What Is Positive Discipline?

Positive Discipline is a program (based on books by Dr. Jane Nelsen, Lynn Lott, Cheryl Erwin, Kate Otolano, Mary Hughes, Mike Brock, Lisa Larson, et.al) that teaches important social and life skills, in a manner that is respectful to both the adults and the children in the situation. It is based on the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolph Dreikurs (see What Does “Adlerian” Mean).

The focus of Positive Discipline is on raising young people to be responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their community. It is based on the theory that children who have a sense of connection to their community (home, school) and whose input is regarded as meaningful are less likely to engage in “mis” behavior.  To be successful members of the community children need to be taught the necessary social and life skills.  Positive Discipline is based on the understanding that discipline must be taught and that discipline teaches.
