Top 10 Tips for Discipline/Child Guidance

  1. Be the leader in your home.
  2. Use guidance to teach.
  3. Remain calm; you can fake it.
  4. Establish clear rules.
  5. Set expectations based on child’s abilities.
  6. Follow through on consequences.
  7. Be flexible; but don’t “cave” because you fear a fight.
  8. Get on the same page with your co-parent.
  9. Brainstorm with your kids to solve problems.
  10. Build a loving relationship so your kids will follow your guidance.

When you discipline your child, you can think to yourself, “What does he need to learn in this situation to grow and mature?” For example, does he need to learn to use his words instead of acting out, to control his impulses, or how to calm himself down?

Children need their parents to provide love. They also need their parents to:

  • guide them,
  • hold them accountable,
  • help them gain the skills they will need to function in the world.

By providing structure, you are aiding your children in developing inner discipline to become responsible adults.

There is no one “right” way to set limits. There is a wide range of healthy discipline approaches. Parents need to avoid the extremes of being overly lax and neglectful (without providing sufficient guidance) or being overly rigid and strict (using harsh discipline that does not respect the child).
