Jane Nelsen is a legend in the field of positive discipline. Over the past few decades, she’s written and spoken prolifically on the topic. To give you a quick pedigree, Alred Adler (the father of humanistic psychology), was a mentor to Rudolf Dreikurs (who specialized in individual psychology and challenging behaviors), and Dreikurs was a mentor to Jane Nelsen. That’s a pretty impressive line.
Well, Jane Nelsen has, of course, become a mentor herself and has teamed up with Kristina Bill and Joy Marchese to continue to share the principles of positive discipline with parents today.
The trio co-authored the book, Positive Discipline for Today’s Busy (& Overwhelmed): Parent How to Balance Work, Parenting, & Self for lasting Well-Being. (See link below.)
This is the first time I’ve interviewed two guests at once, but you can easily tell their voices apart. Kristina, who is actually a Swedish transplant to the UK, is the one with the British accent, and Joy is the one with the American accent.
Both women share wonderful insight in our conversation, as they talk, not only about the book, but how the principles they’ve written about have changed their own lives — not just in the realm of parenting, but in life in general.
