“Resources For Alternative Discipline Methods”

This post is a follow up top my previous post regarding the legalities of spanking in California, which can be found here: http://swansonodell.sitesdev.net/2016/05/04/is-spanking-legal-in-california/

If you find yourself in a situation where spanking must be replaced with other discipline methods, either by court order or as a preventative measure, I recommend reading the following resources:

The Discipline Book: How to Have a Better-Behaved Child From Birth to Age Ten Paperback – February 15, 1995
by Martha Sears and William Sears

1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 Paperback – September 1, 2014
by Thomas W. Phelan

Both books are useful and can be found easily in places like Amazon or Barnes & Noble. As with anything, you may have to experiment with a few new methods to find one that works for you. The bottom line is that raising kids is hard and time consuming, even when you don’t have a separated household. Get the best tools you can, and I wish you the best success.
