The foundations of positive discipline are laid in infancy, by creating the conditions that allow a mutually respectful and trusting relationship to develop between parent and child.
The following books are recommended for a comprehensive, detailed look at the principles and strategies of positive discipline:
► “Attached at the Heart: Eight Proven Parenting Principles for Raising
Connected and Compassionate Children”
- Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker
► “Discipline Without Distress: 135 tools for raising caring, responsible
children without time-out, spanking, punishment or bribery” - Judy Arnall
► “How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk”
- Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish
The PCW team is working on a booklet entitled:
"A User-Friendly Guide to Positive Discipline: From Birth to Age Ten"
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.
