    Eps 336: Solo show Helping Our Teens Feel Seen

    Eps 336: Solo show Helping Our Teens Feel Seen

    Today I am back with a FRESH solo show for you! I dig into the phrase "I believe you" as I understand it from Dr. Becky Kennedy's work. What would have happened if our parents had said that to us as teens? What could it open up in our relationship with our OWN teens if we are willing to say it to them?
    Enjoy!

    Revisiting Eps 259: "Is this Positive Discipline?"

    I am revisiting Eps 259, exploring the question, "is this Positive Discipline?" Parents in the trenches of naviagating challenging behavior often wonder if what they are doing fits under the PD umbrella. I tease this apart for you with the intention of offering listeners a deeper understanding and encouragement to support them in the Positive Discipline practice.

This podcast is a gem!

I discovered this podcast via a Positive Discipline FB group and it has been...dare I say, life changing. My kids are 11 and 13, and I can feel myself being a better parent to them thanks to this podcast. It has lead to some incredible interactions with my kids, and given me a mindset to lean on when I’m in a new and unexpected (or completely expected!) situations with them. It has helped me remember my role as a parent: to love them unconditionally and to accompany them on their journey to becoming healthy, functional adults, and what that accompaniment looks like (hint: it doesn’t look like control!) It helps me start each interaction with my kids with love, appreciation, respect and trust - and they can feel it and have shown it back to me. I am so happy to have discovered this at this precipice of teen-ness (and wish I had heard it earlier for my 13 year old) because I can now see mistakes I was barreling towards making, and thankfully with this wisdom I can *hopefully* avoid stepping right into them. Thank you Casey for everything you teach me!

Show notes

Good show but I don’t like having to go to the website to see show notes. Please put a quick summary about what each show is about. It’s annoying that we have no idea what the show covers and if we want to find out, we have to go to the website. ****I noticed you added show notes to the latest episodes! Thank you!!!****

Excellent, wise, vulnerable, honest—so helpful

I’ve listened to JC for years off and on. My oldest is the age of Casey’s youngest and there have been times when I listened to some episodes repeatedly, like a meditation on letting go of control and sitting with what is. I have a closer less friction filled relationship with my kids as a result.
