Parenting for the Season You’re In
Parenting teens with Positive Discipline is a program for parents of adolescents 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 problem solving. Most importantly, this community is about experiencing more joy on the parenting journey.
We keep it very real in this class – no topic is off limits. Participants are willing to get vulnerable and share about the mental health struggles, substance use, school challenges and more. The space created in this class is confidential, safe and supportive. The content centers on how to BE WITH the rough terrain of the tween and teen years, while centering the relationship we have with our kids and meeting them where they’re at – with acceptance and curiosity.
Join so many other parents in finding their Joyful Courage as we walk the sometime mild, sometimes wild parenting path. No matter the season of parenting you are in today, this program is designed to give you what you need to be the parent you want to be.
Kids don’t come with an instruction manual.
Wouldn’t it be so nice if they did?
We buy the books, read the blogs, listen to the podcasts and consume the content, looking for answers and the elusive formula that is going to help us with this wild ride of parenting…
And sometimes it isn’t enough.
The experts all tell you that they have the process, the 4 steps, that they hold the secret to a happy, easy-breezy family life.
What we need more of are community spaces that allow us to share and be held in the experience we are having. This class offer that and so much more. Parents get to step into their teens shows, learn how to get under the surface of behavior, and create and the encouraging environment their young people need during this time of their life.
What you don’t often hear is that parenting is WORK. That there are NO easy answers. There are ages and stages, yes, but each family has their own unique dynamic, and each parent comes with their own flavor of experience and beliefs that inform them as they move through the parenting journey. This class exists to support YOU in recognizing and designing the dynamic that works for YOUR family.
All classes are held via Zoom. Each series includes 6 classes and one follow up class 4-6 weeks later. Classes are held on Tuesdays from 10am – 12pm PST/ 1pm – 3pm EST. Click on the register buttons above to see the exact class dates.

Dr. Jane Nelsen’s Positive Discipline parent education is based on the theories of psychologists Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs. Positive Discipline helps your child feel a sense of significance and belonging through learning important life skills of empowerment, self-reliance and cooperation. This parenting style encourages kindness and firmness at the same time.
Kindness is the way we interact and connect with our children, honoring their dignity and respecting their needs.
Firmness is the way we respect ourselves and the needs of the situation, as well as following through with what we say we are going to do.
