Positive Discipline Parenting Way

November 7, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm CST
Central Park Common, 706 #2 Duchess Street
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada
+ Google Map

Positive Discipline begins at birth and lasts a lifetime. That’s right, it’s never too early or too late to use Positive Discipline, because it is based on mutually respectful relationships in which you respect your child and you respect yourself.

With Positive Discipline, the emphasis is on a balance of firmness and kindness, and on providing respect for both adults and children. Positive Discipline, because it is neither permissive nor punitive, rings hope, increased skills, and love to your family.

Five Criteria for Positive Discipline:

Is Kind and Firm at the same time. (Respectful and encouraging)
Helps children feel a sense of Belonging and Significance. (Connection)
Is Effective Long-Term. (Punishment works short term, but has negative long-term results.)
Teaches valuable Social and Life Skills for good character. (Respect, concern for others, problem-solving, accountability, contribution, cooperation)
Invites children to discover how Capable they are and to use their personal power in constructive ways.
Class Information:

6 weeks in length and 1 hour and 30 minutes. Each week we will discuss tools and concepts related to Positive Discipline, participate in experiential activities and parents helping parents problem solve. Below is an outline of what parents can expect each week. Please note that these weekly topics may change to reflect the needs of a families in our classes:
