Anyone know of any gentle discipline DVDs? I have some books but I have no time to study them and I tend to learn better by watching demonstrations anyway.
I keep trying to compile a list that I can give out, but it's not that easy to keep up. Some resources disappear and others appear. This is as current as I have. I miss the old "stickies" that we had under the previous software. It would be really nice to keep a running list of this somewhere.
Note that most of the videos are "talking heads" as it's pretty hard to get real live discipline instances on film.
DVDs (some are available only through the author's/organization's website, others through more standard outlets); listed alphabetically by author's last name.
- Becky Bailey: Conscious Discipline
- Consciouslyparenting.com has videos and audio interviews (either classes you sign up for, or on demand ones -- note that it takes a few steps to access these).
- Heather Forbes: Beyond Consequences Live on DVD (available only through her website: beyondconsequences.com)
- Ross Greene: Parenting The Explosive Child and Calming the Tempest: Helping the Explosive Child
- Alfie Kohn: Unconditional Parenting
- Gordon Neufield: Making Sense of Discipline (plus "Hold onto Your Kids" but I don't really consider that a discipline book per se)
- Gordon Neufield: The Power to Parent. A three video series that includes the Vital Connection, Helping Children Grow up and Common Challenges. I believe videos can be purchased individually
- Thomas Phelan: 1-2-3 Magic (I don't particularly care for this, but it doesn't advocate spanking or harsh punishment)
- Dan Siegel: Parenting from the Inside Out (you can choose the 10 hour or the 2 hour version on his website!)
