Peaceful parenting: Disciplining our children

Let me be clear.  Violence isn’t the answer. Never has been. Get this: violence is learned.  Many of us just do what’s been done to us without questioning it. On the other hand, peaceful parenting requires a necessary shift. When that occurs spanking and other forms of abuse (think: emotional, psychological, physical…) are out.
