Ready to get real?
The Parenting Teens With Positive Discipline Audio Summit is a deep dive into the messiness of parenting through the teen years and beyond. Each of the featured guests speaks candidly from both their wisdom as parent educators, as well as their real life experience of raising their own teens.
Summit will be live January 28th - February 1st
I know how it is to be in the throes of parenting teens.
The emotional roller coaster - the moments of lightness and love that can so quickly turn into stomping feet and slamming doors. What is that all about? I am often left wondering, what exactly did I DO to elicit that response??
Not to mention the time alone we spend worrying about their future - Will they experiment with drugs? ARE they experimenting with drugs? What about vapes? Does she have an eating disorder? Is he getting the message about how to treat their crushes and consent? What are they missing with all this screen time? How can I get them to contribute? DON'T GET PREGNANT!!
Not to mention, how can I get them to listen? What's with the moods? Is this a mental health thing? What IS teen brain development? Why don't they like me anymore....?
I mean, it is crazy making - I GET IT.
And when I look out into the world for help, I can't find what I need. I am devoted to Positive Discipline. I believe in the power of relationship and learning from mistakes, that kids do better when they feel better, in co-creating agreements and guidelines. And yet.... GAH!!! Teenagers are a whole different situation!!
I am with you.
This is why I reached out to my community of Positive Discipline Educators, Trainers and Lead Trainers to join me in conversation about the MESSINESS of parenting teens while staying as true as we can to Positive Discipline.
The result of these conversations is this audio summit.
I am so excited!!
For real. I am so excited, so honored and so PROUD of the interviews I will be sharing with all the parents who register. And I really don't want YOU to miss out.
The way that it works is starting January 28th I will send you daily emails with a link to access that days interviews. Each day will build from the previous. By Friday, you will have all the interviews. The interviews are yours, for free (did I mention that?), through the weekend.
But wait, I'm busy!!
Yup, I totally get that, I will have the whole summit packaged as a bundle to be purchased for lifetime access starting February 4th. You will get to buy all of the interviews to return to over and over again, forever and always.
What if I can't listen to all of the interviews?
No worries! Each and every interviews stands alone in it's wisdom and empowerment for parents. Ideally, listening from start to finish will get you the deepest learning, AND there is value in whatever you are able to get in. And like I mentioned above, the whole summit will be yours to purchase starting February 4th.
But I'm not a parent of a teen...
As anyone with a teen can say, you don't really know what it will be like until you KNOW - kinda like before that first baby came and you thought you knew what it would be like to have a baby?? Yeah, same is true (at least in my experience) with having a teen.
That being said, all are welcome to register for the teen summit, just know that they context of each and every interview is raising teenagers.
And feel free (pretty please) to pass along the news that the summit is happening. You can click here to get directly to my FB post about it and share from there on your social media.

Meet the guests:
Each of the Parenting Teen’s with Positive Discipline guests are Certified Positive Discipline Educators, Trainers or Lead Trainers, certified through the Positive Discipline Association. This summit is designed to give participants a deeper understanding of the theory behind Positive Discipline, and practical application tools for practicing PD with your teenagers.
Every parent, child and home environment is unique and dynamic, even as much of the experience of raising teenagers is collective. This summit seeks to highlight the places we can focus on to give our teens maximum opportunity to feel loved, supported and connected to the adults in their lives, and know that they matter deeply.
The interviews you will hear:
Monday is all about building some foundation and a better understanding of our teen’s experience.
Tuesday continues to offer some theory and background, and we begin to explore challenges like our teen’s having different goals than we do, and navigating risky behavior.
Wednesday the topics get even more focused, when we take a look at curfews, helping out at home, and considering the mental health of the teens we love.
Thursday the summit takes us into our own beliefs about education, how we can be ever more aware of screen use, and things to think about when support our teens through big transitions.
And finally, Friday offers us the opportunity to get real about sex, dating, body image and staying connected through it all! I will also offer a wrap up of the summit and steps you can take moving forward.
