Raising kids is never an easy task. No set guidelines or handbook can tell how to raise kids in a better way. Every child is different and they need to be dealt with differently. Along with love, care and protection they also need to be disciplined when required. Not every child has the same thought process and nature; similarly, not every child can be disciplined in the same way. Here are common types of discipline that parents mostly try with:
This type of discipline is based on the praise and encouragement method. Positive discipline is based on the concept of mutual respect where parents sit and talk to their little ones whenever they make any mistakes.
Gentle discipline is more about redirecting the problem for the time being to prevent kids from behaving badly. In this, parents, rather than yelling or punishing, use humor and distraction to deal with the situation when their kids demand something they do not like.
The boundary-based discipline is all about setting limits and clear rules. In this way of discipline, kids are apprised about the consequences of flouting the rule or misbehaving. Kids must know that they need to respect the boundaries of others.
Behavior modification discipline is a combination of both positive and negative consequences. Parents praise and reward the good behavior of kids and misbehavior is discouraged or ignored.
Emotion coaching is showing empathy and being supportive to kids of their needs and feelings. Along with this, parents also set clear limits in this type of disciplinary method.
