Positive Discipline

What is Positive Discipline? 

Positive Discipline is a program designed to teach young people to become responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their communities. Based on the best selling Positive Discipline books by Dr. Jane Nelsen, Lynn Lott, Cheryl Erwin, Kate Ortolano, Mary Hughes, Mike Brock, Lisa Larson and others, it teaches important social and life skills in a manner that is deeply respectful and encouraging for both children and adults (including parents, teachers, childcare providers, youth workers, and others).

Parenting the Positive Discipline Way is for parents (and early childhood educators) looking for long-term parenting skills that will encourage children to think for themselves, become more responsible and have a greater respect for themselves and others.  The teachings of Positive Discipline are filled with non-punitive, respectful methods that incorporate kindness and firmness to get to the core of a child’s misbehavior, bringing joy and a sense of accomplishment.
