The Latin root of discipline means "to teach," while the Latin root of punishment means, "to inflict pain." Let's practice more humane ways of teaching our children our version of "right" and "wrong" instead of trying to "inflict pain." They will thank you. Their children will thank you. And their children's children will thank you.
My process of Empowerment Parenting provides an alternative to physical discipline that works to help parents be the kind of parents they want to be, while raising happy, responsible and respectful children.
