    Linda is a Certified Positive Discipline Trainer and a member of the PDA since 2008. She has a teen-aged son who accuses her of "doing Positive Discipline experiments" on him.  She is sure he feels that way because there are many Positive Discipline tools that are respectful and kind without being punitive or permissive -- and she has tried almost all of them!  She has facilitated adult learning for more than 25 years in the corporate and non-profit worlds. She says, “I love sharing what I've learned with others.”

    3. It is effective long term and considers what the child is thinking, feeling, deciding, and learning.
    4. It teaches important social and life skills: respect, concern for others, problem solving, and cooperation, as well as the skills to contribute to the home, school, or larger community.

    • Gain knowledge of research-based, effective tools and techniques for teaching parents how to use discipline that is kind and firm at the same time, neither punitive nor permissive.
    • Practice facilitating a parenting class as a non-expert.
