Violent punishment an option for parents?

15 Jul

Of course, today’s psychologists confidently say «no». But is this the situation in most Ukrainian families? Not yet — although local and international experts keep working on the problem, spreading the word and discussing alternative parenting methods. This was particularly in the focus of the conference «Childhood without violence» that took place in Ternopil this spring. Managed by Arena CS and funded and supported by a number of Ukrainian and foreign institutions, the conference also included an exhibition, a film screening, a fair and several flashmobs, thus bringing the issue out to the public.
