Discipline for Children and Youth

Discipline for Children and Youth

As a caregiver, you are helping your child understand and navigate the world around them. They are testing limits and learning the rules. It is your role to help your child learn right from wrong and become successful in life.

Your child learns this through discipline. Discipline teaches your child how to manage their behaviour through clear rules and consequences.

Children who have been taught through positive discipline are more likely to be responsible, self-confident, and make good choices independently. Without discipline, children are more likely to lack self-control and social skills, and engage in harmful behaviours.

Who can attend?

Caregivers aged 18 or over, who are parenting a child or youth of any age

What will you learn?

  • The importance of boundaries and setting limits
  • The difference between punishment and discipline
  • How to use natural and logical consequences


When and where is it offered?

  • The class is available as a group workshop and a private class.
  • The group class is offered several times per year. Scroll down for upcoming dates.
  • You can attend this class online
  • In our group workshops, you will have many opportunities to ask questions, learn about yourself and your family, hear others’ experiences, and practice new skills. Many people who attend our workshops say they feel better after attending because they realize that they are not alone.
  • In a private class, you will receive the same amount of information as our group workshops, condensed into 3 hours with the facilitator. These are ideal for individuals or couples who want to get started sooner than the next group workshop, can’t attend the group workshops due to work schedules or other personal commitments, or simply prefer a more private setting.

How much does it cost?

Group workshop: $50 per person or $75 per couple

Private session: $325 per person or couple
