Understanding Discipline versus Punishment

To teach or to inflict pain; which is the role and responsibility of adults parenting children? How do the methods of "teaching" right from wrong and appropriate social behavior impact children’s ability to comply?

With the facilitation of Vickie Marshall, a Marriage and Family Therapist and member of The Stephan Center training team, men who are fathering explore methods of effective "discipline" and the negative impact of "punishment."

Areas of discussion include:

  • Understanding anger
  • Reacting to children’s behavior with anger
  • The primary focus of discipline
  • Effective methods of “teaching” rules and responsibilities
  • Understanding methods of discipline from different cultures and prior experiences
