Looking for non-punitive parenting tools to solve power struggles and other behavior challenges? You have come to the right place. These Positive Discipline Parenting Tools provide just that—alternatives to punishment that also teach children valuable social and life skills such as self-discipline, responsibility, cooperation, and problem-solving skills. These skills help children develop a sense of self-reliance and capability that will serve them throughout their lives.
You’ll notice that none of these tool cards include any kind of punishment, rewards, or praise (all extrinsic motivators that research keeps showing over and over again do not work). These are tools that provide intrinsic motivation to develop self-reliant children that become happy, successful, contributing members of society. Every tool meets all of the Five Criteria for Positive Discipline:
Helps children feel a sense of connection? (Belonging and Significance)
Is kind and firm at the same time (Respectful and Encouraging)
Is effective long-term, (See the following two criteria)
Teaches valuable social and life skills for good character? (Respect, concern for others, problem-solving, cooperation)
Invites children to discover how capable they are? (Encourages the constructive use of personal power and autonomy)

This is the best parenting approach hands down.
Please I'm special time and take time for training; I don't think they are supposed to be identical.
If you're too tired to read...
I've been teaching parenting and working with clients for over 30 years, and what I notice is that information, to be effective and utilized, needs to come in smaller and smaller bits. Folks are busy juggling work, family, friends, and the rest of their life, so the thought of sitting down and reading an entire parenting book is overwhelming. That's why these cards are so helpful. They are based on our work, but presented in a way that you can get help on the fly, and the cards are fun and user friendly. I've recently purchased an iPod touch so I can download this app and others, especially looking forward to using them with my grandkids. Jane Nelsen has always stayed on top of technology, and we are lucky to have her enthusiasm and excitement for PD in this easy and informative format.

This app is a fabulous interactive way to help parents and kids ages 3 to 100 focus on solutions and find better ways of functioning! I have let preschool age children shake my phone to come up with workable solutions to a problem and they have been so intrigued by it that they come back time and time again because they know my phone will have an idea!! I have even given the phone to my husband when he's struggling with our 17 year old daughter. It has worked as a reminder for him of what our focus is while raising our girls. This is a great app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
