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 encourage a child’s “self-discipline” through tools such as understanding the “belief behind the behavior,” holding family and class meetings, learning from mistakes with dignity intact, and many more.
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.
