Quick Answers...


What are some alternatives to spanking?
 

Physical alternatives to spanking include gently taking children by the hand and redirecting them, picking them up gently or holding them to remove or keep them from a dangerous situation and to get their attention. Non-physical alternatives include distracting, ignoring, and using natural and logical consequences, depending upon the situation and the child.
