What does Joyful Courage mean to you?
When I hear Joyful Courage I think it has to do with being brave without worrying about the outcome, just for the moment of the bravery. Like the joy of taking the leap or asking someone out without worrying how it turns out.
See you next week!! :)

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:
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
