I am not saying this as a joke but being serious. Have you ever seen the show Super Nanny? If so, then you need to call the show or go online and see if she can come and help you out. God Bless:) From my experience working with families and problem children, I have learned that good parenting leading to "good" children needs to start at a very early age. It is difficult and time consuming in the begining, but if you put in the time and effort from the start, the following years will be much easier, less stressful on you and the child(ren) and more enjoyable for all involved. I have found that the MOST important things are STUCTURE, CONSISTENCY, SELF-CONTROL and DISCIPLINE. MOST important is to understand that discipline DOES NOT include yelling, threatening OR hitting. You must clearly establish that you are the adult and in contol and they are the child and not the boss. The shortest and easiest way to explain this is actually quite simple. Good behavior gets verbal praise and "rewards", and "bad" (inappropriate) behavior does NOT get rewarded. People reading this may say "SURE", but suprisingly enough MANY parents DO NOT follow these simple guidelines. Use "spontaneous" positive verbal praise and rewards; don't ignore good behavior and only react to bad behavior. Act swiftly and firmly to bad behavior. One BIG asset is to use a calm, controlled voice; very matter of factly.(This can be VERY difficult, but it's very important.) Children learn very quickly and are very perceptive and smart. When a child misbehaves, it is very important not to give warning after warning after warning; or threat after threat: this makes it nothing but a joke. If, after a calm warning, a child does not comply, use what I call "spontaneous goodies". Simply, those who are acting appropriately (mom, dad, other kids,etc...) get a special treat. An ice cream cone, a trip to the Dollar Store, or any desireable. The innapropriate child does not get the "goodie". (SORRY!) Many people reading this will say "SURE!" The kid will have a meltdown and cry and scream. Deal with it once or twice or even three times and I guarantee the kid will learn very quickly and you will gain control (if done following the above guidelines) If not, eveyone will be miserable and you can look forward to crying, screaming, tantruming and more for the next 15 years. Do it right in the begining, bite the bullet and stay calm and in control and you will have many years of SMOOTH SAILING! (REALLY) I really hope someone out there actually tries this, finds how simple it really is, and has a happy, disciplined child and family!

Explain discipline as way of thinking?

Well yesterday there was a whole segment on this on HLN. According to studies they did discipline is ok for children up to 6 years old. Studies show that they focus more in school, which means getting better grades. They are also more respectful. 7 years and up is bad because they show more aggression and suffer from depression. In my opinion, good parenting is the answer. There is no real need for discipline unless you paid no attention to your children [child]. The only ones who need discipline are the ones who act out, and that's the parents fault

WHAT Is one roadblock to good discipline?

confusing discipline with punishment. Discipline helps children develop self-control and self-esteem. It teaches right from wrong. Punishment might restrain a child temporarily, but it does not teach alternative behavior. Punishment can even damage the parent-child relationship by reducing a child's trust in the parent.believing that what works at one time will work all the time. You need to change the way you discipline your children to keep pace with their natural growth. Different ages and stages, as well as different children, require different techniques.thinking that when you have difficulty disciplining a child, you are a "bad" parent. Don't put yourself down if you don't get the results you want. Think it through and try again.believing your children "should" behave a certain way at a certain time. Children are unique and special. They develop at their own speed, in their own way.believing you must "win" every battle. It is important to "pick your battles." Don't fight over unimportant issues.parents disagreeing in front of a child about discipline. Solve serious disagreements in private.
