WHY POSITIVE DISCIPLINE?
LIKE MONTESSORI EDUCATION, POSITIVE DISCIPLINE IS
BASED ON RESPECT AND TRUST IN THE CHILD.
Combines kindness and firmness
Provides hands-on parenting and teaching tools
Recognizes stages of child development
Provides a common language and framework for discipline
Offers consistency between home and school
This discipline philosophy is based largely on the principles developed by Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikers, which have been explained thoroughly in a series of books authored and co-authored by Jane Nelsen, Ed.D. and Lynn Lott M.F.C.C. (founders of the Positive Discipline Association). Positive Discipline is part of the fabric of daily life at Abintra and is carried out by all staff members through very practical means.
