Become a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator

Research has demonstrated the importance of social and emotional learning, even above academics. Positive Discipline parenting tools teach valuable social and life skills without using any form of punishment, rewards, praise, permissiveness and even logical consequences—at least hardly ever.

Participants will:

  • Learn research based effective tools and techniques for teaching parents how to use discipline that is kind and firm at the same time (non-punitive non-permissive).

  • Learn how to use materials and activities in group settings, parenting classes and individual work with families.

  • Gain practice with experiential exercises for “getting into the child’s work” to understand the “belief behind behavior” in order to motivate change.
