Summary When considering the typical methods of disciplining children of elementary age, parents tend to experience emotional struggles such as frustration, anger, and difficulties with appropriately punishing their children. In analyzing typical Latino parenting, studies have demonstrated that Latinos may respond harshly, resorting to corporal punishment, when disciplining their children. Research has found that such forms of discipline negatively affect children. Currently, the growing number of Latinos in Southern California has also been noted in the local schools, where an increase of Latino student enrollment has occurred. In turn, schools and Latino parents' typical student discipline such as punitive, harsh discipline, as well as corporal punishment has negatively impacted the Latino youth. The Latino community is in need of more suitable methods of discipline which will not negatively impact children. The purpose of this project is to create Applied Behavior Analysis based parent behavioral workshops both in English and Spanish to address this need for more suitable methods of discipline.
