Positive Discipline is a program developed by Dr. Jane Nelsen. It is based on the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs. It is designed to teach young people to become responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their communities. Positive Discipline teaches important social, emotional, and life skills in a manner that is deeply respectful and encouraging for both children and adults. Parents, teachers, and childcare providers can work together to provide a secure, consistent environment for children.
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. To be successful, contributing members of their community, children must learn necessary social and life skills. Positive Discipline is based on the understanding that discipline must be taught and that discipline teaches.
