Parents will learn how to think through 4 steps that will help them resolve conflict in a way that teaches, rather than punishes, their children. This problem-solving skill can be applied in any situation, not just the challenging ones.
The challenge of parenting is enormous – to take the hand of a brand-new human being and guide her toward adulthood, teaching her all she needs to know to have a happy, successful life. There are times in all parents’ lives when it seems overwhelming and we may lose control of our emotions, or feel helpless, or resort to shouting.
There is another way. “Discipline” actually means “teaching.” Teaching is based on setting goals and finding solutions to challenges. “Positive discipline” is non-violent and respects the child as a learner. It is an approach to teaching that helps children succeed, gives them information, and supports their growth.
