My name is Abi I have also worked as a teacher in London and Barcelona for over 10 years. Before this I studied neuroscience in both the UK and Spain. Most recently, I have worked with my partner to develop a Montessori Center here in Barcelona for our two young children.
I became interested in Positive Discipline after reading about the technique and it’s relevance to the Montessori philosophy.
Positive Discipline was developed by Dr. Jane Nelson and originally based on work by a psychologist, Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs, back in the early 20th century.
For me, positive discipline puts into words much of what I have learned through experience from working with children and adolescents, and even adults!
