“Positive Discipline and How Our Community Uses It”
Presented by Michelle Svenson of Maharishi School Iowa
ABOUT THE TOPIC:
Positive Discipline is a framework designed to raise children to be responsible, self-sufficient, and kind adults.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Michelle is the director of the Maharishi School Children’s House. She fearlessly leads a team of individuals who are trained and utilize positive discipline in the Children’s House. She also leads groups for our parents to help them build a community with a cohesive plan of discipline. About her teaching style, and a tribute to integrating positive discipline, Michelle says, “I am playful, but I think more so I am very logical with the children. I like to have them come to their own understanding. When a child asks me a question, I will often say, “What do you think?” or I will give an answer and ask them why they think that’s the answer. It is really powerful to have six-year-olds (and even five and four!) figure out the reasons behind a classroom rule. It makes for a very cooperative environment.”
