Verbal reasoning may not always have positive effect on children: Study

“Verbal reasoning was associated with higher levels of getting along with others, but also with increased aggression and higher levels of distraction. Positive discipline does not always seem to have all that many positive benefits”
And then…. “Meanwhile, children did not get along with other children and showed higher levels of aggression, and became distracted when parents took away privileges.”
Looks like everyone is going to have to go back to parenting classes for the latest theories on raising their kids. Perhaps we should just ask our grandparents. They seemed to do a good job. 😊
Parents, take note! Explaining to your child why their behaviour is wrong may not always have the intended positive effect if the parent is loud and abrupt, a new study suggested.
The findings of the study were published in the journal ‘International Journal of Behavioral Development’.
Research conducted globally shows that spanking is not the best option. But verbal reasoning, which explains why the behaviour is wrong, may not always have the intended positive effect if the parent is loud and abrupt, according to the study, led by the University of Michigan.
The findings indicate both positive and negative outcomes that could have lasting consequences on children’s emotional development. Verbal reasoning was associated with higher levels of getting along with others, but also with increased aggression and higher levels of distraction.
“Positive discipline does not always seem to have all that many positive benefits,” said Andrew Grogan-Kaylor, professor of social work and lead author of the study published in the latest issue of International Journal of Behavioral Development.
“It is more likely that the long-term investments that parents make in children, such as spending time with them, letting them know they are loved, and listening to them, have more positive effects than nonviolent discipline. This has yet to be thoroughly researched in a global context,” added Grogan-Kaylor.
