“You helped teach me the tools that have now allowed me to start the process of finding solutions to any
situation on my own.  There has been so much kindness and respect in my home since I have been back and
it is just amazing how smoothly things run. Monday morning I decided to just slow life down. Lawson
made his own cup of milk… then he even made us our coffee from start to finish (taking time to teach).
I could go on and on about all the small changes we have already made and how empowered he seems to
feel. Thank you again for everything.”

– Mom of two boys, ages 3 and 10 months


Parents, Grandparents and Caregivers, do you…

  • Feel like everything is a struggle instead of having fun doing family activities?
  • Ever wish your children would just cooperate without threats or bribes?
  • Wonder if their behavior is normal and appropriate?
  • Worry that you are too permissive or too strict?

PDCR provides tools and insights to build relationships based on mutual dignity and respect. We have areas of focus on different age groups from 0-5 years, School-Aged (5-12 years), and Teens as well as specific topics such as Sibling Rivalry and Digital Media.

Positive Discipline invites children to do the right thing even when no one is looking. We believe in the value of learning from mistakes and problem solving to find more effective solutions, provide for healthier families, successful students and greater civic engagement.  Go ahead and read a PD book, take a class, or start with these Tip Sheets here!
