More and more parents are discovering, that conventional approaches to discipline (such as praise & reward systems, punishment for bad behavior) often don’t work and can even lead to more frustration, resentment, and power struggles at home and in the classroom. Parenting expert Sarah Ockwell-Smith, discusses her new book “GENTLE DISCIPLINE: Using Emotional Connection – Not Punishment – to Raise Confident, Capable Kids”. In this pioneering approach, parents learn to break the cycle of repeating what they’ve  always done, and find a more effective, positive, and individualized method that takes into account not just the child’s behavior, triggers, and development, but also the parent’s triggers and negative influences. 

This Big Blend Radio interview originally aired live on, on Sept. 17. 2017.
