Restorative Parenting

Restorative parenting. No spoon or beef tongue please.

Restorative parenting.  No spoon or beef tongue please.

The spoon represents the punitive style of social discipline and while it may have had the had the desired affect of discouraging my undesirable behavior by tapping into my fear of something unwanted being done TO me, it didn't teach me why we had rules, how the rules contributed to our family, or how I could use my actions to be a valuable member of our family. Frankly, it didn't empowered me in anyway.
