Discipline, Correction, and Punishment. How they are very different things.
How most times, these concepts are completely confused and how there really are more things that just spanking.
Stories from both Jeff and Trey on failures, successes, and what we did about them.
Today I saw a meme on Facebook (see right) that insinuated that to stop kids from becoming gangsta delinquents, we need to spank them more. Now, I get that many interpret this as "more kids need solid discipline" but there is a pervasive misunderstanding what punishment is.
Today Jeff and I touch on the tough topic of discipline, correction and punishment. Jeff summarized it best when he said:
"kids deserve to be disciplined. They deserve to be corrected. But no kid deserves to be punished."
Today we cover why that is and how you can absolutely set good boundaries with kids without needing to "beat it into them" and how this also doesn't make you a laissez-faire, do whatever you want parent. Also, I highly recommend you check out Jeff's blog on this (see below). It has WAY more good stuff in it that we couldn't get to.
Discipline, Correction, and Punishment - a wonderful blog topic written by Jeff.
