In the parenting feature, author and transformational coach Mia Von Scha chats about why we shouldn't put kids in a time-out and talks about alternative ways to discipline children.
Von Scha says that firstly, we have to understand what it is that we're trying to obtain by sending our children to the naughty corner.
What we want to do is have our children grow up into responsible human beings who can get on with other people and live in society.— Mia Von Scha, transformational coach
When you send a child to the naughty corner, they normally think about anger, revenge or self-pity says Von Scha.
She adds that parents need to understand where that behavior is coming from because a child who is loved, secure and confident doesn’t normally cause trouble.
I have never come across a child that sits in a naughty corner and reflects about how their behavior could improve in the future.— Mia Von Scha, transformational coach
