Responding to the needs of parents and child care workers for reliable guidelines, social learning theorists have offered a new perspective on the effectiveness of various disciplinary techniques in encouraging rule-following in young children. While punishment may be of limited value in consistently influencing rule-related behavior, non-punitive techniques have been found to have greater impact on children who have begun to master their native language.
