The title says it all.  I am looking for some Positive Parenting/ Gentle Discipline orientated resources.  I'd specifically like Facebook pages, Google + pages, people/organizations to follow on Twitter, and sites that send a daily e-mail with articles and/or thoughts about gentle discipline.  Podcasts would also be great.  Any other resources that you can think of would be appreciated.

Subbing!  We have a book resource list, but this would be stellar if we could get an online resource list going as well!!

Wonderful list!  Just wanted to sub in and say that The Daily Groove (first link) is my FAVORITE parenting resource.  I am constantly forwarding the emails to other people.

Wow, Breathless Wonder! That is an exhaustive list - Janet Lansbury is my personal favorite. I don't think I saw these 3 listed though (although they may have been and I missed it):

 

http://www.facebook.com/TheWayOfThePeacefulParent

 

http://www.facebook.com/HeatherTForbesLCSW  or beyondconsequences.com

 

http://www.facebook.com/TEACHthroughLOVE

 

And for podcasts:

 

http://www.loaradionetwork.com/sandi-schwartz.html - (or on Itunes Leading Edge Parenting Show - Sandi Schwartz) She interviews a different parenting expert each week - all of them with positive/gentle bent.

They weren't listed Gretchen!  Thanks!  I'm seeing lots of really great articles and blogs from the pages that I found.  There was a great one yesterday about age appropriate chores!

You are welcome. Sorry - I just thought of a few more - hopefully this will complete my brain dump:

 

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Real-Child-Development/151656511566487 - or realchilddevelopment.com - gentle mom of 3 currently on a mission in Costa Rica.

 

http://www.littleheartsbooks.com/ - or on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/littleheartsbooks - She writes beautiful articles about gentle parenting that are on her site as well as her Little Hearts Books - and a mom of 6 ranging from 24 years old - to 19 months! She just posted a great article about kids hitting on Facebook which reminded me I had forgot to put her on the list.

 

and http://www.facebook.com/pages/Simplicity-Parenting/257701525127

 

and I thought this one was on Facebook too but can't find it there so here's just the website: http://demandeuphoria.blogspot.com/ - Another gentle mother with some very print-worthy blog posts about discipline.
