Joyful Courage Podcast

A conscious parenting podcast

Welcome, friend! I am so happy you have found your way here. My name is Casey O’Roarty, and I am the host of the Joyful Courage Parenting Podcast.

This is a weekly show that is designed to entertain and inform as I tease apart all there is to learn on the parenting journey. My solo shows and expert guests interviews are packed full of useful nuggets for parents to take away and integrate into their own experience.

Eps 390: SOLO SHOW – 3 myths of tough love and what teens actually need

Parents are often drawn to "do something" when their kids are making mistakes - but tough love (and by tough love I mean punitive consequences and punishment - taking things away, grounding our kids, isolation, yelling, blaming, silent treatments) doesn't typically deliver what you may intend for it to deliver. There is another way to frame it, another way to think about what our teens need to thrive into young adulthood. Listen in as I tease it apart during today's solo show!
