The argument that unless a child is smacked they will be out of control supposes that if we’re not hitting, then we aren’t providing discipline, structure, boundaries, and limits.
Yes, children need limits. It is fair to have behavioural expectations for them. They need to be taught, shown good ways to act, and guided toward moral behaviour. But hitting is the least effective way to control children. Practically every disciplinary strategy is better!
We can do better than we have done in the past. It’s time to draw a line in the sand and say, simply, “We don’t do that here anymore.”
Join Dr Justin Coulson, one of Australia’s leading parenting experts, for a webinar that explodes the myth that discipline has to hurt. In this 60-minute discipline deep-dive you’ll:
- Learn to differentiate between discipline and punishment
- Discover why smacking, yelling, time-out, withdrawal of privileges, and grounding are lousy discipline strategies that can do damage
- Uncover a new no-damage approach to discipline that builds relationships, improves children’s behaviour, and makes parenting easier!
