This case study on Positive Discipline in Armenia provides an understanding of child development and psychology in relation to the negative impact of physical and humiliating punishment of children. It highlights the story of 15-year old Marlena and shares the experiences and lessons learnt. Because it can be difficult for adults to see alternative ways of bringing up children and youth, especially in contexts where physical and humiliating punishment is a social norm, Save the Children promotes “positive discipline” by contributing to training sessions on how to support children and young people in their development using positive teaching methods.
