I'm working on my blog series and for my current article I am writing an introduction to AP using the eight principles. Principle Seven is "Practice Positive Discipline". Am I correct in thinking that PD and GD are on in the same? If not, how are they different?

Positive Discipline is one flavor of Gentle Discipline. Gentle Disciple is really a cover term for a range of discipline approaches from Positive Discipline to Consentual Living and a lot of things in between.

You'll find some people on this board find PD too coercive in that they use time outs and there's a definite parental hierarchy. However, PD shares with GD a respect for the child and a commitment to no violence against children.

Personally, I'm more on the PD side of things than some of the more consentual approaches.
