As a mother of six and a grandmother of eleven children, author Judy Helm Wright knows family dynamics.

You can manage a problem or prevent it from occurring all together. Would you rather empty a bucket from underneath a dripping faucet or fix the leak? Choosing modes of correction is the prior, whereas disciplining is the latter.

Screaming and spanking are not teachers, but rather modes of correction (ineffective ones, at that). They don’t teach children to stop a behavior, just to get better at hiding it.

Disciplining through peaceful methods models dignity, respect and kindness. These values will, in turn, be instilled in and modeled by your children. The key aspect of discipline is to teach, not punish. Through natural and logical consequences rather than punishment, your child will learn desirable behavior.
