Discipline can be a very difficult area of parenting. We love our kids and we never want to see them upset, but the reality is that kids need rules, structure, and even discipline. The good thing is that discipline doesn't have to include yelling. When disciplining a child, we never want to yell, be mean or hurtful, or attack his character. We may have the urge to do some of these things, but it is important that we never show it as kids absorb everything we do and say. It is crucial that our kids know how much we love them regardless of their behavior. So, if we need to discipline our kids, but are not going to yell, what do we do? Read on to learn how to tackle discipline in a loving and respectful manner.
Hopefully these tips will help you to discipline with kindness and respect. The key points to remember are to remain calm and kind, discuss what happened, and provide a logical consequence. We need our kids to learn important life lessons, but we also want them to know how much we care for them and that we understand that poor choices sometimes happen.
