Parenting without punishment

Benefits of Non-Punitive Parenting

The parent-child relationship is above all, a love relationship, and we beleive that punishment has no place in any love relationship. We teach parents and caregivers about building relationships with their children, yet, seldom show the benefits of such a philosophy of the democratic, collaborative, parenting style.
