USA, June 25, 2009: Jane Nelsen, an expert in education and the author of “Positive Discipline,” is launching in her website a group for Hindu parents seeking advice on how to educate their children. They can share their experiences and ask for expert guidance, connecting with loving parents everywhere.
Hinduism Today’s founder, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, years ago started a campaign to help parents raising their children to be positive and confident. He found an expert ally in Jane Nelsen, a specialist in disciplining children with love and not fear. Jane asks, “Where did we ever get the crazy idea that children will do better if we first make them feel worse? Please absorb that statement. It doesn’t make any sense at all--yet it is the basis for punishment. A misbehaving child is a discouraged child.”
Subramuniyaswami was adamantly against corporal punishment, as is his successor, Hinduism Today’s publisher Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami. Following his intructions, Hinduism Today created the acclaimed “Parenting with Love” insight, marrying Jane Nelsen’s experience with Hindu traditions.
