Many parents would like to get more information on how they can deal with difficult behaviour without resorting to smacking. The Foundation Years website has now been updated to include links to resources for parents on effective positive discipline from the Children Are Unbeatable! Alliance, the Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment of Children and the NSPCC.
Using positive forms of discipline reduces stress and improves relationships between children and their parents and carers. If you would like to support the campaign against physical punishment, you can sign up on the Children Are Unbeatable! Alliance website.
