The teen years are tough.
And not only on our kids.
The teen years are really challenging on moms. 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.
– Cari, parent
You get it all
6 week parenting course
To kick off the year, all members will be invited to move through a 6 week parenting class to get the basics down and give us a foundation for growing together through the year – for some members this will be their first time through this class, for others it will be a refresher.
Twice monthly group calls are designed to offer members space to bring their current challenge and get direct coaching that they can take and integrate into their lives immediately.
You will receive weekly emails introducing you to the topics. Login and binge at your own pace. Learn along with your parenting partner.
Meet with Casey twice over the course of the year for a deep dive into your current challenges, a pep talk, or simply to connect around parenting teens with Positive Discipline.
Members will be invited to spend a chunk of time together once virtually, once in person*, that is designed to nurture and fill their mama souls.
* The live retreat will depend on the Covid-19 situation.
Three times over the course of the year we will dig into books for continuing our journey of personal growth.
While a member of Living Joyful Courage, mamas will have access to all past online summits, as well as an ever growing bank of content rich videos inspired by the needs of the community.
Discounts and first dibs
As an active member, you will be afforded 25% off all Joyful Courage offers – including one-on-one coaching packages, retreats, and workshops. Members will also get early bird access to registrations for new events.

You will nurture a confidence in not only your parenting, but in all the domains of your life.

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.

Frequently asked questions
Who is this membership a good fit for?
This membership is for anyone who identifies as a mom, with middle school aged kids through the teen years. This membership is for mamas who yes, are committed to positive parenting, but even more importantly, mamas that desire a space for their own personal growth.
This membership is good for mamas who long for the connection and support of a like minded community.
The 2021 membership community included mamas with kid just entering the teen years, as well as mamas 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, and 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 moms, 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, mamas 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 mamas 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.
What is the time commitment?
You design your adventure here – you are welcome to use the membership however feels good to you. The more you dive in, the greater the impact the work will have on your family. But remember, everything is optional.

- Members are encouraged to make it to both monthly calls, AND life happens, so if one call a month fits better for you, that is a-ok! We are here to support you however that works FOR you.
- The community forum is open 24/7 and can be used as it suits you.
- Virtual retreats will run 3 hours, the live retreat will be over two days in the fall of 2022
When will the live calls take place?
Coaching calls will take place monthly the second and fourth Wednesday of the month, 5-7 pm PDT/8-10 pm EDT.
Will the live calls be recorded?
Yes! All of the coaching calls will be recorded and archived, creating a bank of resources to come back to when members are looking for support around a specific topic.
What if I want to cancel my membership?
The expectation when you sign up is that you are committing to be a part of the membership for a full year. Life is unpredictable, and this community is designed to walk with you through the ebbs AND the flows.
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. Mamas 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.
Who is this program NOT a good fit for?
This program is not designed for mamas who are in the season of parenting babies, toddlers or preschoolers. This membership is also not designed for parents of school ages kids.
This membership is for parents of middle school kids and older – 11+ years old.
This program is not for moms who are unwilling to look at their own contribution to the struggles and discouragement they are finding themselves in.
This program is not for moms who are attached to laying down the law, issuing punishments, using rewards/bribes, or holding a belief that tweens/teens should be obedient towards adults, no questions asked.
