Positive Discipline of Connecticut inspires and promotes the development of life skills and respectful relationships in families, schools, and businesses in our local communities. We provide classes, training and support to parents, caregivers, educators and youth development workers to help strengthen relationships with children, encouraging them to be responsible, resourceful and self-reliant.
Positive Discipline provides a "whole child" approach to social-emotional learning using a consistent language in homes, schools, and communities. Classes help parents and teachers build positive connections with children, based on mutual respect, while establishing healthy boundaries. The goal is to help children learn self-discipline, communication, and problem-solving skills. The focus is on solutions to problems using kindness, firmness, dignity, and respect; eliminating all punishment (blame, shame and pain).
Positive Discipline helps children build internal strength and resiliency, rather than rely on external feedback and approval.
