What’s Wrong with Spanking – Brochure


“Discipline doesn't begin until children are old enough to understand it. Babies don't need discipline. Never shake or spank a baby.” The first few years of a child's life are the most important for healthy growth and development.

Parents often feel unsure about how to handle their child's behaviour. Most parents feel like spanking their children at times.

PHAC’s free “What’s Wrong with Spanking” brochure explains why spanking actually doesn't work and gives tips on how to effectively discipline children without spanking. The brochure can be ordered from PHAC, or the information is available online.
