We have worked with many mothers, who all wanted to feel that they are good and capable parents.
The question about disciplining children came up many times in our conversations with parents. Some parents are afraid of disciplining their children, others may think discipline is the way to win the battle or to let the children know who’s the boss. Parents ask “do we have the right to discipline our children and what are the helpful ways other parents use to discipline children without using physical punishment?”
What is Discipline?
Discipline does not mean punishment. It isa teaching/learning process where parents have a wonderful opportunity to teach their children how to manage their own behaviours in a safe, caring, loving and trusting environment so they learn to become independent adults who can act responsibly.
