I will be talking about positive discipline in my class this week. Many people mistakenly believe that positive parenting means permissive parenting – always saying yes, and never saying no. I absolutely believe in setting clear limits with children.
Positive Parenting Blog has a great post on how positive parenting is not authoritarian but neither is it permissive. Check it out: www.positive-parents.org/2011/06/positive-parenting-is-not-permissive.html
If you have a hard time saying no, check out: Saying No to Your Child and No Means No.
