We’ve all been there.
The temper tantrum in the middle of the store when your kid does NOT want to leave the candy (or toy) aisle… and they’re not giving in without a fight.
Jane Nelsen, left, and Mary Tamborski, right, are best-selling authors and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists. The mother daughter duo collaborate regularly.
It’s every parent’s nightmare… knowing that other parents are seeing you utterly fail to control your child.
You feel small and embarrassed.
The world is watching. So what do you do?
How did it happen that your kid runs your household? Or worse, that you’ve become such a monster that nearly every day has you raising your voice, threatening to punish and watching your kid continue to misbehave again and again.
Whatever you try… none of it works.
You promise yourself that you’ll be stronger, more prepared, and that the endless struggle will come to an end…
And then your kid just doesn’t listen again the next day.
The cycle repeats… over and over.
You are out of ideas.
You are out of patience.
You are (almost!) out of hope.
You don’t want to be a big scary yelling mommy or daddy.
You don’t want to be a pushover, at the mercy of your little tyrant.
You’re tired of your child’s moods and whims running the household.
You just want your kid to behave already. To respect you. To listen. To make life a little less difficult.
And maybe have FUN as a parent, and actually enjoy your children for a change.
You’re desperate for a way to create a positive, loving relationship with your children AND help them behave in the way you expect.
You want to encourage them to solve their own problems instead of running to you to save them every time.
You know that your entire goal as a parent is to help your kids learn responsibility and how to meet their own needs, so they are prepared for the demands, challenges and rewards of adulthood.
But HOW do you make this happen?
Even if you know that you don’t want to be punitive or permissive, what are the steps you need to take to raise happy, cooperative kids that will thrive in adulthood?
What do you do when your kid won’t listen, when the kids keep fighting, when you are losing your cool/ running late/ at your wits end?
Because advice is great. Things that work for your friends are great.
But will they help when your child is dead-set on the overpriced pink fluffy unicorn stuffed animal that’s randomly set in the laundry detergent aisle of the grocery store and now you’ve got a cart full of groceries and a screaming kid on the floor while everyone stares at you like you’re a terrible parent?
What you need are real-world tools and knowledge that can help you keep your cool, help your child learn, AND stop the temper tantrums from taking over your world.
When I was a young parent with several young children, I was at my wits end.
Nothing I tried could get my kids to behave. I found myself yelling, punishing and crying all the time.
As an educator, I knew there had to be a better way. Something that would help my kids behave today, while raising them to be capable and confident adults tomorrow.
Lucky for me, I found the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs.
Everything I learned resounded deep inside of me. An approach that was both kind and firm? Strategies that helped kids feel a sense of belonging and significance? That worked in the short and long term? That raised children to have good character and capable life skills?
Sign me up.
This was the solution I was looking for. The strategies I learned really worked—most of the time. When they didn’t work, I discovered the foundational principles that were missing. I became the parent I wanted to be, and enjoyed my children more than ever.
I just had to share this with others. First, I shared with friends in small groups, then through lectures to parents, then as an elementary school counselor. Finally I wrote the book, Positive Discipline, followed by several Positive Discipline books for different ages and stages. Much to my delight, two of my seven kids grew to become parent educators themselves.
And since then, we’ve helped millions of parents worldwide.
We have Certified Positive Discipline Trainers in 87 countries.
Not only is it highly effective with over 40+ years of proven results in classrooms, homes and academia, it’s also very hands on, chock-full of real-world tools to help you address nearly every challenge your kids throw your way.
Your kid won’t do their chores? … There’s a tool for that.
Your first born keeps hitting his little sister? … There’s a tool for that.
You can’t get out the door on time and are always late for everything? … There’s a tool for that.
Bedtime takes hours?… There’s a tool for that.
Endless sibling bickering? Yup, you guessed it. There’s a tool for that, too.
With over 30 parent-tested tools at your disposal, you’ll be armed for any curveball that comes your way.
And these tools don’t just work in the short term (though they do - you’ll be amazed at how fast harmony will be restored and you’ll enjoy your children again)…
These tools build skills for tomorrow.
They teach your children to build valuable skills and beliefs that will help them:
In other words, these tools become the foundation of a happy home today, and a thriving life tomorrow.
I’ve been teaching and creating Positive Discipline books for decades. I’ve collaborated with classroom and early childhood educators, youth coaches, academic business coaches, and Marriage and Family Therapists. Yes, these tools are effective in the workplace and even for couples.
But my favorite collaborator of all is my youngest daughter, Mary Nelsen Tamborski. Not only is she a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, she’s also a mother of 3 boys.
Every day she meets with parents and kids to help them transform their households, improve their relationships, and instill the skills and capabilities they need for a happy, thriving life.
And every day she’s helping parents with specific, step-by-step instructions on HOW to put everything we teach into practice.
Because it’s one thing to understand how effective family meetings are.
And it’s another to know how to start them. How to make them run smoothly. How to get everyone to participate. How to prevent it from going off the rails. How to generate the best solutions.
Because her work is so hands-on, and because we’ve seen time and again how much help parents need implementing our tools and guidelines, we decided we needed to find a way to provide practical, step by step help to as many parents as possible.
We wanted to make Positive Discipline easy.
To give you a comprehensive roadmap to help you put our most effective tools into practice… even if you’ve tried on your own for years.
That’s why we partnered with Flourish to make this video program - our first ever focused on helping parents like you implement Positive Discipline in your day to day lives.
We wanted to make it easy for you to learn, understand, and USE Positive Discipline in your family right away… without having to connect the dots by yourself, figure out how to make it work for you, and second-guess yourself.
We’ll show you exactly what you can use to handle each situation, and how it has played out using real-life examples and stories.
We’ll not only review the theory so you understand WHY it’s important to handle each situation in a specific way… but we’re giving you the actual step-by-step tool to help you make it happen in your family.
The best part about these tools is that they are mix & match. Because you’ll naturally find tools that feel good to you - every parent has their favorites. And every situation has at least one tool - but most have multiple tools that you can use to change the behavior AND strengthen the relationship between you and your child.
And we’re going to help you understand these tools faster and easier than you’d ever imagine, both through demonstrations and exercises that you’ll do right along with us, using the workbook we’ve designed to act as your own personal reference manual for parenting.
We’ll also include reference sheets, information about child psychology, and tool tips throughout the workbook - along with exercises you can do with your children to see these lessons play out in real-time in front of your eyes.
You’ll participate in imagination exercises that will put you in your children’s shoes - so you can get a deeper understanding of what they’re thinking and feeling at different times in your day and relationship.
PLUS we’ve polled the Flourish audience and created a Q&A session based on REAL questions from REAL parents - the specific things you and others like you have said you need to know to make this work for you.
You’ll feel confident using each tool to handle those inevitable curveballs that your children will (sometimes gleefully) throw your way.
These tools will reshape your relationship with your child, make your household the smoothest it’s ever been, and remind you just how much you love being a parent.
We created this program to go in-depth on the most important, most effective tools to parent your kids in a way that creates short term harmony while fostering long term success. The tools that will help you set your child up for success AND maintain the loving, positive relationship you want to have with them.
For 4+ hours, we’ll be your personal parenting coaches. We’ll walk you through the ins and outs of HOW to put our tools into practice, breaking each tool down into actionable steps and showing you how to apply all that you are learning with your children.
We’ll role play different scenarios so you can see what success looks like.
And we’ll show you what to do when things go wrong, so you can quickly course-correct and get back on track.
Once you’ve taken this 6-module course, you’ll understand:
With Positive Discipline Made Easy, you WILL have a more harmonious home and you WILL set your child up for long-term success and happiness.
In this module, we’ll talk about the different types of parenting styles and what experiences children have with each. You’ll also get an in-depth overview of Positive Discipline and why it’s the preferred method of parenting worldwide for parents and child development experts alike.
In this module, we’ll walk you through a few exercises that will help you understand the long term results of different parenting styles, as well as how you can begin your Positive Discipline journey helping your child develop specific characteristics and life skills that will serve them throughout their life.
Module 3 is about the different discipline methods you can or have used to get your child to behave in an appropriate way or to teach them skills. We’ll show you what children learn from each of these methods so you can decide if it’s a method you want to use.
Kind and firm can feel like a difficult concept, but with our examples and exercises throughout Module 4, you’ll feel completely capable of practicing this in your own family. Kind and firm at the same time is one of the cornerstones of Positive Discipline, and once you master this, you’re well on your way to being the parent you want to be.
Not every moment of every day is going to be perfect - for you OR your child. Which is why we have tools and strategies to manage behaviors and situations that haven’t been fully learned yet. From redirection methods to how to recover from mistakes to resetting as a family and building solution-focused plans, this module will give you incredibly valuable tools and strategies to continue moving forward.
With over 30 individual tools throughout this course, you will leave having an entire suite of options at your disposal that are appropriate for every situation you could come across as your child grows. In Module 6, we’ll give you examples, stories, situations and strategies that you can use throughout your daily life to meet each one of your goals.
Throughout all of these modules, we’re sharing REAL parenting stories from our own experience and those of our clients. We’ll tell you exactly what to do to use these tools in your own life, step-by-step, and give valuable insight on how to make it work for you.
It’s all here.

They say it takes a village to raise a child - and they don’t mean that you need an entire town full of babysitters on call.
It means that when you have the opportunity to learn from others that have accomplished what you want to achieve…
It’s a good idea to do it.
But just in case you’re still on the fence, I’m including my 7-Day Risk Free Promise:

Positive Discipline is the one parenting style that can help you quickly solve behavior problems in your child AND maintain that improvement long-term. We’ve got the history, research, and proven success to back it up.
It’s the main behavioral approach in over 20,000+ Montessori schools worldwide. It’s used in countless other classrooms, by millions of parents, and is recommended by the majority of child development experts, education professionals, and psychologists and psychiatrists.
And studies using the Positive Discipline techniques have been carried out in classrooms from the late 1970s through today, all showing improved behavior, attitudes, and performance - as well as decreased disciplinary actions like suspensions.
But what’s truly remarkable are the changes in parents.
In 2021, a study was conducted with parents who completed a Positive Discipline training program - and found:
But most of all: they felt they were more successful at parenting their children.
Even though the dreams we have when we first become a parent may be wildly unrealistic… that doesn’t mean parenting has to be a nightmare.
It IS possible to enjoy your child, to continually strengthen your relationship, and to work as a team to build the skills and confidence your child needs to be successful throughout his or her life.
It’s absolutely possible to get through an entire week of mornings without yelling, and to watch as your child rises to the challenge that you create together… and blossoms in front of your very eyes.
It’s doable for you, even if you have no experience or positive role models for how you want to parent.
It won’t be easy. You’ll have forward and backward moments, times when you just can’t keep yourself under control (we’ll help you with that, too), and days when it feels like one argument after another.
BUT with Positive Discipline, those days will become less frequent and stressful because you’ll have tools on your side to make the right moves.
You’re finally getting the manual you’ve always wanted for parenting your child.

Mary and I are overjoyed that you’re joining us on the Positive Discipline journey, and I know once you start using these strategies with your child… joy will be a common experience in your home.
