More About the Author
I enjoy writing about this issue and, in 2011, published This Hurts Me More Than It Hurts You; In Words and Pictures Children Share How Spanking Hurts and What To Do Instead. It is used in a variety of professional training programs and parenting programs to create awareness of the effects of corporal punishment. In 2013, I published Breaking the Paddle: Ending School Corporal Punishment which chronicles the legislative victory by a small group of average citizens in ending the practice in Ohio in 2009. It is a must-read book for parents and child advocates who seek to end its use. Both books have won national book awards. My commitment to ending all corporal punishment of children stems from a firm belief that children are entitled to the same freedom that all other citizens enjoy, to be free from physical assault. All proceeds from my writing go to non-profit organizations for educational programs on positive discipline.
I like finding creative ways of bringing attention to the subject of corporal punishment of children. I started the website www.stophitting.org. I have spoken at many professional conferences and have been interviewed by almost all major networks and news publications.
I live in Columbus, Ohio. I am married, the mother of three grown sons and grandmother to l0 children. My blog is www.nadineblock.com.

Dr Gomez writes beautifully and simply. An amazing book of insights from the child's point of view. Something we seem to loose sight of as we get older. This book should be mandatory for all parents. Start in Prek!! A must read for prospective parents, parents, grandparent or those who dont have kids and have no idea.
In my research I have found Zero psychological and philosophical justification for punishing children in any way, much less in hitting them. So 45 years ago my wife and children and I together found ways to eliminate all forms of punishment in our home. In my book "Parenting Without Punishing" I show how, with our Democratic Discipline family meetings, we all shared responsibility for treating each other with civility. Instead of lectures and shaming, the children learned by parents' modeling the desired behavior. Hence, the kids were, say, never taught manners; instead they were treated with courtesy. They matured considerably sooner than their peers. They are now in their forties, with college degrees and successful in their careers & happy families. This 18-year "research" is my argument that no extra patience is necessary, only understanding the basic goodness of a child, and respecting that. - Norm Lee
Thank you, Dr. Gomez, for your award-winning dedication promoting nonviolence is very inspiring. As I once read in your previous publication, you truly live "To the hope that tomorrow will be a new day filled with peace for all today" (The Power of Peace by Madeleine Y. Gomez, Ph.D. and Mitch Hall).
As a former elementary teacher and mother, I pray that your book empowers many of us to really listen to their words and make a difference.
