How to Discipline a Toddler without Yelling


Pauline  Peck

With Pauline Peck

Frame therapist Pauline Peck responds to a submitted question on ways to discipline your toddler without spanking or yelling. She outlines several examples of ways you can speak to your toddler, along with the "why" it can work!

Dear Therapist: I’ve tried telling my toddler “no” over and over again. I go to great lengths to explain the reason behind my instructions. And as frustrating as his bad behavior is, I don’t like the idea of hitting his hand or yelling to finally get his attention. How do I get my child to listen to me? How can I discipline him without hitting or yelling?
