Finger art of family during quarrel.

In February 2017, we are launching a series of weekly blog posts addressing discipline and parenting practices. In this series, we will explore:

  • reasons that parents choose among discipline approaches,
  • the science behind those techniques, and
  • alternative approaches to discipline.

You can find the list of posts below.

  2. A Tale of Two Tantrums – Joan E.  Durrant, PhD (University of Manitoba)
  3. Can You Discipline Your Child Without Using Punishment? – Alan E. Kazdin, PhD, ABPP (Yale University)
