Cultivating Positive Discipline for Children
Jane Nelsen and Jeff Goelitz
Jane Nelsen’s Positive Discipline model, “designed to teach young people to become responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their communities,” has been successful in public, private and religious schools across the country.
In this webinar, Nelsen discusses how discipline can be effective when it employs mutual respect, rather than punishment. The mother of seven, coaches parents and teachers to be firm and kind, so children, from 3-year-olds to rebellious teenagers, “can learn creative cooperation and self-discipline with no loss of dignity.”
Parents, educators and mental health specialists among others who care for children will take away valuable tools, ideas and strategies from this hourlong webinar. After many years of work with children, parents and educators, Nelsen has developed invaluable insights on spoiled children, bullying, school violence, power struggles, lack of cooperation, backtalk and disrespect.
