Threats, yelling, and punishments are among the most used forms of discipline today; but is it effective? Today I’d like to explore how to discipline without threats and punishments, by providing discipline strategies for children with autism. This video is just as applicable to children without autism too though. Let’s be clear that disciplining kids with special needs is always a tricky situation, because there’s a chance that the child may or may not even understand what you as a parent is trying to teach. This is one of the main reasons why autism and bad behavior tend to be among the most asked questions I get as a behavior analyst. This is why I always suggest a positive parenting approach, and most of the time this does not include the overused time out threats.
