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 flash points 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.

Held at Shining Mountain Waldorf School, Festival Hall.  More info here.
