Breaking the Cycle
While punitive discipline practices including spanking and time-outs are still common practices, these fear and shame-based methods are widely acknowledged by early childhood experts and mental health professionals as ineffective and harmful to children's long-term health and well-being.
The negative cycle of punitive discipline is often repeated and passed down to the next generation. Breaking this generational cycle of using toxic discipline practices in the home and school setting requires us to support parents and caregivers worldwide with evidence-based tools, support, and education that make connecting with kids and raising them with compassion, love, and respectful boundaries, a habit.
