BELLOWS FALLS - Through the coordination efforts of the Springfield Area Parent Child Center, "Positive Discipline for Preschoolers", the popular six week parenting group, returns to the Parks Place Wednesdays, May 26 through June 30 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Parks Place is located at 44 School Street in Bellows Falls.
Parenting is rarely a simple matter and no one can challenge or stretch a parent like a very young child who is learning and exploring his world one piece at a time. In the group, parents learn how to understand their growing child and how to exchange power struggles for respectful cooperation.
Parenting the Positive Discipline way is an investment in the present and future parent-child relationship. Author Dr. Jane Nelson suggests "When children and adults develop a concern for others and their community, and learn methods and problem-solving skills to act on their concern, we will have peace in the world." Parents who use kindness and firmness to teach life skills will encourage self-respect, self-discipline, cooperation, good behavior, and problem-solving skills in their children.
All parenting groups coordinated by the Parent Child Center are held in both a fun and relaxed environment.
