Here are 7 tried and true steps to bridging the gap and taming the frustrations.
Step 1: Establish the TRUE goal
When talking about discipline the goal isn't as simple as deciding to spank or not to spank or to punish vs redirect. The goal is NOT to decide on these methods. These methods are the options on achieving your goal, but these are not the CORE goals.The true goal is actually to raise an emotionally healthy and socially responsible child.
Parents may be bogged down in the conflict and parents may misread the goal as to spank vs not to spank.
