Wits' End Parenting: Why isn’t Positive Discipline working??

Parent Classes, Workshops & Groups

Free Web class!

“We have tried time-outs and positive reinforcement. None of those things are working and we are lost.”

“We've taken positive parenting classes and done our own therapy, but it's still not working.”

“We have tried Positive Discipline with the kids, but they don’t care about rewards.”

“We’ve tried everything possible to help her work through these behaviors and are at our wits' end.”

These quotes are real! They come from among the initial inquiries our clients make. Anything sound familiar? Have you read all the parenting books and tried all the parenting tips, but nothing has worked – or if it has worked, it’s not working now??

Sticker charts and rewards charts … time-outs … Connection before Correction … giving “choices” … distracting, redirecting, making it a game, making Agreements…

At Wits’ End Parenting we’re actually certified in Positive Discipline – so we DO know that Positive Discipline gets a lot of things right!

But we also know that Positive Discipline was not designed with strong-willed, “spirited” kids in mind.

Positive Discipline is based on assumptions that, while they may be true of a lot of kids, they're just not true of strong-willed kids. (Example: “If you just explain the reason for the rule, they’ll follow it.”) And while many Positive Discipline strategies will work for many kids, for strong-willed kids these techniques miss some important pieces – and they don’t go far enough.

If Positive Discipline isn’t working for your child, this doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong! If Positive Discipline isn’t working for your child, come to this workshop to learn where what you’re doing falls short, and what you need to do instead. Some of what you’ll learn will surprise you!

Note: To facilitate the energy and sense of connectedness that comes with real-time participation, we're no longer providing recordings of our webinars. If you think this one would be helpful to you, please tweak your schedule accordingly!

Rebecah is AMAZING. Seriously, she's been life-changing!
--Wits' End coaching client

I had been talking to people for a year…. therapists, my friends, teachers… just trying to understand what’s going on. I talked to Rebecah for an hour, and my mind is blown! She "gets" my kid!
--Wits' End coaching client

I had read so many books, and either the methods didn't work with my kids, or I would get so worn down I would give up… Meeting with Rebecah every week held me accountable. I highly recommend Rebecah and Wits’ End!
