on our upcoming workshop

Do you have challenges with whining, temper tantrums, power struggles, not listening? Would you like your children to develop self-discipline, responsibility, resiliency, accountability, and self-confidence?

Recent research tells us that children are hardwired from birth to connect with others, and that children who feel a sense of connection to their community, family, and school are less likely to misbehave. To be successful, contributing members of their community, children must learn necessary social and life skills. Positive Discipline is a program developed by Dr. Jane Nelsen designed to teach young people to become responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their communities. Positive Discipline teaches important social and life skills in a manner that is deeply respectful and encouraging for both children and adults.

These workshops contain many Positive Discipline Tools that can be life changing for parents. Parent will have an opportunities to participate in experiential activities that help them get into the child's world for a deeper understanding of what works and what doesn't work.
