WHAT IS DISCIPLINE

  • Giving your child the tools to succeed in life.
  • Doing whatever you have to do to "enjoy" living with your child(ren).
  • Discipline is based on building the right relationship with a child more than using the correct techniques.
  • Helping your child develop inner controls that last a lifetime.

 

 UNDERSTANDING THE WORD "DISCIPLINE"

Many parents equate discipline with reacting to bad behavior. They don't realize that discipline is mostly what you do to encourage good behavior. It's better to keep a child from falling down in the first place than to patch up bumps and scrapes after he has taken the tumble.

DISCIPLIE IS EVERYTHING YOU PUT INTO YOUR CHILD

Discipline is everything you put into children that influences how they turn out. But how do you want your child to turn out? What will your child need from you in order to become the person you want him or her to be? Whatever your ultimate objectives, they must be rooted in helping your child develop inner controls that last a lifetime. You want the guidance system that keeps the child in check at age four to keep his behavior on track at age forty, and you want this system to be integrated into the child's whole personality, a part of him or her. If your child's life were on videotape and you could fast-forward a few decades, what are the qualities you would like to see in the adult on the tape?

HERE IS OUR WISH LIST FOR OUR CHILDREN:

  • sensitivity
  • sense of humor
  • confidence and solid self-esteem
  • ability to focus on goals
  • wisdom to make right choices
  • honesty, integrity
  • ability to form intimate relationships
  • healthy sexuality
  • respect for authority
  • a sense of responsibility
  • skills to solve problems
  • desire to learn
