|From infancy on, children need loving guidance which reflects acceptance of their capabilities and sensitivity to their feelings.
...Loving guidance, ie: helping a child grow to be a loving, caring, self-disciplined adult is ideally reached by an emphasis on discipline/teaching methods and attitudes that foster learning while maintaining self-esteem. This process reflects awareness of, sensitivity to, and respect for developmental needs, capabilities, and individuality. ...Harsh or restrictive physical or verbal methods, or lack of parental attention, concern or intervention are inconsistent with the philosophy and goals of the loving guidance policy.
