in my "opinion", parents should limit responding to childrens needs or wants, (except love ofcourse) because they tend to get spoiled.

I agree with your comment dragonite. Parents should limit the way of responding the needs of their children and do not give the things which is not necessary.

I always go with soft words to correct him. I dont believe harsh or strictness will not able to realise his mistakes rather he would hate me. I will go with soft words f understanding the bad of his behaviour.

congratulations, you are belong to the greatest parent in the world because not all parent like yours. Some of parents teach their children how to live in violence because of their manner of correction. I am proud to the parent who never hurt their children by correcting their children.

Hello takeshiboy, i will tell him what the mistake is, the disadvantage of it, and the advantage if we avoid it. That will make him understand that mistake should not do it because it can bother other. I will give him some punishment if he repeat it for three or four for the same mistake.

I agree with your comment to explain the consequences of bad action but i am disagree with the physical punishment. If we can discipline our child by explaining much better and do not attempt to hurt them to prevent rebellion.

I am not yet a parent myself but I have a cousin who is a lot younger than me. I tell her that what she is doing was not all right and I'd tell her the consequence. I do this in a calm manner and as cloud31 mentioned, speak in a modulated tone. Instead of punishment, I think it's best to let kids know what they are doing wrong. Children learn a lot during the early years, usually when they are 1 to 5 years old. I believe children are more intelligent than what we give them credit for. Let's make them understand when they do something wrong in a nice manner. Also, I am a nurse. As I've learned in our child development classes, it is okay to put the child on Time Out especially if the child is becoming unruly. Just make the child sit and stay in place for some minutes, around five. Never let him leave his place until time out is over. It lets the child calm down and gives him time to think about what he did and why he is on time out. If a child goes to tantrums, it's best to ignore the tantrums...never give in. If the parents always give in to the child's tantrums, the child will think that it's okay to use the tantrums as tactics to manipulate the parents to do or give what he wants. I hope these help.

I am impressed in your comments. You are correct giving punishment to a children are not advisable because it can affect psychological to the children. One of the result is for being violent, bully,and misbehavior which causes conflicts. I am not agree to the reasoning of some parents that children must experience punishment as part of disciplinary to them. To talk and explain to the children in modulated the consequences of their mistakes are enough to understand. To the parents, please do not let your children grow in punishment and violent because in time they will suffer psychological problem.

You can discipline your children without any threat or physical discipline by explaining the consequences of their bad actions. Sometimes when children suffers too much physical it may causes rebellion.

I am not yet a mom but i think i can share my views regarding this topic,Just simply show and explained to them what mistakes they did that a child like him/her should not be act,and what he did is not acceptable to you,..but you have to talk to them in modulated tune..I am thinking bringing him/her in a corner let him accept his mistakes and not to released him unless he can fully understand what is not acceptable for you and he after he accepted his mistakes he will not have any concept of doing it again because it will bear punishment. Happy Lotting!
