To spank or not to spank. The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly urges parents against spanking or other forms of physical punishment as a discipline technique. Remember there is no evidence that physical punishment improves a child’s behavior; and it is more likely that physical punishment can have negative consequences on your child’s development.
My only peaceful haven is the after-school program run by The Family Tree. There, I can talk about my feelings with other young people and learn how to manage my anger.
