Our response matters
Our kids make mistakes
BUT WHAT DO WE DO???
Kids do better when they feel better. – Jane Nelsen
Kids want to succeed, they don't always know how. – Ross Greene
A Misbehaving child is a discouraged child. – Rudolf Dreikurs
Humans are always moving towards a sense of belonging and significance, am I connected? Do I matter? – from Aderian Theory
The most powerful tool you have for influencing behavior is the relationship that you nurture with your child. Choosing into the work of Joyful Courage, which really means being willing to grow and practice awareness, being present to your child and your experience, and hold space for your kids, no matter how they are showing up, THIS will nurture and preserve relationship.
So – what do you think? Does this make sense to you?? Do you have thoughts about this?
Come join the community discussion over in Live and Love with Joyful Courage. This is a closed FB group for listeners and parents that appreciate this conversation and are committed to learning and supporting each other on the journey.

Journey to Joy Ecourse
Journey to Joy is a 3 part offer.
Each Module contains a video, audio and workbook to guide you in doing your work.
You will increase your awareness around the areas you are stuck (you know, the irritation that never seems to go away... the exhaustion, the guilt and shame that shows up so often after you have "dealt with" the challenges your kids bring on a regular basis.
You will spend time exploring new choices, new ways of being... Inviting in the qualities that are missing. Love, compassion, self acceptance and non-judgement... You will learn how to open up your body and allow these emotions in.
You will create a practice for teaching your body and mind a NEW pattern, making this new way of being more readily available when you need it.
