Positive Discipline is not permissive parenting and is not about punishment. It is about long-term solutions that develop children’s own self-discipline and their lifelong skills. Positive Discipline is about teaching non-violence, empathy, self-respect, human rights, and respect for others.
The Positive Discipline program is a not-for-profit program that was developed in partnership between the University of Manitoba and Save the Children Sweden. Positive Discipline is a preventive, universal, and culturally inclusive approach to parenting and working with children.
Positive discipline is non-violent and respects the child as a learner. It is an approach to teaching that helps children succeed, gives them information, and supports their growth.
Positive Discipline in Everyday Parenting is a set of principles that can be applied in a wide range of situations. It can guide all interactions with children, not just the challenging ones.
