Difference between discipline and punishment, part 1

Continuing the theme of Child Abuse Prevention Month, we're tackling the difference between discipline and punishment, as shared by Circle of Parents.

Punishment and discipline are different in what they do and how they are done.

Punishment, on the other hand, just stops bad behavior now and doesn't help a child learn how to behave correctly.

Stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow...
