Positive Discipline, the popular six-week parenting group, returns to the Springfield Area Parent Child Center Mondays through Oct. 25 from 6-7:30 p.m.
Parenting the Positive Discipline way is an investment in the present and future parent-child relationship.
Author Dr. Jane Nelson suggests, "When children and adults develop a concern for others and their community, and learn methods and problem-solving skills to act on their concern, we will have peace in the world."
In the group, parents discuss the behavior of children and practice promoting positive attitudes. Parents who use kindness and firmness to teach life skills will encourage self-respect, self-discipline, cooperation, good behavior, and problem-solving skills in their children.
All parenting groups at the SAPCC are held in both a fun and relaxed environment.
Call the SAPCC at 886-5242 to register. Free child care provided on a limited basis- please call ahead.
The SAPCC is a free and elective community resource building strong communities, one family at a time. The Center offers services to educate and support young children and their families. To learn more about parenting groups and the array of services offered by the SAPCC visit www.sapcc-vt.org.
