Parental discipline is defined as parental educational method of learning acceptable and modifying unacceptable child behavior. Punishment, as a part of corrective discipline, is focused on inappropriate behavior with an intention to correct it. Basic characteristics of punishment, such as intention and unpleasantness, drew attention of scientists and experts and led to a discussion regarding their justification and effectiveness. The aim of the paper is to present the basic characteristics and types of punishment, effects and factors of its successful use, and current efforts of experts who are trying to shift parents' actions from punishment to positive discipline, which means encouraging and stimulating desirable behavior and developing self-discipline
