This approach is based on the work of psychologist Alfred Adler and is a respected and proven method in raising cooperative, responsible children. Adler's concepts about children have been presented in many books by several authors. We have chosen to use the Positive Discipline series by Jane Nelsen, Ed.D, distinguished psychologist and educator. Her parenting book Positive Discipline, originally published in 1981 has remained a classic guide for helping children develop self-discipline, responsibility, cooperation and problem solving abilities. Along with co-authors, Ms. Nelsen has written over a dozen books focusing on implementing positive discipline for children of all ages

We use the Positive Discipline books because:
Positive Discipline books continue to be updated and revised
Positive Discipline uses examples that are current with today's culture and problems
Positive Discipline promotes discipline that focuses on solutions rather than logical consequences
Positive Discipline challenges the idea that children need to feel bad to do better
Positive Discipline redefines time-outs as positive rather than punitive
Positive Discipline emphasizes kind and firm discipline without being permissive
Positive Discipline is non-punitive, non-violent principles are ideal for domestic violence issues
Positive Discipline emphasizes understanding why adults are responsible for many behavior problems
Positive Discipline gives us resources to enhance our online classes with audio and video
Positive Discipline Jane Nelson, Ed.D. continues to write, lecture and present workshops
