Healthy Respectful Discipline for You and Your Child
Jeanne-Marie Paynel, Founder of Voila Montessori

Parents often ask us what approach to discipline is most consistent with the Montessori method of education, both at school and at home. We're pleased to answer that question, with this engaging presentation from Jeanne-Marie Paynel, a leading world expert on the Montessori method of education, as well as a parent educator in the well-regarded “Positive Discipline” approach to helping children develop self-discipline, problem-solving skills, and cooperation. Positive Discipline is a highly effective method that fosters respectful adult-child relationships both at home and at school, and which effectively inspires children to independently make good choices. Jeanne-Marie has particular expertise with children in the 0 to 6 age group, but is well-versed at applying the Positive Discipline method to all age groups. (This approach even has valuable implications for adult communication and adult relationships!). We look forward to a thought-provoking and highly practical discussion of these powerful ideas.
