Ruth Buffam

Ruth BuffamI have an educational background in early childhood and educational psychology and have spent over 20 years working with children in various settings including early childhood settings, elementary school classrooms and special education settings.  My husband and I have raised 3 sons and are experiencing the joy of grand parenting!

A few years ago I discovered the Positive Discipline Program by Dr. Jane Nelsen.  A while later, I met and took training from Jane and through her support & friendship, I developed a website positivediscipline.ca with the goal of making Positive Discipline resources more accessible to Canadians.

My passion for Positive Discipline has continued to grow and motivated me to take the necessary steps to become Canada’s first Positive Discipline Trainer.

As a Positive Discipline Trainer, the major focus of my work life is to make the world a better place for children and those who love and care for them. I believe that every child has the potential to succeed and that every child’s voice needs to be heard.

I would be delighted to bring a workshop and resources to your child care setting! I also provide conference keynotes and breakout sessions.

Please check out this website for further information about what I can offer you or your organization and please contact me if you require further information.
