How do you manage discipline?

The 'D' word. I have discovered you are either great with discipline or you are really bad at it, and for those in the middle I applaud you and want to know your secrets.

Some of us become our parents and hit on just the right amount, whilst others, who have possibly had a very strict upbringing become incredibly laid back to avoid becoming our parents. Which is possibly the worse thing we can do for our children as it doesn't teach them boundaries and a child without boundaries is very difficult to control.

So we want to know how you manage discipline at home. Are you good at disciplining your children or do they get away with murder?


children parents discipline home

I am struggling. Consistency is my biggest problem. Although I have found that the removal of a phone can really help!

My children especially my 10 year old and 4 year old are trying very hard to push the boundaries of discipline. Starting with my eldest he has the biggest attitude problem of them all, with this i remove his consoles away but with that he tells me that he hates me and that i am horrible and the worst mother in the world with this i stick him in a naughty corner much to his disgust but seems to get the results that i am requiring. With my 4 year old when he tries to push it he clenches his fists and growls at me, but with this its when the naughty corner is an element that my ears prefer, also with the threat of if he doesn't stop it then his toys will be removed from his room. It's hard trying to be a parent and knowing what to do best, but if you try many things you will find something that works for you, it's a life of trial and error but if you stick with it you will get there in the end.

When we first adopted our son, I am afraid to admit that we both were the "grand enablers". We started using a program called Love and Logic

It really helped us as parents and our son.

For us, we sought help, although we did do a pretty good job until the "tweens". On program WE liked  a lot is



Then, the other thing we did is start meditating.
