Discipline with Loving Awareness

Online course on discipline with Cynthia Aldinger!

We’re offering this very popular course again, starting March 3, 2021 

Cynthia’s L.O.V.E. Approach to Discipline has been joyfully appreciated ever since she first offered it as a workshop at a large early childhood conference twenty years ago. Constantly asked, “When are you writing the book?” we are happy to announce that instead we are offering it as our first online course on discipline!

The time-tested tools available in this course have served as inspiration to parents, caregivers and early childhood teachers for two decades. Topics include:

  • Listening
  • Laughter
  • Order
  • Objectivity
  • Versatility
  • Vulnerability
  • Energy
  • Enthusiasm

Each of these topics is full of a variety of ways to meet various types of behavior challenges. Always respectful of the deep wisdom that lives in parents and teachers, Cynthia gently encourages participants to share their own discoveries of what has worked for them. In this way, you will come away with many more tools in your discipline tool belt. Won’t you join us?

Each Wednesday, a new lesson will open with a variety of learning activities featuring the topics of the week, including:

  • Lively videos featuring Cynthia
  • Inspiring reading materials
  • A downloadable PDF of reflections and exercises to try at home
  • Deep, rich online discussion forums with Cynthia and your fellow students
  • A live conference call for course participants to ask their questions!

Learn on your own time and at your own pace. Childcare providers and early childhood teachers needing continuing education will earn a certificate for 15 hours of CEUs through their active participation in and completion of the course by April 3, 2021.
