Welcome to the Positive Discipline Workshop

Registration is now closed. Please contact the teacher trainers directly with questions about the workshop.

Kids don’t come with a manual! Bring out the best in your children and yourself with our upcoming Positive Discipline workshop. 

For those who attended the Joy Marchese seminar on January 19, you’ll know just how constructive this approach can be. This is your chance to dive deeper!

Learn how to: 

  • Be effective and have fun as a parent
  • Discipline with kindness and firmness
  • Help children become responsible problem solvers
  • Reduce power struggles
  • Build a home of cooperation and mutual respect

In this six-week course, parents will explore their family’s challenges and goals, gain a general knowledge of Adlerian Psychology, and learn the principles behind Positive Discipline. Together with our trained coaches, you will find ways to build cooperation and mutual respect with your child using Kind and Firm Parenting. To learn more about the philosophy of Positive Discipline, visit the official website.

The workshop will run via Google Meet for six consecutive Thursdays (except during Sports Break and Spring Break) with the following leaders, dates and times. Each workshop is limited to 20 participants and spaces are first-come, first served.

Please note that each workshop (A, B, C, & d) are all the same, we are offering different times in order to try and accommodate as many parent’s schedules as possible.
