Punishment vs Discipline

Posted: August 14, 2017

Raising strong willed children are not for the faint of heart.  Today's strong willed child is tomorrows CEO. I appreciate you allowing me a moment to process what I want to say.  First, congratulations on being the parents of an opinionated child, your job will be challenging but rewarding.  To have a daughter that has no fear, the ability to openly express herself, well that is wonderful!!!!  To have her be disrespectful, or rude. Not acceptable. I agree. So I thought we would first start with a discussion about discipline -vs-punishment.  

See good behavior is a learning process for children, and we are their road map. Children usually behave per their own emotions and impulses. At the same time, being a parent is also a learning process and sometimes we rely on our own emotions and impulses to teach. Usually that means we divert directly to punishments when a child misbehaves, missing a crucial opportunity to teach them. With that said, I am going to break down how to teach good behavior through discipline vs. punishment.
