Randolph professor speaks on discipline in local news broadcast

A local television station recently turned to a Randolph College professor to explain good ways to discipline children.

WSET produced the story in reaction to a YouTube video that purports to show a parent beating a teenage child. A reporter asked Consuella Woods, who teaches teacher education at the College, to talk about the line between acceptable punishment and abuse.

Woods stressed the importance of avoiding violence and anger during punishment. You can watch the video here.
