Nonviolent Parenting approach is founded by Ruth Beaglehole, based on the tradition of nonviolence was championed by Gandhi and Martin Luther King, which means we respect the basic human rights and dignity of every human being, at very age. We believe that power in any relationship should be used protectively and not to control, and that violence is anything that hurts the body, mind or spirit or another human being. Based on these principles and understanding the importance of a nurturing attachment between caregiver and child for healthy development, nonviolent child raising focuses on connection rather than compliance in the adult/child relationship.
IPNB is “a term coined by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., whose work very much influences what we do. IPNB studies how a person’s brain, mind, and relationships interact to shape who that person is. As opposed to merely helping parents and kids learn to “manage” their problems, we want to educate them about these dynamic interactions and help them understand that to a great extent, they can affect the way they view and feel about and interact with their world.”
RIE is founded by Magda Gerber, whose basic approach is respect. We not only respect babies, we demonstrate our respect every time we interact with them. Respecting a child means treating even the youngest infant as a unique human being, not as an object.
