Positive Discipline Is More Productive Than Corporal Punishment

ANPPCAN Kenya, (African Network for protection and Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect earned out training workshops in Western Kenya region in the year 2008. The purpose of the training was aimed at equipping child service providers and organizations to fund alternative measures in connecting children away from corporal punishment. Discipline positively was seen to be more preferred as opposed to the negative cruel instilling of pain through corporal punishment. This was to go in hand with the new law that is against child abuse as enshrined in the children Act 2001.As a result some amount of awareness has been uploaded among service centers which has put to check the abusive old fashionable tyrannical manner in which children were handled.
