Positive parenting resists the temptation to be retaliatory or revengeful. It means, that instead of offering negative discipline, you are offering a positive form of discipline that guides children to make sure that stay on the correct path.
Reinforcing reward systems and good behavior produces better results than punishments and harsh discipline.
By using positive parenting techniques, you help your children feel better about their good choices and want to repeat them. Rather than find ways to avoid punishment, your children will choose positive behavior.
Positive parenting doesn’t mean that there is a lack of discipline though. In order to be a positive parent, you have to accept the negative behavior and correct it.
Correction must be done in a manner that encourages the repetition of positive behaviors, instead of avoidance of the consequences.

By choosing positive parenting, you will be raising considerate, happy and responsible young children. Life is free of fright, undue discipline, and fear, and the parenting guilt can be minimized.
