Keep your voice low : Shouting is a negative approach to child discipline
If you react very loudly on even minor faults of your child then it might work only for a few times. After that your child will become immune to your loud reaction and wouldn’t take you seriously. This will make you crazier and will loose your bonding with your child. On the contrary, your child would understand you better if you keep your volume down.
So before reacting, take a deep breath and get away from there. When you find your anger go away and feel calm, its time to talk with your child. Remember, you don’t want to place yourself in the bitter corner of your child’s heart.
Do not insist on admitting : Focus should be on not repeating the mistakes instead of admittance of fault
Calmly discuss the event and the undisciplined behavior with your child. But do not insist on admitting the fault. If you do, then it will create a negative feeling about you in your child’s mind.
Punishing is not the solution : Punishment is only ONE of the methods of child discipline !
If you want to make your child disciplined, your goal should not be to punish your child, feel ashamed or apologize. If you do, then your child would not listen to you the next time. Punishing is not the solution. You don’t have to be tough while teaching your child good discipline.
Have patience : Only a disciplined approach by you will discipline the child
If you will behave well with your child it will definitely show you the positive results. But please don’t be eager to see positive changes in your child’s behavior. Have patience. You don’t have to give your child any capsule or injection of discipline. It will take some time but it will be fruitful and your child will definitely listen to you and behave in a disciplined manner. If you loose your patience, your child will loose his/her discipline.
Praise your child
