Positive Discipline in Everyday Parenting (PDEP) was designed to help parents learn how to teach children effectively while respecting their rights. It’s an approach that can guide all interactions with children, not just the challenging ones, to promote healthy child development and strong parent-child relationships. The gentle, non-violent approach to parenting taught in this 9-week course can be used from birth onward.

Based on research in children’s healthy development, and effective parenting, and founded on child rights principles, PDEP is not permissive parenting and is not about punishment. It is about long-term solutions that develop children’s own self-discipline and lifelong skills and is designed to have you teaching non-violence, empathy, self-respect, human rights and respect for others.

Positive Discipline is for all parents, grandparents, foster parents and others who care for children of all ages. It’s also for future parents. And it’s for those who support parents, such as parent educators, parent group facilitators, and family support workers. It can be helpful for any family.

This is a registered event and participants must be able to attend all 9 sessions.
