Connecting Before Correcting: Parents Learn Positive Discipline at PTA Meeting

At last week’s PTA meeting, attendees enjoyed an interactive and informative discussion on Positive Discipline led by Dr. Jody McVittie of Sound Discipline. Dr. McVittie led parents through thought-provoking exercises to help them understand useful Positive Discipline techniques such as how encouragement helps kids more than praise and how to be both kind and firm.
