If you don’t like using time out to discipline your toddler or young child, there are other forms of discipline that may work better for you and your family or you can use a combination of discipline methods. Remember that each child responds differently to discipline methods. One child may respond to a variety of discipline methods, while another child in your…Continue

There is nothing more heartbreaking than witnessing a small child being humiliated, mistreated and hit in public by his mother. No child, no matter what he has done, deserves to be disrespected and hurt, both physically and emotionally by someone who is supposed to protect him. This is not the first time I have witnessed something like this and it saddens me to think children everywhere are being raised in a family environment where such behavior is considered okay and normal. You may…Continue

Up until 6 months ago, I would have never wrote that title. I had a false outlook on "strong willed" children. I mean, after all, when anybody sees a child acting stubbornly it is always frowned upon. They always say with a snarling expression, "Oh that child is stubborn!", or "she is as stubborn as a mule!". But, I am so thankful, God allowed me to hear the testimony of a godly, stubborn woman; who mothered a stubborned child. She opened my eyes in a new way towards "The Strong Willed…Continue

My name is Amanda and I am a yeller. I can say this with a little less shame because I come by this trait honestly. My dad is yeller, his dad before him; in fact, I would venture to say I come from a long line of yellers. Does this make the yelling OK? No, but I am not nearly as terrifying as my dad was when he would get all fired up and start cursing in Croatian. Watch out! That big man always looked like he was two minutes away from bursting an artery in his neck when he got going. Fast…Continue

My husband and I were struggling with two problems. Our five year old wanting to play video games all the time and his misbehavior in general.
Tristian has some heavily autistic symptoms and behavior- but without an easy diagnosis because one, we don't know what's related to the medical problems or treatments; and two, I didn't realize he was…Continue
After reading articles over the last few weeks about how parents have abandoned traditional ways of discipline and opting to not discipline at all, it has caused me to look at the direct correlation and obvious impact this departure has had on our society. Our jails are busting at the seams and kids are more selfish, disrespectful, materialistic, and bratty. Hopefully I didn't describe any of your kids in the last sentence, but we have to do some serious re-evaluating if we believe that our…Continue

Are you constantly frustrated because it seems like your child doesn't listen to your instructions at all?
Well, you're not alone! One of our biggest problems as parents is how to get our children to follow. And sadly, the easiest way to do that is by showing we're upset.
But it doesn't always have to be that way. Let me show you with this simple, easy technique.…Continue

One of my earliest memories is of me as a very small child. I don't know if my sister was even born yet but I'm guessing she either was brand new or about to arrive. The memory is of my mom walking into my play room, taking one look around the chaos that I'd created and telling me sternly to clean up. Upon hearing her words and surveying the mess, I looked up at the window, wishing I could fly out of it to escape the task before me. I've considered this memory many times, thinking about how…Continue

A woman from Minnesota was convicted of domestic assault, among other things, because of how she chose to discipline her boyfriend’s 13 year-old daughter.
To make things worse, the unfortunate teen’s father was also charged since he allowed the punishment to take place.

Ever heard of the phrase "this is going to hurt me a lot more than it's going to hurt you"? Well, today I understood that phrase.
I was that phrase.
When it comes to discipline we prefer to talk it out and explain why the action is wrong, then there is taking a toy away and/or time out. If all else fails, then we will consider spanking, as the last resort.
D has never been spanked. We have smacked his hand but never fully on spanked.

There are times when nothing I do seems to work with my toddler. It's as though as her confidence grows so does her willingness to talk back. I'll be the first to admit that I'm no expert at discipline. I just try my best to reinforce consequences for bad behavior. Izzy can throw a tantrum like the best of them with the tears, the screaming and even flailing legs for an added affect. That said I still think that generally Izzy is pretty well behaved. …Continue
