Welcome from Ruth!
In my work with Positive Discipline as well as the programs and resources that I have personally developed,
building positive and healthy relationships with children is always at the forefront.
While the reasons are numerous, a couple of key reasons include the facts that optimum brain development takes place within the context of strong and healthy relationships, as does optimum learning (including social emotional learning).
And did you know that the more connected a child feels to the adults in their life,
the more they desire to cooperate with them?
Whether you’re a parent, teacher, caregiver or coach, building connection with the children in your life is always the place to start. For it’s healthy and loving relationships that have the power to transform lives.
"Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of the connection and insists that they become the best they can be."
