The end of another calendar year is a great time to reflect. Completing our fifth year, 2017 has been a wonderful for Positive Discipline of Connecticut!
We have reached many more people, to inspire and promote the development of life skills and respectful relationships in families, schools, and businesses in our local communities. We have provided classes, training and support to parents, caregivers, educators and youth development workers to help strengthen relationships with children, encouraging them to be responsible, resourceful and self-reliant.
Specifically, we continue to provide parenting classes for the public and with specific school parent groups, in English and Spanish. We have worked with school staffs in Ridgefield and Stamford to bring Social Emotional Learning in to the classroom and school. We have trained camp staff in Brookfield, to help them with even the most challenging behaviors. We continue to be amazed experiencing the growth of the participants, as well as our own personal growth.
We have an enthusiastic Board of Directors that helps guide the non-profit. Among other things, they have helped make connections, solicit grant funding, and allocate scholarship monies. There are also volunteers who help with graphic design and website management, and we appreciate all that you do!
Positive Discipline continues to spread in Connecticut. There were four certification workshops held here this year, with many more Classroom and Parent Educators in the state.
We truly appreciate the openness of the participants, the passion of the facilitators, the support of funders, and the energy of the Board of Directors.
We wish you a Positive 2018…..and hope you will stay connected to each other and to Positive Discipline!
