 Most of us were not brought up with non-punitive discipline methods, so 
 learning how to apply the principles and strategies of positive  discipline is often
 hard work. Though we think the effort is absolutely worth it, we want to make
 the already challenging and time-consuming work of parenting and caregiving a 
 bit easier by preparing an easy-to-use reference guide to positive discipline.  

 You will know this guide is available for purchase when you see that a link has 
 been created to it on this page.
