Parentingkarma shares learnings and experiences with Positive Discipline tools.
Our aim is to empower parents with tools to enhance their parenting, and equip them on how to help children develop *Problem-solving skills *Self-esteem *Responsibility *Self-discipline *Resiliency *Motivation *Accountability *Flexibility etc., etc., and more such essential life skills.
Teaching life-skills influences the child’s growth, development, and future success. And “Actions speak louder than words”, “Children do better when they feel better” are proven. So, who better to model these essential skills than their first influence – parents!
The tools shared also help to breakthrough and solve challenges like *Power Struggles *Strong-willed *Tantrums *Sibling Fights *Tough Listeners *Homework battles *Lack of Motivation for school *Sharing responsibilities *Back Talk etc.
Why life skills?
Real life proofs exist to show that possessing life skills like communicating effectively, ability to work cooperatively, a sense of self-respect, social consciousness, decision making and problem solving - predict not only academic success but also success in the community and professional life.
Since the development of these skills begin in early childhood, it is vital that parents are able to help children *Embrace these skills *Thrive and *Contribute in this constantly changing world!
There is tons of research about how children's attitudes change dramatically when empowered. They direct their energy towards absorbing life-skills and hence becoming capable citizens of the world.
Why Positive Discipline?
Children don't come with a set of directions. And each child is unique; and so is each family. Moreover, parenting skills - that are effective long-term, are not instinctive! Positive Discipline parenting tools and techniques are like a manual for parenting.
This is an experiential learning program developed by Jane Nelson and Lynn Lott (both trainers of Adler's Individual Psychology), for parents and teachers to discover tools t0 teach children - essential social and life skills. It is based on the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs, both psychologists, who pioneered parenting education.
All of these parenting recommendations help approach the child at a developmentally appropriate level, through tweaks in our everyday routines. The highlight is that each tool can be implemented independently or in combination with other positive discipline tools, wherein parents get to choose what works for them/ for their child/ for their existing family framework, at a pace which works for everyone involved.
