Join the Conversation Online!

Aug 4, 2016

You can help ZERO TO THREE elevate parents’ voices in the national conversation about parenting young children.

It is our pleasure to share with you a deep dive into “The Discipline Dilemma” that was revealed in ZERO TO THREE’s national Parent Survey, Tuning In, conducted in collaboration with the Bezos Family Foundation. This set of findings shows that parents fully appreciate the critical importance of discipline for a child’s overall development, yet struggle to find positive and effective approaches. In fact, our research shows they use harsh discipline more than they would like.

Please join us for a Twitterchat on Thursday, December 15, at 2 p.m. ET, in collaboration with MomsRising. We will answer questions and share a range of resources, including infographics and parent takeaways to help guide the discussion around developing approaches to discipline that teach and guide versus punish. To join in the conversation, use #EarlyEdChat and #ParentForward. We have developed this social media toolkit to support your participation in the online discussion.

I hope you can join the Twitterchat on December 15 and keep the conversation going through your own social media efforts.

Like us on and follow @ZEROTOTHREE on Twitter. Use #ParentForward to contribute to the dialogue.
