Positive Discipline For Positive Caregivers

Positive Discipline is proactive rather than reactive! Are you ready to work along side your child to get to the root of their behavior and use it as a learning opportunity? Positive Discipline is a long-term investment, not only in our relationship with our child, but also in our child’s entire life. This online, self-paced class walks you through the ins and outs of Positive Discipline, leaving you with many new tools to successfully work with your child. The class consists of videos, PowerPoint slides with notes, handouts, articles, and printable posters to support all learning styles. It is taught by Erin Taylor who is a certified parent and family coach with her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology.
