Discipline Your Child: Setting Boundaries

Jay Stevens

Discipline is setting boundaries or limits for your child.

 

What is discipline?

It is setting boundaries or limits for your child.

In their book Boundaries with Kids: When to Say YES, When to Say NO, to Help Your Children Gain Control of Their Lives, Henry Cloud and John Townsend write about Ricky, a seven-year-old who had this to say about boundaries, "I like to say boundaries, but I don’t like to hear them."

Even though it’s much easier not to let that demanding, whining, and temper-tantrum-laden behavior start by setting limits from the beginning, mistakes will be made.

Fortunately, there are no bad parenting habits that can’t be "broken" when children are young. You can undo that demanding, whining, and temper-tantrum-laden behavior of the angel spoiled by parents with a lot of hard work at a later age.
