“This course has given me a new outlook on how to communicate more effectively with kids. The videos give real-life examples that are relatable, the readings are very informative and I learned so many new things from each section in the course. I would highly recommend it to any professional nanny, especially those working with toddlers and preschoolers.”

What is Positive Discipline?

Positive Discipline

Dr. Jane Nelsen’s Positive Discipline parent education is based on the theories of psychologists Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs. Positive Discipline helps your child feel a sense of significance and belonging through learning important life skills of empowerment, self-reliance and cooperation. This parenting style encourages kindness and firmness at the same time.

Positive Discipline logo

Kindness is the way we interact and connect with our children, honoring their dignity and respecting their needs.

Firmness is the way we respect ourselves and the needs of the situation, as well as following through with what we say we are going to do.
