Positive Discipline in the Classroom Workshop

The workshop will provide teachers with the concepts and skills necessary to successfully implement effective class meetings that create a classroom which enhances cooperation, collaboration, problem solving skills, conflict resolution, communication skills, accountability, responsibility, self-discipline, self-esteem, and mutual respect.

This workshop will also introduce Positive Discipline methods that are designed to teach students’ essential life skills and important perceptions of courage, confidence, and capability. The fringe benefit is the elimination of most discipline problems and the opportunity to focus on academic achievement.

Effective discipline teaches self-discipline from within the student, an “inner locus of control”, by helping the student figure out what causes problems and how to solve them. Punishment teaches an “external locus of control”: where a student depends on punishment or rewards from others as motivators. Effective discipline means using methods that teach important life skills such as cooperation, respect, concern for self and others, and problem solving skills


Children Are From Heaven

GIS cordially invite all the parents to attend the first parenting workshop.

Based on Dr. John Gray’s brilliant, original, and effective system that he calls positive parenting, this one-hour session will introduce the different skills of positive parenting to help improve communication, increase cooperation, and motivate your children.

The foundation of this new approach is composed from the five positive messages your children need to learn again and again:

  • It’s OK to be different
  • It’s OK to make mistakes
  • It’s OK to express negative emotions
  • It’s OK to want more
  • It’s OK to say ‘no’, but remember – Mom and Dad are the bosses
