Positive Discipline is a program based on the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs, and is designed to teach children to become responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their communities. Based on the best-selling Positive Discipline books by Dr. Jane Nelsen and co-authors Lynn Lott, Cheryl Erwin and others, Positive Discipline teaches important social and life skills in a manner that is deeply respectful and encouraging for both children and adults (including parents, teachers, childcare providers, youth workers, and support staff). Recent research tells us that children are “hardwired” from birth to connect with others, and that children who feel a sense of connection to their community, family, and school are less likely to misbehave and focus more on learning. To be successful contributing members of their community, children must learn necessary social and life skills.
