You can also view these videos and my discipline series at my Youtube channel. The video on spanking has had more than 19,000 views. Spanking is a critical issue for many parents and can be a controversial among professionals.

You can also take the free online noncredit “conversational courses” found at my WonderWise Parent website. A Course on Helping may be significant because of its association with caring.
