PARENTING WITH POSITIVE DISCIPLINE

Let us bring the fun to you! Host a private Positive Discipline Workshop for your personal parent community in the comfort of your home, business, or your child's school.  Minimum attendance required is 12 people.

Courses are designed to give parents the opportunity to begin to really understand the root cause of their child’s behavior as well as what role they play in it.  The class will provide parents with valuable tools they can use to build mutually respectful relationships so that the can effectively problem solve issues as they arise.  

 

About The Course

Positive Discipline Parent Classes are a unique experiential learning experience, with role-play and group discussions which add to the depth of the learning. Parents receive the book, Positive Discipline for Today's Busy (& Overwhelmed) Parent, and are encouraged to complete the assigned readings throughout the class. The instructor also shares supplemental handouts and follow up emails with participants. This is an extremely powerful experience for participants, and many sign up to go through the course multiple times.

 

Inside the course you will learn:

  • WHY CHILDREN MISBEHAVE

  • HOW TO AVOID pampering, permissive, and punitive parenting methods (that only work in the short-term)

  • Use methods to teach important character and  life skills

  • Why stickers, rewards, bribes, prizes, punishment, yelling, and spanking are not effective

  • Positive time out strategies that teach self-regulation

  • To avoid power struggles and encourage cooperation

  • To develop a greater understanding of your child’s “unique” temperament

  • To effectively respond to “misbehavior”

  • To understand sibling dynamics • And much more!

 
 

We offer classes for parents of children of all ages and stages of development!

Preschool

Caring for young children is one of the most challenging tasks an adult will ever face. No matter how much you love your child, there will be moments filled with frustration, anger, and even desperation. There will also be questions: Why does my four-year-old deliberately lie to me? Why won't my three-year-old listen to me? Should I ever spank my preschooler when she is disobedient? Positive Discipline for Preschoolers will teach you how to use methods to raise a child who is responsible, respectful, and resourceful.

Primary

The key to positive discipline is not punishment, but mutual respect. Parents can be both firm and kind, so that children can learn creative cooperation and self-discipline with no loss of dignity. We teach important social and life skills in a manner that is deeply respectful and encouraging for both children and adults.
