Discipline teaches your child how to behave and how not to behave in social and routine situations. It also lays the foundation for the kind of adult the child is going to be.
Discipline teaches your child how to behave and how not to behave in social and routine situations. It also lays the foundation for the kind of adult the child is going to be. Discipline can never be taught just by punishment. Instead, discipline should be taught by talking, listening and showcasing the behaviour you want your child to learn. Babies under the age of 3 do not really understand good or bad behaviour. Building a routine such as sleeping on time and waking up on time, eating home cooked meals, etc. can be done with toddlers.
You can inculcate disciplined behaviour among toddlers by:
Nail biting is common not only in children but also in adults. It is important to understand the underlying reasons behind this habit.
A child is bound to throw a tantrum because who else if not the child. This does not mean the tantrums can not be tamed.
Even your child is aware that hitting is not the right thing. You just need to pin point the problem and solve it.
When a toddler asks you a question, either it comes out of curiosity or it could be just attention seeking. Whatever is the case, it is always best to feed your child's curiosity and give them undivided attention.
Children do not understand the concept of "stealing" so instead of dealing with this situation using your anger, it is better to sit with your child and make him/her understand why they should not be doing this.
Sibling rivalry is an age-old problem and get can be addressed easily if done at the right time.
Knowing the interest of your child will help you guide your child better.
Children model their parents the most. Develop the listening skill yourself and then help the child to achieve the same.
A child will always stay true to his/her nature. Nonetheless, there is always room for changes and improvements.
Before assuming that your child is a disobedient child, assess what according to you is disobedience.
All humans are stubborn, more or less. That does not mean you cannot teach your child to put their foot down and patiently listen to what the other person has to say.
Back answering is not just a misbehaviour of your child. There might be underlying reasons for that.
It becomes a little awkward to explain such things to your child.
A regular habit or not, thumb sucking can cause problems in a child's speech.
