Suggestions For Disciplining Your Child

Disciplining your child is one of the hardest parts of being a parent. Sometimes it can be hard to decide what’s right and wrong with your child and that makes discipline even more difficult.

Most times you know when they’ve made the wrong decision, but you may not know what is right when it comes to disciplining your child. There are several things you can do, but how do you know if the discipline is enough for them to remember it if they decide to do that again? That question is one that doesn’t have a right or wrong answer to so the best thing you can do is decide for yourself.

Of course, you can ground your child from the TV, the X-box, or from having a friend stay the night, but is that enough? Then you have to decide how long the grounding will last. Should it be two weeks, a month, or more? That’s also a hard decision to make.

One way to decide is to try something and increase or change it if they decide to do it again. While that can be frustrating it may be the way to go. You’ll need to remember what the discipline is for that action so you know what’s next if it’s not enough. Writing it down in a notebook may be a good idea.

Another option is to talk to a friend or family member you can trust and run things by one another. This person may have been in your situation and may know what worked for them and you could give it a try. Now this won’t work if you have to make a quick decision or if your friend or family member is not available, but it may work if you have time to make a decision. You also need to communicate with your spouse when it comes to disciplining your child.

Disciplining your child can be difficult whether you do this on a regular basis or if it happens on a rare occasion. It’s still something you need to be prepared to do and you need to know what your decision will be each time.
