Child Discipline: How Child Discipline Teaches the Power of Choice
Child discipline ...
... can be a confusing subject. While few experts advocate spanking, many parents have found that time-outs don't really work. And what if standard techniques backfire on your child? For instance, what if taking away your child's privileges causes him to act like he doesn't care ... as though your consequences have no power to change him?
How do you teach children to interact in positive ways, without resorting to tactics like blame, shame or punishment?
(And what if you have a child who is defiant no matter what you do? If this describes your child, take a look at this behavioral program that shows you how to teach your child to stop impulsive, defiant, abusive or out-of-control behaviors.) If you're unfamiliar with this program, you might want to read my review of the Total Transformation Program first.
For kids who just need some help making better choices, understand that ...
The goal of discipline is to teach your child to make increasingly better choices.
If these are some of the issues that you are struggling with, you'll find them answered in my book Keepers of the Children: Native American Wisdom and Parenting which teaches parents what discipline really means. To raise your child to be a caring, conscientious human being, you do not need to resort to the tactics your parents used. Shame and blame do not help a child grow up to be a good person.
