Free 2-hour workshop: an Introduction to Positive Discipline

Written by Stacy Havens. Posted in Positive Discipline, Whole Child Education

Curious about Unity’s approach to Character Development? Check out these upcoming free introductory workshops hosted at Unity November 12, 2013:

Discover how disciplining children can be done with kindness and firmness, at the same time! Learn how to teach your children, not boss them. Learn the reasons behind the behavior, and the differences between consequences and punishment, encouragement and praise.

With this Adlerian based program, parents will be provided with some of the basic tools and skills necessary to begin the implementation of family meetings, and create a home which enhances cooperation, collaboration, conflict resolution, communication skills, accountability and respect. Learn about PD at Unity, and how it’s integrated into your child’s daily curriculum.

The workshops are facilitated by Teresa LaSala, Certified Positive Discipline Lead Trainer.  Teresa regularly facilitates both Positive Discipline in the Classroom (PDC) and Parenting with Positive Discipline (TP) workshops.  She has on-going relationships with a number of schools to develop a comprehensive, systemic, campus-wide PD Program.  Her trainings, both locally and internationally, have provided support for parents and communities and organizations that support parents and families.

Teresa’s passion and primary focus has been to continue her work with children by consulting in public, private, charter, and parochial schools throughout New Jersey, surrounding states, and internationally.  She strongly supports the involvement and commitment of all “stakeholders” — administrators, teachers, students and parents – and encourages schools to offer a series of PD programs that build this type of partnership.

For your convenience, we are offering two free workshops as follows:

Date: November 12, 2013 Location: Unity Charter School, Art Room Times: 8:15am-10:15am or 6:30pm-8:30pm
