How do you handle indiscipline

July 12, 2008 12:44am CST
on the part of your children? And when your subordinates at work place show indiscipline? Any way out there without hurting but making the point known?

Oh my, in my past workplaces are thriving with unruliness but I have learned to not get involved in it as there tends to be alot of neck and ankle biting and you better off if you dont because the rivalries can come back to get you later on, so just do not take side and do YOU JOB is all I can say. My children I love to show them I love them throughout the day because the only give me limitless love but when they step out of line I make sure they know mamma (or "Anne") will not tolerate it from them and I usually take priveledges away or send them to their room for a few minutes, this works since there only 2 and 3 1/2. I do not dare want to be easy with them now and have to deal with unruliness much later on, OMG. My kids know I love them so much and the greatest reminder that Im doing things right is them telling me "I love you Anne", its precious.

beating children is thought by all to be the best remedy. but no,,,. it makes the children all the more unruly and rude. and when they are saturated they won't obey you any more..the only way out is by being firm. sticking to the point and not allowing liberties can solve the problem..

hi dear there are no sweet ways of doing it. either you be sweet with the or a disciplinarian. you can not have the cake and eat it too. no doubt you have to get the work done but not at the cost of indiscipline. the two things are poles apart. you cannot be a successful boss without proper output and that can not come with sweet nothings and pleasing attitude towards workmen . you have to have the strict but of course the polite attitude with an eye on output and performance.
