I just realized this event is tonight! There will be a live chat with Jane Nelsen at the Positive Discipline Ning Group from 9:30 - 10:30 pm (Eastern) tonight. I'm hoping to join in.
When Does PD Stop Being PD? Avoiding Permissiveness & Manipulation
What does Jane Nelsen have to say about avoiding permissiveness and manipulation while parenting? Join Jane and other parents for this Positive Discipline chat where Jane will discuss the idea that parents can be too kind without being firm, and not hold true to the Positive Discipline principles that children can learn to problem solve, be creative and develop disappointment muscles. Jane will answer questions from the chat audience that will inspire parents to offer children opportunities to learn important life skills.
This sure looks like an interesting topic. This will be my first time participating in anything officially relating to PD.
I've never participated in a chat on Ning before, but I imagine it's pretty straightforward. I'm not sure if you need to be a member of the PD group or not to have access to the chat, but it only takes a couple of minutes to sign up for it if it turns out you do need to be a member. Maybe I'll see you there!
