This course gives you the framework of Positive Discipline, based on the theories of psychologists Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs, and tools from the latest social neuroscience to use when caring for young children (toddlers & preschoolers).

 

It reminds us to ask:

 

Am I connecting?

Am I inviting capability?

Am I teaching?

How am I modeling?

What do they need to learn?

It’s the bridge that gets you from the challenges now to the skills they need when they are 25 years old. What does it look like to raise remarkable humans?

 

We show you how to invite cooperation, build strong relationships and find the joy and humor in everyday moments.

 

The result? Capable, confident and remarkable kids (and adults).

"It is no exaggeration to say that Positive Discipline has been a game-changer for me as a nanny. Instead of me asking my nanny families for guidance with discipline, my nanny families now come to me seeking my advice & help because they see how well Positive Discipline works."

— Danielle T.

Positive Discipline

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

Sproutable's online Introduction to Positive Discipline series is an officially licensed Positive Discipline product.
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.

Science! (is awesome)

  

Brain Science    Language        Sensory         Social/Emotional

Gross Motor      Fine Motor      Adaptive       Executive Function  

We do the research. That's right. We only bring you information based on the latest research in early childhood development. This is NOT your Aunt Flo's opinions on child-rearing from the 1940's.

 

Research-backed information 

curated for the modern nanny.

Without understanding the science it is hard to change habits. It gives you the foundation to understand your child’s brain development. What can they do or understand at this age? What are age-appropriate options? This is where we get super geeky - because we really love the science! 

The Whole Picture

We take a challenge (e.g. tantrums). We break down why the behavior might be happening. Then, give you Positive Discipline tools and the science behind why it works, so you can put into practice right away.
Learning Opportunities
Teaching how to calm down
Positive Discipline Tools
Positive Time Out Space
Tantrums
Research-backed Tips
Validating feelings tells the amygdala part of the brain to send the message
"I am safe" and helps your child calm down faster. 
Words to use
"That hurt when you fell down."
 
Words NOT to Use
"You're fine. That doesn't hurt"
