Joyful Courage for Parents of Teens

::::

My guest today is Leslie Priscilla. Leslie is a first generation non-Black Chicana mother to three biracial children ages 8, 3, and 2.

She is a descendant of Indigenous Tarahumara Rarámuri and Spanish lineages who has resided on occupied Tongva (ton-va) and Acjachemen (hash-i-men) land, also known as Orange County, CA, all of her life.

Leslie shares her medicine by offering coaching, workshops, support and advocacy for Latinx/Chicanx families locally, nationally, and internationally both in-person and online via the Latinx Parenting organization.

Formerly an early childhood teacher and 1:1 behavioral coach, Leslie has worked with children and families for over 13 years. She has a dual degree in Child Development & Family Studies as well as Family Life Education from CSULB, and attended the Masters in Social Work program at Cal State Fullerton before pausing to focus on her babies and the Latinx Parenting movement.

Leslie is trained as a facilitator in various parent education curricula including Trauma-Informed Nonviolent Parenting, Positive Discipline, Supporting Fatherhood Involvement (SFI), Community Parent Education (C.O.P.E) and others. 

She has facilitated groups in both Spanish and English for hundreds of parents in schools, transitional homes, teen shelters, drug rehabilitation centers, and family resource centers throughout Orange County, CA.

Over the years, Leslie has long worked within mental health agencies in positions serving as Interim Director of Parent Education for the Child Abuse Prevention Center in Orange County, Youth & Professional Programs Manager for NAMI Orange County, and as a Consultant for the Dads Matter Program of Children's Bureau.

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

Joyful Courage to me means very much what Brenne Brown would talk about when it comes to being brave, showing up as yourself and finding joy in the experience of living. Really living and receiving all the beauty and experiencing all the joy. Sometimes we forget to enjoy our kids because we focus so much on parenting them and all the tools. I think Joyful Courage is really allowing ourselves to experience it as a whole.

See you next week!! :)

JULY MEMBERSHIP

Hi friends - are you loving this show? Intrigued by the topic that is being teased apart? 

Hungry to dive deeper into discussions like this and others??

I am so excited to let you know that JULY enrollment is open for the Living Joyful Courage Membership program.

Each quarter members get:

  • A 30 minute one on one call with me
  • Twice monthly group calls
  • A private book club
  • A content rich webinar
  • A virtual retreat
  • Ongoing support and connection in out community space
  • PLUS access to all past teen summits during your time in the membership….

This is a group for moms of tweens and teens. Moms who are looking for that extra layer of growing and learning around showing up through the twists and turns of adolescence.

It’s a messy time. 

Maybe you have raised your kids with PD and are finding that you are unsure what this looks like during middle and high school?

Maybe you are just coming into the positive parenting conversation, and need support for shifting into a more connected, less controlling role with your growing child.

Or maybe you are looking for a community of like-minded mamas that are passionate about staying in the motherhood conversation.

We’ve got you.

Here’s what some of the mamas are saying:

“It is great to know that I have a place to go when I'm really struggling with parenting. I feel more hope having this group.”

“I don’t feel as alone, it’s so nice to communicate with so many Mom’s who have an idea of what I’m experiencing. I’ve never felt supported in my parenting journey before and you help me feel supported, thank you Casey! I love the community space. It’s so helpful to be able to reach out for support when I’m experiencing a parenting challenge and to be able to support other Moms who need support too.”

The membership doors will be open through the month of July!!

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

This whole book I wrote has been a massive exercise of joyful courage to me. This was the book that all of that crap that I’ve been through has led to and I’m so proud and happy. It has also been terrifying to put my story out there into the world knowing that substance use disorder is really encamped so there’s people with really strong feelings around how things are expressed. The whole thing has been sheer happiness that this thing is out there but also I’ve been using a lot of courage because it’s really scary to put your story out into the world but it is also incredibly empowering.

See you next week!! :)

PARENTING FOR THE SEASON YOU’RE IN

I took the feedback of all the parents who went through in March and have added a week and tweaked the content a bit to make it an EVER MORE transformational learning experience!!

ENROLLMENT IS OPEN AND SPACE IS LIMITED.

Parenting for the Season You're in (or “the seasons course” as I like to call it) is a five week class for parents of middle and high school aged kids. It is a space for learning the PD tools that support connection and firmness, as well as a gentle look at the ways we may be getting in the way of our adolescents' growth and development.

We will connect around the collective experience of raising teens, learn about teen brain development, consider our parenting style, embody connected firmness, and learn encouragement tools that will sustain us in the years ahead.

After going through the program in March, one parent shared:

I have been struggling with consequences for my teens - what should they be and why aren't they working! We have been locked in a power struggle with my younger teen and I found myself trying to force him to do what I want - control instead of collaboration. This program helped me pivot away from consequences and reframe situations with a view on solutions, and really thinking harder about what part of the work or choice is really mine and which is his..

And another parent offered

I loved how it consistently (the course) helped me to see another way and learn how to be and remember to be in relationship with my teen and not simply trying to fix or control the challenging behaviors.

This is deep learning, my friends, check it out at www.joyfulcourage.com/seasons to get more info and claim your spot!
