Discipline Meme--This is What it is About

My lovely friend ReadingMommy created this beautiful photo that so perfectly describes what gentle discipline is about.  There have been so many ugly, shaming, punitive memes floating around.  I am delighted that she made this one and graciously allowed me to share it.  <3  I believe that gentle discipline "works" for our children, but I know that it is working in me to build character, maturity and grace.

Thank you some much for speaking up for children!!! And saying their is another way.

I am 19 yrs old and was raised in a homeschooled christian home that believes that punishments are needed. Growing up in that really messed me up and I don't really have a close relationship with my parents even know they are really wonderful people.
I wouldn't want another child to have the problems that I have. It has been so hard because I have been having to parent myself and break free from that messed up paradigm.

So for all the parents out there!!!
Please don't spank your kids or use other punishments. Treat your children with the same courtesy that you would treat anyone else.

How you treat the most weak and helpless persons, will also effect how you treat everyone elso.

I was spanked and I'm Not Okay!!!!!
