Positive discipline is an overarching philosophy that helps a child develop a conscience guided by their own internal discipline and compassion for others. When we focus on Guiding our children for Growth, we can honor their drive to explore and learn about their world AND honor our need to keep them safe and learn how to act in increasingly “pro-social” ways.
Join us as we help make Parenting Sweet! Come nourish your parenting knowledge and feel encouraged to use effective parenting skills to fit your needs.
Our discussion this week will include:
• What is positive discipline, and why it’s important
• The goal of positive discipline
• Establishing boundaries
• The dangers of traditional discipline
We hope you’ll join us at the Parenting Sweet!
