Testimonies from the Spring 2022 Class
This class made me stop to think why I’m impatient, getting mad and yelling… is it to discipline him, or because I have no self-control? Maybe I didn’t have the tools to handle it maturely. It made me pause to discover what was the real intention behind our actions, and gave me better words to expanded my vocabulary for disciplining him. It redirected my focus.

I was raised with a like it or leave it mentality. You don’t do it, you get the spanking. That mindset won’t work for the long term. They will obey out of fear instead of understanding what’s truly important. Growing them into responsible adults who can critically think is the most important goal. I would really encourage parents to take this course. Families have been so isolated, especially during COVID. The group connection and hearing other people’s stories was so helpful. So many resources and lessons from other generations that was so useful.

The Discipline that Connects class taught us that we need to step back and understand what the child is feeling and emphasize with them. That way, they don’t feel challenged and are able to hear us and accept correction more easily.
