Let’s talk discipline today .
This is a tough one for most parents and guardians as this beautiful bundles of joy can easily turn to little balls of mischief. So what’s the fairest way to discipline them .
1. Keep quite
Let them be for the first mistake as it might be a temporary act of rebellion. Keep your peace til it’s repeated.
2. Warn them
Make it clear you are upset for what they are doing and that this is a warning before you take action.
3. Naughty corner
This gives your child time to think and apologize. If this isn’t effective move to the next step.
4. Send them to bed early
No kid wants to go to bed early especially not when they can play til late with their toys or tablet. This will give them time like the time out to rethink their mistakes.
5.Take away their favorite toy
They will definitely get angry but stand your ground that if they don’t change they won’t ever get it back.
6. Take away all electronics
No form of entertainment means boredom. Give them books instead. This works for most teenagers though.
7. Ground them
Take away their freedom if all else fails. Tell them they can no longer go anyway other than home and school until they prove they can behave.
8. Run (kidding… But seriously 🏃 )
