Disciplining Kids: My Top 3 Tips for Effective Discipline With Children

I get asked by parents all the time if I have tips for disciplining kids. These are definitely at the top of my list:

  • Know that you are in charge: How? Make it very clear that you will decide the consequences. Be aware that after a certain age, children know their parents’ weaknesses and start to bargain. Put all else aside and honor your position!
  • When you’re right, be kind: How? Pay attention to your tone of voice. When we are right, we tend to be far from kind; our tone of voice changes. When we are angry, we tend to be loud. When we are right we tend to be condescending. When a mistake is repeated, we tend to get sarcastic. And absolutely no foul words … ever!!
  • Always give your child the benefit of the doubt: How? Allow them to explain their side of the story especially if you know that they were wrong. Breathe and just listen.
