Parenting feature: ‘Positive discipline and managing difficult misbehavior’ by John Sharry

Parents are often confused about how much to discipline their children. There are so many confusing messages out there about what rules you should set for children and when you should let them decide for themselves. Parents are unsure as to whether to let their children express their angry emotions or whether they should insist they keep them in check. A lot of this confusion stems from different models of parenting that have historical origins.
