nyc dads and positive discipline

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Recently I was very lucky to sit down with a group of NYC fathers and their little ones to discuss positive discipline at appleseeds in Chelsea. NYC dads is a Meetup group that has been expanding wildly and is now 200+ families strong, and growing!  We talked about the difficulties surrounding discipline and knowing the “right” way to handle each and every situation (think playground politics).  Being a parent awakens many thoughts/feelings/memories from our own childhoods that often need to be worked through.  If we aren’t prepared for this, the who journey can feel overwhelming and needlessly difficult. It was such a joy to be able to talk with a group of fathers who were interested in being proactive with their kids and being the best teachers possible. Oh, and their tots were too cute for school! Thanks NYC Dads!!
