Joyful Courage offers Positive Discipline parenting classes and teacher trainings all over the Snohomish and north King County area as well as to a wider ONLINE community. Joyful Courage is a company that is all about helping grown-ups encourage the children in their lives and build stronger relationships. We see encouragement as providing opportunities for children to develop the following perceptions:
"I am capable"
"I can contribute"
"I can use my personal power in useful ways to improve my life and the lives of others"
When children have these perceptions of themselves, not only is their behavior more cooperative at home, but they are ready to learn at school. The root word of "encourage" is "courage". We see courage as being your best self in any circumstance. So to encourage children is really to create the space from them to be their best selves!
Joyful Courage provides classes and workshops for parents and teachers who are interested in taking a new look at behavior. We have a deep respect for the work of both parents and teachers, and offer tools that allow them to connect deeper with the kids in their lives.
