Discipline without damage doesn’t mean without limits, boundaries or growing up

    Often times when people hear that children shouldn’t be given consequences or put in time out, but rather understood empathically and championed developmentally, they get worried! Usually the worry is that this means it is going to be Disneyland-party time parenting with kids who rule the roost. Here Dr. Vanessa shares how this is definitely not the case, that compassionate parenting is full of rules and boundaries, and just how to go about it all so you can strike the balance of being both firm and kind.
