Disciplinary measures

The following disciplinary techniques can help you to effectively discipline your children:

  • Use a welcome distraction to the child forget about the bad behavior.
  • To stop the bad behavior of the child, firmly say "no", looking into his eyes.
  • Take the child when he misbehaves, especially if there was no reaction on his part to your firm "no."
  • Use reception fading reaction to distract yourself from possible adverse effects. While your child is safe, you can step aside and not pay attention to him, that he was no one to show disobedience, especially if your baby is prone to outbursts of anger. Increased attention to a child who misbehaves, can enhance his bad behavior.
  • Be consistent, the child has learned to accept the results of their actions. For example, if he throws a toy box, it will not be able to play it.
  • Use logical consequences (rewards). For example, if a child does not put the wheel into place, do it in his place, but with the condition that he not be able to ride it to the end of the day. For older children, the penalty for not tucked machine can serve as a week without the right to drive and so on.
  • Take a time out - to deprive a child of his time, a positive attitude and attention, he does not listen.
  • Depriving a child of privileges - a very effective way to discipline him (especially for older children). Find out what he likes or what brings him pleasure (video games, film rental, walks in the park, talking on the phone) and, in case of disobedience, he is Collect.



Timeout - a very effective method that is applied to children between the ages of eighteen to twenty-four months. After the incident of disobedience can use this technique - so you deprive a child at the time of communication (any parental reaction and cries, and battering). Prepare a chair, which can be located in any part of the house, a place on the floor, children's bed, and so on, in short, any place where the child will be isolated from any communication with anyone. Note the time of the sentence - it usually lasts depending on the age, at the rate of one minute per year of life.

Using the time-out for kids, toddlers, giving them the opportunity to relax and gather strength. In most cases, the baby will not sit on a chair during a timeout, even a couple of minutes, and you should not make him wait until the end of time-out if he has calmed down.

If you want your child to follow instructions, ask him about it hard, but pleasant voice. Give your child about five seconds to think, if there was no reaction, look him straight in the eye and say, "If you do not do what I asked for (a), go to the place of time-out." Give this instruction loud and stern voice, to attract baby's attention, but the important thing is not to get angry and yell.

Then quietly take him to a chair for a timeout, ignoring all his protests and promises, saying, "You stay in the chair as long as I did not let you get up." Now the child must remain in his chair as long as he does not calm down after the application of such penalties. Please note that for older children with challenging behavior, the timeout does not begin until they calm down, even if it may take a few minutes or hours. This condition can not be applied to children who are just learning to walk, or to children of preschool age.

After the end of the timeout older children can agree to perform their task, and in the case of further disobedience they have to go back to the place of the timeout. But this method is not necessary for kids.

If the child leaves the time-out place, bring it back, and warned: "If you get up one more time, then I will take action (deprive you of your favorite class / object, and so on)." If he leaves the place again timeout, put it back, but follow the previous warning. If he continues to leave the place of the timeout, you can send it to another room (at the same time depriving it of all toys, TV, video games and other).

Initially use this disciplinary method need only one or two types of misconduct child.

Remember that this is just one of many options for using time-out. You still have to improve it so that it fit your style of parenting, as well as to change it depending on the temperament of the child. If this method is not suitable for you or your child is not subject to the conditions of reception, and you have to use it more than two times a day, better to look for another type of disciplinary correction.

And always remember that it is better to support and encourage good behavior than to try to get rid of the bad symptoms.

Time-out can also be used outside the home: in a shop, restaurant, and others. If a child misbehaves in a certain situation, for example, at the grocery store, you have to stop before you go to the store and do not by the rules, which awaits your child . To warn him of the consequences of disobedience in the store, if it behaves badly, then you need to apply measures (use the method of time-out).

What if you find that terribly sweating after physical education classes, and you with no deodorant? Think about it.
