DO POSITIVE PARENTING METHODS WORK?

Positive parenting (also called Positive Guidance or Positive Discipline) is a parenting method and a belief that kids should be raised through positive and loving encouragement,resisting all temptations to be punitive or to punish kids with fear, shame, any form of violence etc.

Does Positive Parenting work?

Yes. Studies suggest that strict child rearing practices, which include physical punishment, spanking and controlling behavior with fear, result in children being more aggressive, antisocial, depressive and unhappy. Most teens who exhibit risky behavior (gangs, drugs, alcohol, criminal records, teen pregnancy) are brought up in families with strict discipline, physical punishment, aggression, psychological humiliation, shame etc.
