Positive Parenting Resources

This past Sunday, I shared several sites and resources on positive parenting during the MamasTimeOut© show.  

Positive Parenting includes parenting with discipline. Discipline involves teaching with consistency, rules and consequences, but not physical punishment. Educators are expected to use this form of discipline in the classroom.

Some examples of positive discipline include:
  • rewards system
  • taking away privileges
  • using time-out consistently and appropriate for age level (ie: 1 min per age under 5)
What positive discipline does not include:
  • spanking, physical punishment
  • yelling, demeaning a child
  • emotional abuse
