Positive Discipline for your Preschooler
Ages 3 to 5 are wonderful years in your child's life. However, as your child's need for independence grows, you may experience more battles at home. Did you know that punishing, shouting and lecturing are ineffective ways to guide your child? Try a new approach called Positive Discipline. Not only will it result in your child being motivated to behave well, you as a parent will gain peace of mind too.
When Your Child is Getting Jealous of Others
Just like adults, children experience jealousy too. Most parents either give in to their children and some even end up shaming their children when they feel jealous. At the end of the day, as a parent, you might be either conveying to your child that it is either okay to get jealous while you are comforting them and giving in to their demands. Or you are not allowing your child to feel an emotion that is only natural.
So what does one do then?
Disciplining Children in Public
A child misbehaving in public may lead parents to overreact and feel frustrated. After all, kids of good parents are supposed to behave themselves. A public incident is very embarrassing for parents as it attracts a lot of attention. A little planning can help parents deal with children misbehaving in public.
If you are the parent of a young child, particularly between the ages of 2 and 4, you don't need anyone to tell you what a temper tantrum is. You would most probably be familiar with scenes of crying, screaming, stamping, kicking, jumping up and down, hitting.
To Spank Or Not To Spank
Parenting is a very rewarding experience, but nobody ever said it was easy. One of the major challenges one might face is discipline. When your child's behavior pushes you to the edge, how do you handle it? Do you see spanking as a solution?
