Discipline is one of the defining elements of parenting; whether used sparingly or liberally, it’s fundamental to the parent-child dynamic. In its most basic form, discipline is a matter of choices and consequences. The parents explain their expectations for the child. If the child ignores these rules or expectations, there are consequences. The aim of these consequences is to encourage the child to stop negative behaviors, make positive choices, and ultimately become a better person.
Through discipline, children are taught to become responsible, honest, kind, sharing people. By following their parent’s guidance, teachings, and rules, they have the chance to grow up to be well-behaved and respectful individuals.
However, if you punish your child instead of disciplining them, the end result will not be the same. Did you think that punishment and discipline were the same thing? Think again!
