Connection-Centered Discipline Nanny Certification the path to better behavior from kids and a more collaborative relationship with parents

I’m so excited to introduce a project I’ve been working on for a while: the Connection-Centered Discipline Nanny Certification. This training was created from the ground up especially for nannies. As a 22 year nanny veteran, I know the unique challenges nannies face when dealing with discipline issues. As a Positive Discipline Parent Educator, communications trainer and mediator, I can help you successfully meet those challenges, effectively incorporate the Positive Discipline approach into your daily work and enlist the support of your employers.

The Connection-Centered Discipline program is built on the concepts of Positive Discipline, an internationally recognized approach that hpositive disciplineas hundreds of thousands of fans. It’s used in homes, churches, and schools around the world with kids from toddlers to teens. And there are over 30 published Positive Discipline books dedicated to every age group, family situation and unique challenge including children with special needs, Why? Because it works for reasons that we can feel good about. It focuses on connection, cooperation, respect, kindness, and encouragement. But it does so without being permissive or indulgent. It’s the perfect balance between Kumbaya and “It’s my way or the highway!” parenting.
