“Discipline and teaching children tolerable ways to conduct themselves is, undeniably, one of the trickiest parts of parenting.”
Welcome to the parenting world! Pretty sure, the happiness that you are feeling as parents of a beautiful angel is priceless. Being a parent is a valuable gift, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibilities.
Discipline and teaching children tolerable ways to conduct themselves is, undeniably, one of the trickiest parts of parenting. These days, you’ll find various ideas on how to appropriately discipline children. However, bear in mind that the goal of discipline is to guide your little one through their developmental periods while educating them important behaviors and lessons that will help them grow up into successful adults.
How do you keep your child from heading to the DVD player? How can you get him or her to value your authority?
Here are 15 tips to help you with discipline:
1. Tell or show your child how his behavior affects you. This will help him see his feelings in yours.
2. Listen courteously. You can nod as your little one talks, and imitate what you think he is feeling. Doing this will mean a lot, such as helping them cope up with big emotions and tension.
3. Show and teach your kid what she needs to do, instead of telling her what not to do.
4. Positive feedback is crucial. Always give your child a positive feedback when he’s behaving in a manner you like.
5. Keep things positive and simple so he will know what is expected of him. It is advised to implement positive rules as it guides the behavior of a child in a positive manner.

Wow. Im not yet a parent, but I connect with all you said. I think parenting is very important at the early stage. I see its usefulness being a teacher.

Thank you so much, Warda!
While all the points you have mentioned are very important and relevant, the most important, according to me, is being a good role model. I have noticed this first hand with my daughter. If I tell her to behave a certain way, it only gets reinforced once she sees me behave the same way!
Great post! 🙂
Great advice! I wish I saw this when my two were younger!
Excellent advice that any parent can apply to their bag of tricks 😊
Beautiful post! I don’t have kids but I look after my nephew 3 days a week and a lot of this resonates with me.
Kids are the sweetest of humans and I LOVE their brutal honesty. Such a beautiful part of life.
