Discipline is not something parents do to a child but rather, it’s something that’s done for him because kids need to know where the boundaries are. There are lot of misinterpretations being spread about parent’s confusion on how to manage their children properly. There has to be a secret formula on how to deal with loud, aggressive and disrespectful kids by having a system of controlling them.
Parenting is definitely a learned skill. As, parents, we need to set boundaries and parameters if we want our children to fall in line. If we constantly argue and fight with our kids, there’s a tendency that they will disrespect and disobey us. Have you noticed that if you’re out of control, your child is also out of control? A child learns by modeling. They watch you, all ears, all eyes, and there’s nothing they’ve missed. They see everything. If you don’t have boundaries or limitations, or if you don’t have discipline, you can’t expect your child to have that also.
Boundaries are reminders to the child that they are loved, cared for, and being watched which gives them the assurance that they’re in good hands. Kids want to know what the rules are and how to follow them. Be consistent with the boundaries you set in teaching your toddler how to behave properly. Children are just waiting for someone to step up and stop them.
Maybe it’s difficult for us to confront our child who’s misbehaving because we love our kids so much and it makes us uncomfortable to feel like we’re the bad guys at home, right? But as parents, we have to do these because we love them. We want them to feel safe by providing them security and defined limits.
