Molly Henry, 

POSITIVE DISCIPLINE/HUMAN GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT FACILITATOR

Belonging and significance, our greatest need, is at the core of both Positive Discipline and Montessori. We provide hands-on tools for parents and teachers to bring kind and firm discipline to homes and classrooms. I'm so thankful that Abintra is able to provide this support for families and staff.

Having access to support from the school at my fingertips made all the difference when our daughter was younger. I am grateful to have the chance to offer the same to our community.

HUMAN GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT

OUR COMPREHENSIVE HUMAN SEXUALITY PROGRAM

As part of Abintra’s commitment to science-based holistic education, the curriculum integrates age and developmentally appropriate education about sexuality.

At Abintra we believe that:

  1. Sexuality is a lifelong, natural, and integral part of being human.

  2. Children and young people deserve access to positive, accurate, and age-and-developmentally appropriate information about sexuality.

  3. Access to positive sexuality education produces what our society needs: sexually healthy adolescents and adults.

  4. All people deserve to be affirmed in all of their identities, including all LGBTQIA+ and gender identities. These are taught in an age and developmentally appropriate way.

For lessons and guidance, we use the National Standards for Sexuality Education to guide the information provided.

BUILDING YOUR TOOLBOX

CHILDREN DON'T ARRIVE IN PARENTS' LIVES WITH

A HANDBOOK OR AN OWNER'S MANUAL.

Positive Discipline provides practical parenting tools, such as

  • Limited choices

  • Encouragement

  • Positive Time Out

  • Natural consequences to teach lessons

  • Solutions, rather than punishment

  • Community or family meetings

Positive Discipline classes, which are offered throughout the year and address a variety of stages of childhood development, give parents a better understanding of the classroom language at Abintra, provide hands-on discipline tools, and build strong patterns of communication within families.
