January 8, 2024, marks 20 years of the Positive Discipline Association as a non-profit organization. We will be celebrating throughout the year with a variety of projects and online and in-person events that you can join with a special member discount.

As we reach this milestone, we want to thank all our current and past members for your continued support and for allowing us to continue with our mission these past 20 years. Your contributions and active participation with the PDA have left and continues to leave a big mark in our communities around the world! Together, we can continue to create a more peaceful world by teaching Adlerian social and emotional life skills for respectful relationships.

It is our greatest hope that the Positive Discipline / Adlerian principles, when applied in our homes, schools, communities, and businesses, can transform our world, moving from power over to the power of connection and belonging!


The Positive Discipline Association especially wishes to honor Jane Nelsen and Lynn Lott who developed the Positive Discipline experiential learning model.
