Positive Discipline of Connecticut, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) public charity with a mission to promote and encourage the development of life skills and respectful relationships in families, school and businesses. We are run by a volunteer Board of Directors and have no paid staff.
We provide classes to parents, caregivers, educators, and youth development workers to help strengthen relationships with children, encouraging them to be responsible, respectful, and self-reliant. There is a fee for each class. Parenting classes are facilitated by Certified Parent Educators. Staff development work, educator classes and other school programs are facilitated by Certified Classroom Educators. All of our facilitators donate a portion of their class fee towards operating costs, and many choose to provide scholarships to class participants. All of our Board members also make a financial contribution to Positive Discipline of Connecticut each year.
All of our facilitators have been trained and certified by the Positive Discipline Association. The PDA is a global membership organization for Positive Discipline that includes hundreds of people from around the world. Positive Discipline professionals are bringing this work to over 50 countries. Join the Positive Discipline movement and become a member of the Positive Discipline Association for just $25 a year.
