MMS presents six-week ‘Parenting with Positive Discipline’ series


MMS is proud to present a six-week series of “Parenting with Positive Discipline” classes for our parents and caregivers. Classes will be facilitated by Susie Newhouse and Samantha Van Den Berghe-Lynch, both of whom hold AMS certification in early childhood education and have completed specialized Positive Discipline training.

Positive discipline is a time-honored approach for helping children develop a sense of belonging and contribution, responsibility, respect for self and others and problem-solving skills. PD teaches important social and life skills in a manner that is deeply respectful and encouraging for both children and adults (including parents, teachers, childcare providers, youth workers, and others).

Recent research tells us that children are “hardwired” from birth to connect with others, and that children who feel a sense of connection to their community, family and school are less likely to misbehave. To be successful, contributing members of their community, children must learn necessary social and life skills. Positive Discipline is based on the understanding that discipline must be taught and that discipline also teaches.

The six week session will be held on Mondays from 5:30-7:00 p.m. on November 7, 14, 21 and 28 and December 5 and 12.
