Show your love by setting boundaries so your kids can explore and discover their passions safely.
discipline is not punishment
Enforcing limits is really about teaching kids how to behave in the world and helping them to become competent, caring, and in control.
Pick your battles
Focus on the things that really matter that means no hitting, rude talk, or lying.
Have with them
Let them choose the activity, and don’t worry about rules. Just go with the flow and have fun.
Schedule daily special time
Let your child choose an activity where you hang out together for 10 or 15 minutes with no interruptions.
Make warm memories
Your children will probably not remember anything that you say to them, but they will recall the family rituals like bedtimes and game night that you do together.
Be the role model
Modeling appropriate, respectful, good behavior works much better than telling them what to do.
Give appropriate praise
Try to be specific about what your child did to deserve the positive feedback.
Always tell the truth
Try to teach your child to understand the situation
Don’t accept disrespect from your child.
Never allow her to be rude or say hurtful things to you or anyone else. If she does, tell her firmly that you will not tolerate any form of disrespect.
