What is Positive Discipline

My Journey with Positive Disicpline

I started my journey into Positive Discipline when my son (now a teen diagnosed with autism, ADHD, and anxiety) was just a toddler. I read the books and implemented tools that I felt were important, and they worked well to help me curb tantrums, build autonomy in my son, and create boundaries. I was far from the perfect parents, but I took it day by day. I soon became a mother of two under 3, and when my daughter was five days old, my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I felt out of control in my life. I dug deeper into Positive Discipline (that and crochet!) to ensure I kept my parenting balanced and not reactive to my deep sadness. When my daughter was almost a year old, and many friends asked me, "How do you do it all?" and being told, "Show me how!" I decided to train to become a certified instructor. I also ran an in-home daycare at the time - "How perfect!" I thought, "I could start offering classes to my parents as soon as this is complete!" Once I was done, I started working on workshops. On my birthday in 2013, I was booked for a mini session with a PTA, "What is Positive Discipline?" I won't lie, I fumbled a lot, but it was a learning and growing experience. 

Since then, I have helped countless parents navigate everyday childhood development issues, such as tantrums, pickiness, defiance, and so much more. In addition, I have helped parents set up and navigate when their children have been diagnosed with special needs. Being a special needs mom of two and having years of practice as an educator, I am confident I can help create a plan with your family and with Positive Discipline. 

 

Most of these parents have come to me with neglectful or abusive backgrounds looking to start over with a blank slate - needing a more gentle approach to parenting. Through a class or one-on-one coaching, we use techniques from Positive Discipline and help create a path for parents that's easy to understand and navigate. Sometimes through additional coaching, we will build self-esteem for the parent while overcoming past traumas; sometimes, this happens alongside the help of a licensed mental health professional. 

Through everything, Positive Discipline helps parents and children grow healthy skills, self-esteem, autonomy, and healthy boundaries together.

What is Positive Discipline?

Positive Discipline is formed from the psychological works of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs, formed in the 1920's and 1930's later coined "Positive Discipline" by Jane Nelson and Lynn Lott.
