Discipline Don'ts: The Better Mental Health Show Episode 11

Children have to know that there's a consequence. And so hitting, spanking, using some sort of physical punishment...we'll talk about is establishing the consequence, so that the child knows when they make the wrong choice, willingly, they're accepting what is coming and then they'll learn from that and move forward.
In the latest episode of The Better Mental Health Show, Dr. Christopher Fasano delves into the topic of disciplining children, exploring the evolution of discipline methods and the dangers of yelling as a discipline technique. Drawing on the American Academy of Pediatrics' new policy on adversive discipline, Dr. Fasano outlines alternative strategies to promote early mental wellness and establish consequences for children's actions. He emphasizes the importance of teaching children responsibility and choice-making, using positive reinforcement, and setting realistic expectations.
By avoiding physical punishment and focusing on consequences, parents and caregivers can help their children learn from their mistakes and move forward in a healthy way. Listen to the full episode now on alcoholfree.com!
