presented by BabyDustDiaries.com

The ParentingGently.com site is a safe place to share gentle parenting questions and answers from parents, and the carnival includes fresh new viewpoints on Gentle Discipline, as well as giveaways. I, personally, am giving away a couple of 8×10 prints.

I am honored to have worked out an agreement with BabyDustDiaries.com for them to use Home as the visual banner for this event ~ thank you to Paige for contacting me with her idea.

Please join ParentingGently.com all week, June 27-July 1, 2011, as they explore alternatives to punitive discipline. They have collected a wonderful array of articles and essays about the negative effects of punitive discipline methods, like spanking, and a myriad of effective alternatives. Please visit their writers each day of the Carnival. New articles will be posted on the following theme days:

June 27 – Practical Tips for Getting Started with Gentle Discipline

June 28 – It’s All About Feelings: Respecting Emotions and Consensual Living
