GladChild: Discipline should start from an early age, discipline for children is very important in this life, so they grow into successful people. But parents do not realize how they are in disciplining children was not right.

In making regulations often parents applying punishment is too harsh or even any regulations made with the aim of disciplining, but not serious in its implementation. One thing you have to remember, the purpose of discipline is not punishment, but it offers lessons to children to be responsible for what it does and how it's caused by their treatment of others.

You may never yell or raise the volume when the little rules he created. A research sociologist at the University of New Hampshire, Murray Straus, revealing yelling and threats can affect children's mental to trigger aggressive behavior in children. Thunder and threatening actions that would bring long-term psychological effects of the child, and usually only seen after they grow up.

Straus says children who grow up with disciplinary upbringing full of screaming, threats and severe penalties can result in lack of confidence or be a rebel. It is feared, namely, the child will do the same to their children someday. In applying discipline your child should not begin with violence, screaming or anger, and following some input to discipline your child:
  • Write down your rules along with consequences on a sheet of paper and stick it in the refrigerator or any place that allows for strategic and your child see it.
  • Make sure that your child understands the rules and consequences that you create. Explaining it with specific regulations, for example by saying "Hold your mama's hand when crossing the street." Or "If its 8 pm to sleep yes, will not sleep, woke up late tomorrow, loh."
  • Encourage your child to reread the rules when she broke the rules you have created. Do not forget to remind the consequences that he has received if it violates these rules.
  • Offer choices to your child, because after your entire child needs the independence and do not like things to curb it. This will grow the strength and control of the child and prevent a child from the rebels.
  • Do not let your child think he had broken the rules and must accept the consequences because you, or the volume you are not aware of rising, when seen against the rules. Make your child realize he deserves the consequences because he has violated the rules.
  • Remember to hold your emotions when the child committed an offense. Do not you shout, pull, yell or threaten. Children are more receptive to the commands "do" or "do" than "Do not do or do not do". Better to say what should be done of the child, such as "Speak slowly," rather than forbidden to speak.
  • You must be really consistent with the rules you create. If your baby should sleep eight hours a night, every night he must sleep at 8 pm.
