Parenting teens with Positive Discipline
an audio summit hosted by the Joyful Courage podcast
Self-paced audio summit
Here is the offer I have created for you
A curated navigation system to help you be the most prepared,
grounded and even thriving parent during this very special season/time in your child’s life.
I love my teenagers, AND I am finding this season of parenting challenging in
whole new ways. Just about ALL of the parents I speak to are too.
Do you feel you need adult-size water wings to ride the wave of parenting teens?
As I stumbled through the first few years with my teen, I found that the resources I needed weren’t available to me. So I reached out to my community. I connected with some of my favorite Positive Discipline mentors and trainers who also had experience with parenting through the teen years.
They were generous enough to deep dive in conversation with me.
And deep we went.
This summit includes fifteen interviews! I zeroed in on topics that were coming up in the community, including:
- Screens, sex, body image, risky behavior
- Deepening our understanding of this time of life, for both your teen and you, as a parent
- Strategies for maintaining and nurturing your relationship
- Settling in when it gets messy
- Doing our work to get out of their way
