In Episode 9, the WAGNN team discusses parental discipline. Discipline is a controversial topic that varies across cultures, beliefs, and the influence of life experiences. Often time, parents, guardians, or caregivers have misconceptions about disciplining children. Is there a place for discipline? Is there a wrong and right way to discipline your child? The WAGNN team tackles these questions and more.
With the numerous headlines that have become national news with the growing deaths of children at the hands of their caregivers, WAGNN opens the conversation with appropriate versus inappropriate ways of disciplining children. This topic will help parents review their techniques to envoke a dialogue to ensure the safety of our children.
Parents are also unaware of their disciplinary rights to correct unwanted behavior. Most states have a penal code that puts this topic into perspective. This code is researchable by State as it relates to disciplining children.
Also, in episode 9, the WAGNN ladies give personal accounts of disciplinary experiences and the lessons learned from their parental tactics. The ladies discuss different tactics their parents used or practice themselves with their family members. The information is shared to provide insight for parents wanting to figure out if they are teaching their children properly through discipline. Though there is not a perfect answer, parents should know that each child is different and require different levels of attention.
We also challenge parents to have conversations with their children and set expectations they are to follow. Also, discipline is a progressional form of teaching and not a one-shot deal. Children require attention, training, and verbal reaffirmation about their behavior. Lastly, discipline begins when the child can understand on their level a form of right and wrong. We sometimes underestimate the level of understanding our children possess. Tune in to hear the full podcast and enjoy!
