“Establishing new relationships of equality and mutual confidence”
WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR CHILD?
Do you want him to feel secure of your love and acceptance? Experience his own strength by conquering difficulties? Find satisfaction in achievement and contribution? To not be afraid to try and fail? To see the world as a safe and friendly place?
If these are some of your goals, a parenting style that is both democratic and encouraging can support that goal. Here the child is seen as an equal, integrated part of the family, is cooperative and doing his share in the household. He is loved and accepted, and offered reasonable progressive challenges that he is permitted to develop at his own pace. It is here that the parent accepts his child’s uniqueness, provides love, respect, and a feeling of equality. It is here that the parent encourages the child to correct mistakes and develop capacities. It is here that the parent guides the child to find significance in contribution.
It all sounds so easy , doesn’t it…? Positive Discipline can help!
Think about the discipline you use at home. Does it:
- Provide your child with a sense of connection?
- Offer mutual respect and encouragement?
- Consider long-term effects?
- Teach important social and life skills?
- Invite children to discover how capable they are?
For every tool and skill you learn in our class, you will be able to answer, ‘yes’ to all five criteria.
