Dalton’s parenting classes are helping me break old habits so that I can stop undermining my son by micromanaging him, and instead, raise a compassionate, responsible and independent man who will help shape a better society.”

Positive Discipline 正向教養 (Bellevue)(in Mandarin Chinese)

**Update as of mid March:  This Positive Discipline Course in Mandarin-Chinese has been postponed toward later of this FALL semester, estimated after late September, 2020, despite Tzu-Chi Academy Seattle School teaches “Traditional Mandarin-Chinese” and most Tzu-Chi student families are from Taiwan (versus to the “Simplified Chinese” what is been used solely in China,  ), and the fact that none of the signed-up participants are from Wuhan, China.  Please contact us if you or your client is interested in participating this workshop in this Spring quarter.**  

**3/15/2020 特別通知:  配合杜絕本地疫情擴大風險(目前感染擴散主要集中於高齡高危族群, 諸如安養中心等場所) 之防疫考量,  本協會與慈濟中文學校決定將本次正向教養課程順延至預計今年秋季開學的下一個學年度, 敬請見諒, 共體時艱.

**1/31/2020 特別通知:  雖然慈濟中文學校是一所教授繁體中文的學校, 跟中國境內使用、教授之簡體中文多有差異, 且前來學習繁體中文的學生家長們也沒有從中國武漢移民到本地的; 配合時情與學生家長的意願, 以減少焦慮與恐慌, 本次中文正向教養課程延期到三月底以後開課.  如有相關報名問題, 請與我們聯絡, 聯絡方式如下段所示.**


 

Sponsored by Puget Sound Adlerian Society through private funding, this is a 6-week, 14-hour, Adlerian-based experiential course for parents who hope to create more cooperative, healthful, and joyful relationships with children.  Teachers, grandparents, caregivers, counselors, and others who live or work with children also find this course immensely helpful.

This course is co-sponsored by Tzu-Chi Academy Seattle, and is most helpful for people who live or work with children aged 2-12, and/or teens.

Course Duration: 2/8/2020 through 3/21/2020 (skip 2/22 for winter break)

Class dates: 2/8, 2/15, 2/29, 3/7, 3/14, and 3/21.

Many people report that Adlerian parenting courses, with their focus on mutual respect, are helpful for workplace, marital, and other relationships as well.

Participants are encouraged to read at least one of the Positive Discipline related books by Dr. Jane Nelsen and/or others prior to attending this experiential course series. More info can be found at https://www.positivediscipline.org/articles.

This FREE course currently has 6 spots remaining as of 3/6/2020.  Participants will need to pay $20 as the administration fee directly to the Tzu-Chi Academy Seattle.  If you are interested in attending this Positive Discipline in Mandarin Chinese course, please email PSAS at: psasadler@gmail.com, or call 206-527-2566 (Jessica Hsieh.)
