Teaching Parenting The Positive Discipline Way for Montessori Educators and Leaders – April 26th-July 26th


This online interactive and streamed video workshop is designed for Montessori educators and leaders who want to offer the parents in their school an effective discipline approach. This method is based on Adlerian Psychology Montessori Philosophy and integrates social and emotional learning while reducing challenging behaviors. Successful participants will earn recognition as a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator through the Positive Discipline Association (PDA).


Participants will:

  • Learn research based and effective tools and techniques for teaching parents how to use discipline that is kind and firm at the same time (non-punitive, non-permissive)
  • Learn how to facilitate a parent class from the position of a non-expert and gain practice with experiential exercises that help parents go beyond intellectual understanding to be able to respond in empowering ways that teach children.
  • Learn how to use materials and activities in group settings, parenting classes and individual work with families.
  • Apply the principles of Positive Discipline in a Montessori context and help families develop independence, self-regulation, cooperation and mutual respect within their children.
