52 Positive Discipline Tools to Improve your Parenting Skills
3 Ways to have fun with the deck:
1. Choose one card and practice for a week. You can follow along on our blog.
2. When faced with a challenge, choose a card at random. Chances are that it will be the perfect tool to solve the problem while teaching your child self-discipline, responsibility, cooperation, and problem-solving skills or you can try another card.
3. Invite your children to choose a card and let you know if it is the tool that will solve the problem or keep choosing until they find one that will.
These flashcards are an excellent product. I go through about 3 flashcards a night before I go to bed to ensure the information is constantly fresh in my mind. From time to time, I find myself inadvertently violating the positive discipline principle with something I did that day and the flashcard helps me get back on track.
Great ideas to help us raise our grandson with a positive attitude and at 4 years old he's a handful.
good for putting principles into practice
These are so practical to have around, especially if both spouses aren't able to read the book. These break the info into bite-size pieces, making discussion about principles easy to begin -- with adults or with children. However, some of the cards are a little vague, since not all of them have examples of application. This is why I'm not giving them 5 stars.
Outstanding tools based on brilliant concepts. Practical & easy to use.
These are so awesome to have--if only I could figure out a way to use them more consistently! I will say my 5yo loves looking through them and having me read them to her, so that leads us to talk about them which is a good first step.
I love these cards because they make learning the Positive Discipline advice do-able for me. I do one card a week and they do help. I have three little children, so anything that makes learning better parenting skills do-able is great!
Perfect for the fridge door
We love the new bigger size, we stick one up every week on our fridge door, makes them easier to read! Thanks.
The content is excellent, the box is falling apart
I love these cards. The succinct tips on each card are wonderful reminders that we have so many positive parenting options in a pinch! However, I have found that the box which contains them is falling apart after only a few uses. That is the reason for one fewer star.
JUMBO SIZE TOOLCARDS
I just used the JUMBO size cards with a local Mothers of Preschoolers group last week and they LOVED using the new size - one Mom commented, "This is like playing cards with my kids, only this time I'm winning the game!"
Certified Positive Discipline Trainer
The Tool Cards have been a favorite since they first came out. I didn't think they could be improved, but the new jumbo size is the icing on the cake!I love the tactile element the cards add to many activities. The parents enjoy the cards and look forward to using them. Many have bought their own sets and keep them handy to review.
Powerful Parenting Tools
Even one of these cards would improve your parenting skills...but having 52 Parenting Tips at your fingertips is invaluable!
Positive Discipline Trainer
The Positive Discipline Tool Cards have really been a hit in my positive parenting workshops. We not only use the set of 52 cards during our "parents helping parents" activity in the classroom, but many of the participants have purchased their own set so they can use them at home. Others have raved about the iphone application and really like the convenience of taking them where ever they go. Those 52 cards carry a big bang for a little bit of cash!
