MMS presents Positive Discipline Parenting workshop series

MMS is proud to present an eight week “Parenting with Positive Discipline” workshop series starting Tuesday, January 7, 2020.

The program will be facilitated by Susie Newhouse, a certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator and AMS certified early childhood guide.

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.
