Save the Children Fiji’s Chief Executive Officer Shairana Ali.

Parents, guardians and community leaders in 10 communities in the Central Division have been trained on using positive forms of discipline such as cutting down the time on some of their child’s privileges like watching TV.

Save the Children Fiji’s Parenting Without Resorting to Violence Program is funded by the Canada Fund.

Save the Children CEO Shairana Ali says it is common in our communities for parents to beat children to discipline them, but they will now use these alternative forms of discipline.

She adds their surveys have proven that this positive form of discipline has helped to maintain the parent-child relationship and parents are able to provide better support for their children.

Save the Children Fiji teams are also in Bua, parts of Macuata and Koro Island conducting this training.

They also plan to cover communities that have requested for this training after hearing and witnessing the positive impact of this training.
