This is so powerful:
“‘But how will my children learn without punishment?’ Think of all the millions of things she has learned since birth- how to sit up, how to talk, how to dress herself, how to count, how to read. You did not need to cause pain for her to learn.
Children are born to learn. Punishment only gets in the way.
Punishing your child for misbehavior makes no more sense than punishing him for not perfectly grasping trigonometry. To teach, you model and explain as they are ready to learn. Show them how. Then you let them practice as long as they need to get it right, with loving encouragement and creative interaction.
They just need examples, practice, patience and LOVE.” -Dulce Chale 💙If this inspires you and you're interested to learn more, check out my YouTube videos on the Gentle Parenting Series I started a while back. (More to come in the future!)
