6 Positive Discipline Techniques


The ultimate goal of effective discipline is SELF-DISCIPLINE! Children need to learn to control their own behavior!


1. BE CONSISTENT! The #1 key to effective discipline is to ALWAYS be consistent! Children need limits to feel safe! To feel that their world is stable! By being consistent with structure & discipline you are communicating to your child that they are safe & secure! If a rule is worth making, then it’s worth sticking to it!


2. STRUCTURE! Again, children aren’t ready to navigate the world on their own yet! That’s why they need YOU! By setting structure to their days you are teaching them to navigate their own little worlds & as they grow and mature they are able to experience & handle more of the big world out there!


3. REWARD! Notice positive behavior! Catch your child being good! If your child is trying to get attention – give them MORE attention for being good, NOT for misbehavior! If you spend more time talking to your child when they misbehave then you are reinforcing their misbehavior!


4. LET GO! Sometimes a big mistake offers a GREAT learning experience. Don’t try to solve all of your child’s problems for them. It’s better for your child to learn life lessons little by little while they are under your roof than all at once when they move off to college!


5. TAKE TIME!! Spend at least 15 minutes a day loving on your child J Before bed is a GREAT time to do this! Children DO want to talk to u!!! Kids tend to open up more as they are resting in bed before going to sleep!


6. CONNECT! Connect the cause & effect of choices. Each decision we make has a consequence, whether it is a positive or negative one. Involve your child in decision making & teach them to see the effect of their decisions.
