If you’ve been around my blog much, you know I try to practice positive discipline. It has been difficult finding mommy mentors. I began with online friends and now I’m steadily building my real life community of families who practice pd.
Then I discovered Kelly! Turns out Kelly has been doing this positive discipline thing for years (her kiddos are teens now) and she even teaches pd…in Upstate SC! So I roped her into meeting me one day. I had planned our meeting on a morning I wouldn’t have Norah with me; I didn’t want to, um, mess up. And of course…that backfired and I found myself with Norah in tow. I remember Norah was carrying some star stickers and one of the first things I blurted to Kelly: “The stars are not for a reward chart.” But I needn’t have worried! Kelly was so inviting, complimentary, and well, positive!
Go check out her blog and her website. Take one of her classes. The ones I saw posted were only 10.00/person! For those of you waiting for the rumored Positive Discipline group to form, Kelly has promised to be available to hold our hands.
somehow i think we’ll have to find somewhere *not* in marilyn’s backyard for such a group. a place where our positive outlooks can be appreciated. 😉
