BOYS' DEVELOPMENT PROJECT - INFORMATION
The Boys' Development Project, which was developed to research how best to support boys as they grow up, has produced a very useful booklet for parents and carers of boys up to 5 years old called "Discipline and boys who are under five". This booklet offers guidance about the effective use of discipline and boundaries for young boys. I have put a copy of this document for you to download at the bottom of this page. There is also a link to the Boys' Development Project website. I hope you find this useful.
