What is Positive Discipline?
We incorporate Dr. Jane Nelsen’s Positive Discipline based on the theories of psychologists Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs. Positive Discipline helps children feel a sense of significance and belonging through learning important life skills of empowerment, self-reliance and cooperation. This discipline style encourages kindness and firmness at the same time:
Kindness is the way we interact and connect with children, honoring their dignity and respecting their needs.
Firmness is the way we respect ourselves and the needs of the situation, as well as following through with what we say we are going to do.
We’re nice people. We’re not trying to sell you something you don’t need. As parents and former nannies ourselves, we created Sproutable because we want to help. We promise to give you your money back if you’re not satisfied. 100%, no questions asked.
