Parenting for the Season You’re In - MIDDLE SCHOOL AND BEYOND

I am super excited to announce that there is a BRAND NEW LIVE CLASS happening for parents of Middle Schoolers and BEYOND in March!

 

Each week will be a live session with me, where I will deliver content and facilitate learning, followed by time for parent hot seats - time for parents to share their real and relevant challenges and get laser sharp coaching from me!  AND, each week participants will get a downloadable guide as well as a companion audio meditation to use to stay connected to what they are working to integrate into their relationships with their adolescent.

 

Some of what we will cover includes:

 

 

  • Being with the roller coaster of the teen years
  • Recognize where we are adding to our kids discouragement, and how to step back into relationship
  • Communication tools that build resilience and connection
  • How kindness and firmness looks the same, and different as our kids get older
  • Being the parent you want to be

 

 

School, screens, peers, attitude - all of what you learn during the Seasons course will support you showing up to the challenges of THIS season in a way that aligns with your values.

 

Here’s what parents said about the Seasons course: 

 

“In these uncertain times I needed the grounding I get from Positive Discipline. Casey does a brilliant job of teaching the core concepts and guiding you through the challenges of putting them into practice. This program is for everyone. If you are familiar with Positive Discipline it’s a fantastic refresher. If you are new to Positive Discipline this will be a game-changer for your family. Your time and money will be very well spent. ”

— Mama Sarah

 

“I loved learning what draws us closer to our children and what pushes our children away. I know this stuff, however it was good to have it in a list that so clearly gave me visuals for how those actions show up in my life.”

— Mama Kimberly

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

It means to be brave, to do whatever you want to do in life. Taking a step into the unknown and creating the life you want to live. The first step would be to understand what kind of life you want to live. I know that it’s not an easy step, but that’s the joy part of it. The courage is actually doing it.

 

See you next week!! :)
