Are you looking for non-punitive parenting tools to deal with power struggles and other behavioral challenges with
your child? Positive Discipline can help.
The app provides more than 50 Positive Discipline Parenting Tool Cards that focus on alternatives to traditional punishment. They teach children valuable social and life skills such as self-discipline, responsibility, cooperation, and problem solving, skills that they will need throughout their lives.
There are many ways you can use these cards. In the middle of a power struggle, shake your device and see what card comes up. It just might offer the perfect solution. Ask your child to shake until a card appears that works best for both of you. In the process, you are focusing on solutions, not conflicts. Or choose a card once a week and discuss it with your child.
You’ll notice that none of these tool cards include any kind of punishment, reward, or praise, methods of discipline that research has shown to be ineffective. These are tools that provide a proactive way to develop self-reliant children, who then become happy, successful, contributing members of society.
