Once a month, The Cottage School hosts Mondays on Education. It’s an opportunity for the parents of children who attend the school as well as members of the community to come together and discuss important topics on education.
This month we will be discussing distinguished psychologist, educator, and mother of seven, Jane Nelsen’s book, “Positive Discipline.” In it, she tells us that “The key to positive discipline is not punishment, but mutual respect.”
An approach to discipline based on the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs, Positive Discipline is designed to teach young people to become responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their communities, and teaches important social and life skills in a manner that is deeply respectful and encouraging for both children and adults.
For those of you who missed this , you can view a recording of our discussion below.
In addition, you can view the powerpoint that we referenced here.
And a useful Mistaken Goals Chart here.
You can see a short video clip of Jane Nelsen here, where she explains the Five Criteria for Positive Discipline.
