Joyful Courage for Parents of Teens

::::

This week’s guest is DJ Johnson. DeAntwann “DJ” Johnson is a husband, father, author, mentor, coach, counselor, and sports statistician. He grew up in the Indiana foster care system and yet despite that, has gone on to lead a successful, and fulfilling life. Before spending nine years in the foster care system, DJ suffered child abuse, domestic abuse, and emotional trauma. At one point, he wanted to end his life, but he realized that he was on this earth for a purpose.

DJ fulfills that purpose by using his experiences not only to help establish relationships with the students he serves, but he helps parents better connect with their teenagers.

DJ specializes in helping parents bridge the communication gap between them and their child to ensure that their child has room to be the best versions of themselves.

Takeaways from the show:

  • DJ’s story
  • Adverse childhood experience
  • Using your experience to help others
  • Old school parenting way going out the window
  • Getting the hang of the new school parenting
  • Balancing being kind and firm
  • Different parenting styles fit different children
  • Foundation of respect and dignity with your kids
  • Conditioning coming to the surface
  • Let teens learn through experiences
  • Repairing relationships

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

When I think about courage, I think about when you’re initially jumping into courage and there’s fear behind it or it’s a serious thing. When we add joy to it i think it’s the excitement of doing something that's mostly going to end up in a good result.

So Joyful Courage to me is “I am happily jumping out and taking a leap to something I think is ultimately going to benefit me and my family.”

See you next week!! :)

The membership is for moms of tweens and teens to have a place to come for community and support. 

Don’t you wish there was somewhere you could go and just be super real about all the things when it comes to being a mom and a woman in the world? Somewhere you wouldn’t be judged or worry about being judged by having those moments of wanting to check out and call it a day...somewhere you are encouraged to show up just as you are and be held in all of your glory, all of your fear, and all of your desire to be better? That’s what this membership is all about. 

The Living Joyful Courage Membership is a community support that includes two monthly group coaching calls, one 30 minute 1:1 call each quarter, an active community forum, and a book club each quarter, and there is also a retreat every quarter!!

Parenting for The Season You’re In

Parenting for The Season You’re In is a program for parents who are looking for deeper understanding of the challenges they are facing, how they may be contributing to the challenges, and tools and strategies for not only problem solving, but also experiencing more joy on the parenting journey. 

It’s a funky season of parenting. You may be still anticipating the change you know is coming in your child, or perhaps you are witnessing it, and at a loss for how to be there in a way that is helpful and forwarding.

Screen time drama takes on a new intensity, peer influence increases, the mood swings that show up when our kids are trying to figure out who it is they are…. Everything is SUCH A BIG DEAL.

And we are on the sidelines, unsure of what boundaries to hold - when to be flexible, when to be firm…. Feeling so connected and confident one minute, only to spiral into worries and “what ifs” the next.

Sign up now at www.joyfulcourage.com/seasons

The six sessions start Thursday, September 23rd and run Thursdays for 6 weeks from 5:30-7:30pm PDT
