15 Tips for First Time Parents to Help with Discipline

6. Keep promises, whether it is good or bad. This enables your child to learn to respect and trust you.

7. The environment surrounding children can potentially influence their behavior, thus create one to help develop their good behavior.

8. As your kid gets older, give him more responsibility for his own behavior. Give him also the chance to experience the consequences of his behavior.

9. Help your younger one learn how to convey how she feels. Say, “How are you feeling?” “You seem upset.”

10. Always be firm on whining – no means no. Don’t say a word unless you really mean it.

  1. 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! πŸ™‚

  2. 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.
