Who is this membership for?
Parents who believe relationship matters.
Parents who believe in boundaries WITH love.
Parents who believe in tools that support your heart and your children.
The teen years are tough.
And not only on our kids.
The teen years are really challenging for parents. We are moving through the final season of having our kids at home – our babes that couldn’t get enough of us for so many years, that have (seemingly overnight) grown into young people with their own thoughts and opinions, and NO time for us.
There is grief and worry that come along with this season of parenting. Often we are left feeling alone, like we are the only ones having a hard time. Feeling deep belonging to a community of like-minded parents seems hard to come by… The Living Joyful Courage membership IS that community.
We GET the intensity and whiplash of raising teens, from navigating mental health crises to substance use to school refusal and more… And we embrace the belief that there is hope on the other side.
Walk with us on this transformative path.
– Cari, parent
You get it all
Twice monthly group calls are designed to bring members together for learning and group coaching.
We meet the second Wednesday of the month, 5-7pm PST, for a workshop style class, diving into content that is generated by the group and focusing on personal growth and Positive Discipline skills.
We meet the fourth Wednesday of the month, 5-7pm PST, for a group coaching where members have space to bring their current challenge and get direct coaching that they can take and integrate into their lives immediately
These calls are rich with connection, learning and growth.
Participating in the group calls offers members practical strategies and insights that help foster healthy communication, set boundaries, and navigate the conflicts showing up in their homes.

6 week parenting course

Members will be invited to spend a chunk of time together twice over the course of the year through a virtual retreat. Guest speakers are invited in to provide meaningful, encouraging soul/self care to the parents.
Twice annually we will dig into books for continuing our journey of personal growth. When possible the author is invited to join us in our discussion about their book.

How will this change my life?
Feeling authentic connection and knowing we matter is at the heart of Positive Discipline, yes,
but it isn’t ONLY true for our kids.
Joining Living Joyful Courage will give YOU the opportunity to be seen and deeply listened to,
and to know WITHOUT A DOUBT that you matter.
You will nurture a confidence in not only your parenting,
but in all the domains of your life.
Right now you are feeling the tension of this season of parenting,
or you wouldn’t be here, checking this out.
Something feels out of alignment…
Maybe you are struggling with maintaining relationship with your teen.
Maybe you are navigating feelings of isolation or loneliness as your teens find a life outside of the family.
Maybe you aren’t sure how to find the “kindness and firmness” that seemed much easier to embody when they were younger and taking seemingly smaller risks?
The membership will support you in coming back to who you know you are as a parent.
But don’t wait too long – time is limited, and the teenage years are a pivotal time in your child’s development. Take action now to create a more joyful and connected family dynamic.

Frequently asked questions
Who is this membership a good fit for?
This membership is for anyone who identifies as a parent, with middle school aged kids through the teen years. This membership is for parents who are committed to positive parenting, but even more importantly, parents that desire a space for their own personal growth.
This membership is good for parents who long for the connection and support of a like minded community.
The current membership community includes parents with kids just entering the teen years, as well as parents with kids moving into young adulthood. Some of the challenges in the group included school refusal, eating disorders, anxiety and depression, screen time drama, chores and contributions, substance use, defiance and stuggles with maintaining connection. We are all facing challenges that are real for us, and this is a space that can support you in being with those challenges.
What is the underlying philosophy of this membership?
Living Joyful Courage has at its core, the values of Joyful Courage: personal growth, powerful relationship, and influential tools for designing the life you want.
This is a space from parents, and we will be talking about parenting our tweens and teens. The tools and strategies that will be shared align with the PD pillars of mutual respect, belonging and significance, trusting the process, and having the courage to be imperfect.
This is not a space that embraces punishing or rewarding behavior, instead, participants will be encouraged to be curious about their child’s behavior in a way that leads then to a clearer picture of the problem, looking through the lens of finding long term solutions.
More than anything else this membership is designed to help members recognize how they are influencing their current challenges, and invites a deeper practice of being more intentional with their own behavior, so as to influence the overall energy of their lives.

Will this work for me?
Let’s reframe this question to “will this membership be useful for the dynamic I am currently experiencing?”
The short answer is yes. Parents who join this membership, participate in the live sessions, use and practice the coaching and resources, will be able to make a significant impact on how they are experiencing the challenges they are facing with their family and in their life.
The long answer is also yes. AND, this may be a starting point for you. AND, the magic of this membership exists in how you implement what you learn and your willingness to try again and again and again.
