Proactive discipline plan for children

In particular, get rid of your mind that teaches discipline in children should involve the behavior of the hard, especially fierce. Discipline is to teach good manners and proper in children. Therefore, the correct technique of teaching is a proactive discipline plan. That is, parents encourage the formation of a sense of responsibility for children, building self-esteem and strengthening relationships with children.

Another thing to take, taught discipline techniques must be adapted to the age until the child understands the difference between appropriate and inappropriate behavior.

Moreover, there is no one of any techniques that can be used in all situations. So, parents need to anticipate situations and conditions such as what is going to be able to apply the proper way of teaching discipline. Some of them:

Ignore bad behavior (if possible). The behavior that will not harm your child, such as crying or tantrums, can be ignored. Ignoring means not giving your child the audience wants, that is, people who he wants to give attention to his actions. However, please note that the way this waiver will succeed if you do also the opposite, namely to give praise or positive attention to the behavior.

Communicate with facial expressions and body language to convey your feelings about the child's behavior. Even without a voice, facial expressions and body language, the best way to tell your child how disappointed by his behavior.

With the logical consequences. Let the consequences or the effects of their actions, to teach children appropriate behavior.  For example, scribble on the wall can cause he has to help you clean it or store his crayons during the day. Do not keep it too long because they just take it as revenge.

Divert his attention. If children fighting over a toy, for example, distract him with another toy.

Praise good behavior. Give your children the rules and clear guidelines on what behavior you expect, and praise when they did. For example, if tidy his toys, you will read one story. I'm sure you can develop this by recalling what he likes.

Make it easy kids doing good things. If you want the kids to tidy up his toys after playing, provide an easy access.

Give examples. Often, this is be ignored by the parents. For example, after reading a magazine, you need to restore it into the place and make sure that children see what it does.

For behaviors that are harmful and involving violence, such as hitting, use the time-out method, especially after the child is 3 years old. Sit your child in a place without distractions (not in front of the television, of course). Explain what went wrong and dangerous. The length of time-out is appropriate for the age and preferably not more than 5 minutes. Use the clocks until the child know how long he had to stay still. After time-out is complete, return as usual. Do not bob up again his guilt, and praise when he behaves well.
