Free 7-week Positive Discipline Parenting Course (Lynnwood)

Positive Discipline 7-Week Series

Do you think raising kids today is a lot different than when you were a child or when your parents were children? Well, you’re right. Role models have changed since the 1950’s where children were often “seen but not heard.”

Positive Discipline effectiveness extends to any child from the “terrible twos” to a “defiant teen” so they can be supported in becoming respectful, cooperative, and responsible. This is an opportunity to practice for the skills necessary to feel more confident on the parenting arena.

  • Continue to deal with the same misbehavior over and over,
  • Have concern that your children are out of control,
  • Feel that parenting is too much work, or
  • You are interested in putting an effective, practical parenting approach to work in your family

Positive Discipline will help you (among many other things):

  • Create an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect in your home
  • Minimize sibling rivalry
  • Reduce power struggles (such as homework, screen time, chores, etc.)
  • Understand the belief behind the behavior
  • Help children achieve self-discipline and problem-solving skills
  • Be more effective as a parent and have fun in the process

Participants will learn to apply the principles and tools of Positive Discipline, an Adlerian research-based philosophy, to working with groups of young children. They will also gain a deeper understanding of how young children learn, the importance of belonging and social and emotional learning, and how best to teach those skills in a classroom or care setting. Participants will earn recognition as Certified Positive Discipline Early Childhood Educators and will learn to:

  1. Create a classroom or care setting where children can develop a sense of belonging and significance based on the importance of contribution and mutual respect.
  2. Understand how young children learn and how to adapt teaching to the needs of this age group.
  3. Foster essential social and emotional skills to support development and school readiness and to understand behavior and how to guide it in groups of young children.
  4. Teach the essential skills for developmentally appropriate participation in class meetings.
  5. Learn Positive Discipline and Adlerian concepts for use in the classroom, preschool community, and with parents.
