Positive Discipline  – Physical punishment of children (sometimes called corporal punishment) is not an effective discipline technique.  Mounting evidence demonstrates that it contributes to an acceptance of violence in our society and is a risk factor for a number of life-long problems.  See the link below for a booklet that provides some history on discipline and focuses on positive discipline and parenting without physical punishment.

Positive Discipline of Older Children – The purpose of discipline is to teach children about the rules and values of our society and to help them become self- disciplined. This approach helps them grow into happy, responsible adults. This guide offers suggestions for positive discipline techniques that should be used rather than spanking or other forms of physical punishment that can result in physical, emotional and developmental harm.

Positive Discipline of Young Children – The purpose of discipline is to teach children about the rules and values of our society and to help them become self-disciplined. This approach helps them grow into happy, responsible adults. This brochure provides problem-solving techniques that help establish a process for preventing misbehaviour.

Positive Parenting of Infants – No infant should ever be spanked, shaken or scolded. At this stage of development, shaking or spanking a baby can do serious damage, including brain damage or death. Babies cannot understand consequences for their behaviour. This guide explains techniques and strategies that can help you to safely guide the development of your baby.
