In 1981, Jane Nelsen wrote her first book, Positive Discipline. Since then she has authored many more, from Positive Discipline for Preschoolers to Positive Discipline for Teenagers. Many years ago Jane recognized the compatibility of Positive Discipline with the Montessori approach.

Co-Authored with Montessorian Chip DeLorenzo, this latest title is pertinent for all levels of Montessori, and will be used in the workshops offered through the Positive Discipline training program.

With emphasis on creating and maintaining respectful relationships, Positive Discipline is sure to provide support and guidance for Montessori teachers at every age level. Teachers will relate to the situations the authors describe and feel empowered by the authors’ responses as they learn the techniques and skills they offer. A must-have for every teacher.

You’ll learn how to:
• effectively set and maintain limits with children
• foster children’s self-regulation and responsibility
• encourage open communication with your students
• help children attain a sense of belonging and significance
• And much more
