Episode 22: Showing Up “Heartfully” for Our Teens with Casey O’Roarty
Casey O’Roarty, Positive Discipline Lead Trainer and Coach joins me on The Heartful Parent Podcast today, and I’m thrilled to have her here!
Casey’s work encourages parents of teenagers to discover the purpose of their journey, while also providing them with tools and a shift of mindset that allows them to deepen their relationships with themselves and their families.
Casey and I agree that our purpose is to foster open, heartful connection with our teens and young adult children. Casey and I dig into what to do, as parents, when our teens or young adult children are making choices we don’t like, are unsafe or dangerous, or have consequences they didn’t anticipate. It truly isn’t about preventing them from making such choices (it’s not possible!), but how to make sure they come to us when they do and help them think critically and problem-solve in these situations.
Casey gives tips on how to “stay deep” in curiosity, what questions to ask and not to ask. She also guides us to come from a place of neutral and how to practice this skill before we need it.
