Our goal is to encourage full participation of all the adults in a student or child’s life. We lead parenting workshops, support parenting peer support networks, and collaborate with parents whose children are being marginalized by adapting our programming for specific cultural contexts.
Sound Discipline offers Parenting with Courage & Connection workshops in a relaxing, fun environment. You can choose to attend a 2-hour introduction class, or the 6-week series. Parents build community and participate in activities designed to help them understand themselves, deepen an understanding of their children, and bring more peace and joy into the home. We incorporate the latest brain science research and Positive Discipline techniques, which are respectful and non-punitive. Our classes help parents strike an important balance between being kind and firm.
“I had already been implementing some positive parenting ideas in our home after doing some reading and research but this class really helped solidify what those strategies look like in practice and for our family individually. The things we discussed helped me to evaluate my own parenting style, find the places where I can improve and gave us practical advice for how to do better. I really enjoyed learning from the teachers and the other parents in a fun and low pressure setting and would definitely recommend this class to any other parent or caregiver. I am very grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to attend!”Parent from Honey Dew Elementary School, Renton, WA
