Non-Violent Parenting Programs Effective

Parent Interventions

A study done in rural Thailand by researchers of School of Medicine, Walailak University showed that non-violent parenting programs are effective in raising awareness about better ways to discipline the child rather than following the traditional harsh method of yelling, spanking or hitting children with objects with the intention to punish or discipline the child. Physical and verbal abuse leads to harmful consequences for the child's behaviour. The study was conducted among 85 subjects with 43 i the control group and 42 in the intervention group. The knowledge about effective parenting techniques improved in the intervention group when it was given in three-month intervals for three times. Their attitude towards corporal punishment also changed compared to the control group.
