    What is a good balance between love & discipline in parenting?

    What do you think is  a healthy balance between offering love, security and gentleness to your child but also disciplining well and setting firm boundaries and how does this change according to age?

    That's a tough balance to strike but I think if discipline is seen as a form of love, that's a start. Young children have underdeveloped impulse control so they are looking for parents to help them control their behavior by setting limits. It shows that you love them and care what happens to them.  It doesn't have to be harsh, just consistent.

      I never thought about it as helping them with impulse control but I like that, it is more working for them than against them.
