Discipline with Love so We Don’t Break Our Children’s Spirit

Presented By: Monica Irvine

Discipline is a topic I get the most questions about, and a topic that so many parents are struggling to find balance with. What is effective, age-appropriate punishment? When is talking about it enough? What age is too old or too young for certain discipline? And the list goes on.

Join me as we discuss essential principles that we must understand before discipline can be effective. Parents, if we’re not careful, even with the best of intentions, we can absolutely damage our children’s precious spirits. You will be so grateful that you attended.
