About the Event
What happens in the workshops?
Learning: Over a series of 6 workshops, you will learn and discover many of the 52 tools that Positive Discipline offers, and delve into the theory behind the tools (Adlerian psychology).
Practice: You get the opportunity to deepen your understanding by taking part in experiential activities (role-plays) that help you to understand what you (and your children) think, feel and choose to do in response to each situation. This helps you choose the tools needed to bring about the change in your individual family situation.
“Mistakes are wonderful opportunities to learn” – Jane Nelsen, D.Ed. author of The Positive Discipline Series
Sharing. The programme is a wonderful opportunity to share with each other – to learn from each others’ successes, struggles and mistakes, and to see the progress made each week. Each week one person shares a specific situation in their family, and the group brainstorms solutions to the situation. Participants say that this ‘parents helping parents’ time is one of the highlights of the workshops.

I look forward to going on this parenting journey with you, to bring about the long-term change you've always wanted in your family.

In Parenting Club, we meet for 14 hours, spread over anything from 2 days to 7 weekly sessions. 7 sessions is the most usual format (especially as anything longer than that is hard work on Zoom), so this video break it down that way.
Each time, we have a warm up/ice-breaker activity, and talk about our reading homework (generally, one person gives us a summary).
There's always some teaching time, and several role-play activities. We can sometimes feel a bit silly role-playing a child (or a cross parent!) but it helps you to better understand how the child is feeling, what they are thinking, and what they are deciding (about their parent, or what they want to do). And once you understand that, it helps to bring about transformation in your parenting style.
Each session also includes a 'parents helping parents' - one parent explains a recurring problematic situation in their family, and once we've tried to work out what the mistaken goal is, we role-play and then brainstorm solutions. The parent goes home with all the solutions, and comes back next week to tell us which one(s) they've put in place, and how it went.
