If your child has a constant behavior problem then yes. If you do not work and follow it consistently then it will not work though. All to often behavior problems center around lack of consistency in the family dynamic. So perhaps just taking a more routine approach and setting up a constant dynamic at home would be better suited to ones needs.
Society has gotten away from the family dynamic in whole or in part in a lot of cases. People do not sit down to dinner every night. They do not talk about their days. Often they do not even express any interest in how their child's day went, or if they are having issues in school etc.
All to often parents have their noses in the laptop or in an iphone oblivious to what is happening in their own homes. Children are not monitored like they once were, they are for the most part given free reign to do as they please. That is until they do something the parent notices and deems unsatisfactory.
Many behavior issues can be avoided if you maintain constant goals and family rules. Starting at an early age, creating a "disciplined" mindset that the rules are the rules they remain the same and must be followed.
Simple things like "respect for others" would be well utilized as a rule from an early age well into the teen years. With age you can focus more in depth on what each rule means, yet they have remained the same throughout the child's life. Children need structure.
