Kids and Discipline

In this video Dr. Karen Rancourt presents a case for why and how parents can call upon others to help teach their children discipline. She gives several examples of how she and other parents have used people who are part of their children’s extended community to assist parents in a very proactive way when the usual discipline measures are not working, or seem to be making the situation even worse.  Join Dr. Rancourt in this segment to learn why, once parents understand the appropriate use of village helpers, they may find disciplining their children easier and more effective.
