Positive Discipline is an educational method based on respect, empathy and building self-esteem of a child, while taking care of the parental boundaries at the same time. The golden mean between authoritarian and stress-free upbringing. Consistent with the philosophy of Jesper Juul, NVC (Nonviolent Communication) and M. Montessori.
The basic assumption is that all people have two most important needs: the need of belonging and being important. And all behaviours of both children and adults are caused by trying to satisfy these needs.

Positive Discipline focuses on building a child’s self-esteem, respecting its individuality, feelings and needs while respecting the needs of the group – family or any social group. Therefore this method teaches how to set boundaries that give children a sense of security and help them find themselves in a larger community, but without punishment, intimidation, humiliation or negation of the child’s feelings. A positive parent is a firm and polite parent at the same time, teaching cooperation rather than subordination; independent thinking and making choices rather than only being obedient to others; building the child’s sense of being an important and equal family member, which includes both privileges and responsibilities.

 
 

NVC is a method of communication (and for many a philosophy of life) based on empathy and contact with your own needs created by Marshall B. Rosenberg’s, a psychology doctor and a mediator. A method that teaches that instead of the language of judgment and criticism – the language of violence – you can build a relationship with yourself and others using the language of needs and feelings. By being in deep contact with yourself, knowing what you really want and need, you can communicate it to other people in a way that you can see and respect their needs and feelings at the same time. This, in turn, makes everyone feel important and seen and people do not have to get into a conflict with others to take care of their own needs. Respect and empathy for both others and yourself are important elements of this method.
