Back in the year 2000, I had a 7 year old son and a 4 year old daughter and I enrolled in “Teaching Parenting the Positive Discipline Way.” The training began at 9am and by 11am, I knew I had found a new love in life, Positive Discipline parenting workshops taught with experiential learning activities. I had read and re-read Jane Nelsen’s book, Positive Discipline book three times, but I learned so much more about Positive Discipline ideas in those two days because of the active learning approach that was used.
Positive Discipline workshops are different from traditional “classes” where the teacher stands in front
of the class and explains ideas. Positive Discipline workshops don’t rely on power point slides, lectures or videos. Instead a Positive Discipline Parent Educator facilitates activities and helps the group process what they experienced and learned. – Kelly
Scroll down a little to see the helpful Positive Discipline teaching tools that are included with this two day workshop:
- Teaching Parenting the Positive Discipline Way Manual – A book of class outlines, activities and tips for planning and carrying out parent workshops.
- Positive Discipline book by Jane Nelsen
- A Set of Positive Discipline Parenting Tool Cards
UPDATE – EXTRA LEARNING OPPORTUNITY ON OCTOBER 5: I’ve added an optional piece to this training. On Wednesday evening, the night before the 2-day training, I will offer a live parenting workshop for parents from the community so you can see an example of what it looks like to use the Positive Discipline Curriculum with parents. I’ll demonstrate activities that are not included in the 2-day training so if you come to this event (which is totally free to all) then you’ll get an opportunity for some extra learning before the workshop even starts! The live event will be from 7-8:30 pm.
Way or go ahead and reserve your space with the early bird rate now. If you have questions, e-mail me at KellyPfeifferTHINKitTHROUGH@gmail.com. I’ll be happy to arrange a time to speak with you on the phone and answer any questions you have. -Kelly
