Positive Discipline: Fostering Prosocial BehaviorSaturday April 27, 2019
10:30 AM until 11:30 AM
Positive Discipline is a program developed by Dr. Jane Nelsen. It is based on the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs and designed to teach young people to become responsible, respectful and resourceful members of their communities. Positive Discipline teaches important social and life skills in a manner that is deeply respectful and encouraging for both children and adults.
This workshop series helps parents (and related adults) understand their child’s development pattern. It provides tools and techniques to guide children’s social and emotional development with a long term sustainable goal to develop life skills and characteristics.
These workshops will highlight the following-
1. Developing an understanding of the root cause of behaviors using real-life situations
2. Developing self-regulation in children by creating an awareness of their capability
3. Developing an appreciation for the power of choice and freedom within limits
4. Developing positive verbal and emotional communication styles
5. Setting realistic expectations for children to encourage successful outcomes
6. Developing effective strategies to handle challenging behaviors
7. Identifying conflict about-to-happen and proactively applying effective mediation techniques
8. Nurturing mutual respect, cooperation, and building resilience
9. Tips and tools to practice positive discipline
10. Develop respectful relationships
These sessions will help both the parents and their kids to be set-up to succeed, although these are adults-only sessions.
About Asiya Peerzade-
Asiya Peerzade has been working in the field of Montessori early childhood education for about 18 years now. Her desire to learn more about early childhood development attracted her to a Montessori style of education. Having undergone extensive Montessori training, Positive Discipline Parent Coach training, undertaking graduate courses at Worcester State University in Early Childhood Education and her innate passion helped her gain an in-depth understanding of the physical, social, and, emotional development of children. Ever since completing her Montessori education, she has been working in partnership with the parents.
As a first-time mom, and, a teacher, Asiya had a fair share of struggles and challenges and experimented with various approaches. With time and experience and taking courses in behavior management, she has been able to develop tools for parents who are coping with the challenges of raising children. She has been able to understand the fundamental needs of children due to her association with a multicultural and diverse group of children and parents in her career.
In response to the demand for advice and guidance sought out by parents to help them be supportive of child upbringing, Asiya has conducted workshops for parents through the town’s recreational department and at Montessori conferences and at her school. She has been doing these workshops for the past five years. She believes in providing honest, clear and precise information along with coaching the parents how to be supportive of their child’s development.
