Discipline Is About Structure
Discipline Is About Structure
11/22/2019


This is just my personal opinion and philosophy, as a mom that raised two kids. I think when children live generally undisciplined lives, they think that the world owes them something. They don't empathize with others.

If a parent chooses to discipline, they should do so consistently, fairly, and with the intent of producing results or a change in behavior. Discipline hurts. We all experience it. Living a disciplined life produces a child that understands what it feels like to not to get their way.

Discipline isn't only about time out or nose in the corner. It's about structure! Bath time, bedtime at a consistent time, cleaning up after play, taking care of pets, even doing homework. It's a way of life.
