Teaching Parenting the Positive Discipline Way (Seattle – July 2019)

July 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - July 10, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Teaching Parenting the Positive Discipline Way (developed by Lynn Lott and Jane Nelsen) provides a step-by-step approach to starting and leading experientially based parenting groups using the Positive Discipline and Adlerian philosophy. This program stands alone or offers significant enhancement to any program. It provides experiential activities that reach the heart to inspire deeper understanding and change. Parents love the Parents Helping Parents Problem-Solving Steps because this process provides a fun and effective way for them to get specific help with real problems.
