Positive Discipline for Working Parents (Online)

April 9, 2020 @ 14:00 - 15:30 CEST


This is a private online conference open to CERN employees. Should you wish to have something similar organised for your organisation, or for yourself, please contact me.

Are you open to learning something new about communicating with children?  

This interactive online workshop of 90′ is designed to give participants the opportunity to discover some of the key concepts of Positive Discipline and the underlying motivations of children behaviour.

The objective of Positive Discipline is to provide parents with non-punitive methods to encourage and empower children of all ages, and to help them develop valuable social and life skills. These are especially necessary during forced confinement and having to live together 24/7 – a very tough situation for all to say the least.

The facilitator is Izumi Takase – Certified Positive Discipline Trainer in Geneva. She is the founder of iPositiveLINC and you can learn more about her on the link here:  https://ipositivelinc.com/about/

Objectives of the workshop

  • Offer an informative, practical and entertaining presentation to parents working from home with children of all ages (two to teens)
  • Participants will take home at least 4 immediately applicable Positive Discipline Tools that can be life-changing for parents and the family
  • Have the opportunity to participate in an experiential activity that helps parents get into the child’s world and understand what works and what doesn’t work.

Positive Discipline briefly explained

Positive Discipline is based on the philosophies of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs. These psychiatrists understood the importance of maintaining dignity and respect for all people – including children.

Positive Discipline Books and Workshops developed by Dr. Jane Nelsen and Lynn Lott, provide parents, teachers and carers with non-punitive methods to encourage and empower children as well as adults, and to help them develop valuable social and life skills.

Five Criteria for Positive Discipline :

  1. Helps children feel a sense of connection (Belonging and Significance)
  2. Is respectful and encouraging (Kind and Firm at the same time)
  3. Is effective long-term (punishment work short term, but has negative long-term effects)
  4. Teaches valuable social and life skills
  5. Invites children to discover how capable they are (encourages constructive use of personal power and autonomy)
