Early Childhood Discipline: A Review of the Literature
Firmin, Michael W.; Castle, Sally L.
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v17 n1 p107-129 2008
In this literature review concerning early childhood discipline we particularly highlight American children's discipline with respect to historical perspectives, generational theories, gender issues, parental styles, methods of discipline, and corporal punishment. We also address corporal punishment's history, the debate among experts, beliefs and practices among parents, the controversy in public schools, religious influences, and a conflation of the issues.
