Conscious Discipline Classes Offered to Parents in Alpena, Alcona, & Montmorency


Alpena-Montmorency-Alcona Educational Service District’s Great Parents, Great Start Program Facilitator, Heather Nordenbrock, an Independent Facilitator of the Loving Guidance, will be presenting the "Conscious Discipline Program" on December 3, 5, 10, 12, and 17from 1:30 p.m.-3 p.m. at the AMA-ESD Building, 2118 US 23 South, Alpena (across from Pizza Hut)

Based on current research, Conscious Discipline can teach both parents and children to:

  • Set goals and achieve them despite obstacles and distractions (instead of yelling, nagging, sending to time out or removal of privileges).

  • Create safe homes by managing our emotions instead of acting them out (instead of adults losing tempers, children throwing tantrums, name-calling, hitting or destroying property).

  • Set personal boundaries to prevent bullying and encourage respectful interactions (instead of telling others how they should think, should feel or should act).

  • Resolve conflict in a way that creates closer, more loving relationships (instead of pretending issues don’t exist or having them tear us apart).

Parents, teachers, and child care providers welcome.   This program and all materials are offered free of charge.  (Please note that child care is NOT provided.Registration is limited.)

Please register with Heather Nordenbrock by Friday, November 30.  You can register by mail at 2118 US 23 South, Alpena, MI 49707, e-mail at or by phone at (989)354-3101 extension 121.  You will be notified if your registration is not accepted.
