Please not you can only attend the Advanced Training if you have already attended a basic training previously.
Day 1 Saturday 28th March: Basics of democratic discipline.

Learn how to raise cooperative, responsible, and self-disciplined children without

being too authoritarian or too permissive. We will discuss the pitfalls of

punishments and rewards, and review the basic techniques of democratic

discipline with mutual respect between adults and children. Discover the three

reasons for inappropriate behaviour, and learn how to change children's

behaviour by recognizing and meeting their needs.

Day 2 Sunday 29th March: Advanced workshop bringing democratic discipline into practice.

For people who attended the basic workshop this day is an opportunity to explore

together the possibilities of this approach. A mixture of sharing experiences,

challenging our own assumptions and helpful exercises.
