Positive Discipline – Parent Workshop

Topic: Positive Discipline

When: January 28, 2015

Where: ICEP Library

Time: 9:00 a.m.

Guest Speaker

  • Mutual respect. Adults model firmness by respecting themselves and the needs of the     situation, and kindness by respecting the needs of the child.
  • Identifying the belief behind the behavior. Effective discipline recognizes the reasons       kids do what they do and works to change those beliefs, rather than merely attempting     to change behavior.
  • Effective communication and problem solving skills.
  • Discipline that teaches (and is neither permissive nor punitive).
  • Focusing on solutions instead of punishment.
  • Encouragement (instead of praise). Encouragement notices effort and improvement,       not just success, and builds long-term self-esteem and empowerment.
