presents effective techniques for raising
responsible, independent children. PWD teaches parents and
caregivers to rethink their approach to discipline, punishment and
empowerment. PWD advocates permitting children make some of their own
decisions, and to experience the consequences early on, so that they can act
responsibly when alone, and become more independent when they grow older.
Fundamental to the Parenting With Dignity curriculum is a focus on
developing parenting skills that help to address many of the child abuse

children. The entire nine volume parenting curriculum is based upon one central idea:
