 Immediately leave the room Physically restrain the child Ask another adult to step in and assist with the situation

 If you have the parent’s permission Only for serious misbehavior You cannot use corporal punishment at any time

 Hugs are okay if the child is age 6 or younger. Let the child initiate the affection. Follow your heart. Use a pat on the back or a ‘side hug.’

 To protect the child, youth or vulnerable adult To get help for the family Both of the above.
