Discipline Is Not About “Controlling” Your Kids!
Do you often find yourself having to “step in” to control your child’s behavior? In today’s episode, I’m going to try to change your thinking about discipline. The goal of discipline is “self-regulation” on the part of the child. Otherwise, some children “keep pushing” until someone regulates for them. Wouldn’t it be better if your child learned to self-regulate, instead of you having to regulate for them? This has dramatic implications into adulthood also. Finally, I talk about patience in parenting. We have to give time for the child to self-control, but we often don’t give the child enough time. So I give you some advice on that as well.
