Discipline Coaching

What is Discipline Coaching?

Do you find it challenging to strike a balance between encouraging your child’s independence and individuality, while setting limits and teaching them to follow rules?  It can be exhausting and frustrating when your child does not listen or refuses to follow directions.  At Bright Side of the Moon, we believe in a positive approach to discipline that does not involve bribery or punishment.  First, we use the science of applied behavior analysis to assess your child’s behavior and develop a comprehensive behavior plan.  Then, our discipline coaches will teach you to use positive reinforcement and effective consequences to improve your child’s behavior.  Our ultimate goal is to create an environment where both you and your child feel successful and confident.

How It Works

Many parents are unsure of how to discipline their child when they engage in challenging behavior. We work with you to discover the cause of the problem and find a solution that fits with your family’s preferences and values. All of our packages begin with a comprehensive assessment to identify your concerns and create a customized plan. Our consultations are individualized to meet the needs of you and your child.

Can You Help My Child?

Bright Side of the Moon discipline coaches have extensive experience with a wide range of behavior issues, including refusing to follow directions, throwing tantrums, difficulty waiting, trouble with transitions, not following routines, and failure to follow rules in the community. Our packages are designed to address the needs of individuals of all ages, including those with special needs.
