The news is busy this week with all kinds of articles on parents the one that caught my
attention was the husband and wife team who apparently had their son kneel on a bathroom floor for nine hours and was given a liquid diet for misbehaving in school.
My classes are full each week with parents who are at their wits end with what to do when it comes to disciplining their child. Some do what their parents did, some come up with something crazy, and some does nothing at all for the most part we at the parenting training network want to believe that the parents are good parents, but just need some good advice so here goes.
The parent's guide to New York State Child Abuse and Neglect laws state the following categories.
Emotional Abuse- Failure of a parent or caregiver to supply a child with the love,
and support necessary for healthy emotional development.
Physical Abuse- Inflicting or allowing someone to inflict physical injury other than by accidental means.
Physical Neglect- The failure by a parent or caregiver to provide food,clothing, or shelter. It also includes abandonment inadequate supervision of a child by a parent or caregiver, and excessive corporal punishment.
So what do you think ABUSE OR NOT ABUSE? Looking forward to your replies.
