About This Workshop

Do morning routines drive you a little crazy? Does trash only get taken out after a zillion reminders? Stop the nagging, complaining, and punishing. Consider positive discipline and the practical strategies that support children to be more responsible. Parents who focus on the negative tend to have less time to meaningfully connect with their children. There are many positive discipline parenting tools that will help to create smoother family routines. These same tools will also help your children to be more responsible. Join other parents to learn how rules, routines and positive discipline instead of punishment will lead to a better connection with your children.
