Positive Discipline comes from the theories of Alfred Adler, M.D. and Rudolf Dreikurs, M.D., early pioneers of “Individual Psychology,” adapted for child guidance by world-renowned authors, Jane Nelsen, Ed.D. and Lynn Lott, MFT. The teachings are filled with non-punitive, non-permissive, respectful methods that incorporate kindness and firmness, encourage a child’s “self-discipline” through various tools such as family meetings, encouragement, learning from mistakes with dignity intact, etc., helping parents get to the core of their child’s misbehavior, and bringing more joy into the home.
Through experiential learning, Positive Discipline help adults learn with their “heart” as well their “head” in an engaging, supportive way. The activities used help us “see the world through the child’s eyes,” allowing adults to gain immediate insight into problem behavior and effective solutions.
