing power of compassion
  • Parallels between the Torah and positive discipline
  • How non-Jewish people can support the Jewish community
  • Teaching our kids about leadership and civic responsibility

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

It’s being brave every day, to make the right decisions for ourselves and those that love us and inviting joy despite the challenges, despite the heartache, we have to choose joy and that’s what you’re doing every day with joyful courage and I think that there’s no other way to live our lives at this point.
