What is Positive Discipline?
We incorporate Dr. Jane Nelsen’s Positive Discipline parent education 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 skills of empowerment, self-reliance and cooperation. This parenting style encourages kindness and firmness at the same time.
Sproutable’s online courses are officially licensed Positive Discipline products.
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.
