    Common Mistakes Parents Make When Disciplining Their Kids?

    Hi Shil-

    Most common mistake - being angry.  Disciplining a child is actually a critical teaching opportunity.  One that is best handled with calm, reason and logic (and love).

    Not only is the behavior corrected (or at the very least addressed)  a positive probelm solving method is demonstrated.

    And, as you know from my other posts, I believe that any sort of violence is wrong for a myriad of reasons.

    Inconsistency. When you are consistent, there will be less discipline problems to correct. Children thrive in a consistent environment. They like to know if I do this, then this will happen. They don't feel secure when they never know what to expect.

    In my opinion, the most common mistake parents make when disciplining their kids is "do as I say, not as I do."  Children learn from what you model for them, not from lectures.  Also, most parents talk too much and don't listen enough.
