Free! Parenting the Positive Discipline Way series
Waypoint Family Resource Center is hosting a Free 6 session parenting course titled ‘Parenting the Positive Discipline Way’
Have you found yourself disciplining your child and thinking “There has to be a better way”? Have you ever yelled at or spanked out of exasperation or in an effort to modify your child’s behavior?
The Positive Discipline Model is founded on mutual respect and teaches parents and educators to use kindness and firmness at the same time.
Research shows that children have an intense desire to feel connected and contribute; therefore, young people who have a strong sense of connection are less likely to exhibit misbehavior in school and at home. The Positive Discipline program was developed by Dr. Jane Nelsen and is designed to teach young people to become responsible, respectful, and resourceful members of their communities.
The tools and concepts of Positive Discipline that will be discussed in this course include:
- Mutual respect
- Identifying the belief behind the behavior
- Effective communication and problem solving skills
- Discipline that teaches
- Focus on solutions instead of punishment
- Using encouragement instead of praise
Classes run Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-5pm; Feb 13, 15, 20, 22, 27 and March 1
