Author Phyllis Williams offers parenting guide on teaching behavior from the inside out, in new book

Teaching replacement behavior makes punishment unnecessary.

What would it look like if punishment could be eliminated from parenting? For some, this is a crazy thought as they can only imagine how uncontrollable their child would be. In her new book, “Principle-Centered Parenting,” author Phyllis Williams guides parents on teaching healthy, spiritually based thinking to their kids in order to change behavior from the inside out.

“Principle-Centered Parenting” explains how teaching children to learn to love good will reflect in their behavior and begin to dissolve bad behavior. Throughout the book, parents are encouraged to observe and listen to their children in order to gain understanding on how they can teach behavior principles that guide and motivate healthy behaviors.

“Punishment stops bad behavior temporarily, but does not teach replacement behaviors,” said Williams. “Teaching replacement behavior makes punishment unnecessary.”

Phyllis Williams spent 15 years working as a preschool owner, director and teacher where she learned there are more effective ways to teaching children behavioral habits than the traditional methods of controlling external behaviors. Williams has also raised a family of three, enabling her to put these learned principles into practice.

“Principle-Centered Parenting is ultimately a guide for parents to tap into their own spiritual resources along with their children’s infinite spiritual resources,” said Williams. “Bringing out the infinite spiritual potential of children will benefit all of society.”
