The Soul of Discipline – Raising Respectful Children in a Culture of Disrespect

A parent’s journey is filled with both precious moments and difficult situations. Our sense of how we are doing is often determined by the way in which we respond to the flashpoints of parenting. These moments will either refine or consume us.

Parenting and discipline styles have changed over the years yet often these influences flow into our family and classroom life today. It is so revealing to explore discipline styles past and present, from the old blind obedience to behavior modifications based on punishment and reward or even to our present day behavior affirmation, often expressed as the good job culture.

While these tools have their place, this presentation will set out three cumulative discipline phases. Firstly, training creative compliance for the young child, secondly, building emotional skills for the elementary age, and lastly, for the teenager, managing critical choices.

Because so many of our parenting and teaching challenges occur naturally as part of child development it is possible to anticipate these difficulties and to prepare for them in advance. For discipline to be effective it must always begin with preventive discipline. This presentation will provide a developmental roadmap to help parents and educators establish the kind of discipline that is both nurturing and effective.

Depending on the format chosen, following these presentations we may have a chance to discuss and reflect on our own experiences and how what we have heard may find a place in further building healthy relationships within our families and schools.
