For Parent Educators

Teaching Parenting the Positive Discipline Way (developed by Lynn Lott and Jane Nelsen) is a research-based parent education program that provides a step-by-step approach to starting and leading experientially based parenting groups.

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.

For Classroom Educators

Positive Discipline in the Classroom (developed by Jane Nelsen and Lynn Lott) is a research-based classroom management program that empowers teachers with skills to build their students’ sense of community, prepare them for successful living, and increase academic achievement. Experiential learning methods give you skills to help students practice better cooperation, social skills, self-direction, responsibility, and mutual respect in the classroom. Positive Discipline in the Classroom materials go hand in hand with the Positive Discipline parent education program that can be taught at your school to increase the parent-school connection.

Teachers, Administrators, Professional Development Personnel, Counselors, community representatives, and anyone who works with young people in a school will benefit from this training.

For Early Childhood Educators

Positive Discipline for Early Childhood Educators (developed by Jane Nelsen, Cheryl Erwin, and Steven Foster) is designed for early childhood educators, teachers, and caregivers who work with children from birth to six years of age.

Participants will learn to apply the principles and tools of Positive Discipline, an Adlerian research-based philosophy, to working with groups of young children. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how young children learn, the importance of belonging and social and emotional learning, and how to best teach those skills in a classroom or care setting.
