    Discipline need not be punitive! Children’s immediate desires often conflict with those of the adults who care for them. This brochure discusses positive ways in which parents and caregivers can reduce typical difficulties by employing positive solutions to guide children’s behavior. As children grow older, maintaining reasonable expectations and respecting children’s feelings are important for nurturing their self-control and emotional health.

Great for families, too.
