“The best discipline has nothing to do with yelling, bribing or threatening. It’s about creating motivation to get the child to want to do what you desire” – Marvin Marshall
Parenting is the journey of patience and hope. Parents make efforts each day to develop kids towards their bright future. But, kids are kids, it is their age where they do not understand certain things and tend to repeat the mistakes. Usually they are in their own playful and dream world due to which they lack the presence of mind in the moment and commit mistakes. At this time, it is to be understood that we have to nourish kids and not to harness or scold them. The scolding or anger will not lead to the desirable results. As with such a terror the kids get used to stress first and then get into depression later. Instead of scaring, stressing, we need to find a way in which kids can be nurtured calmly and positively. Instead of scolding, the kids need to be explained politely and in love form. Such a discipline training with love is called as Positive Discipline. It is a patience journey, an international school at Geneva conducted a workshop on Positive Discipline and explained parents the way to do so and develop the child towards growth.
Here are some of the ways if included they can lead towards positive discipline.
Make kids to laugh more. Instead of lecture or monotonous talk, be with them in a light mode. With such a talk move towards the learning and discipline in a light mode. Create a humor if not behaved in a certain manner. Play with them and explain them the importance of certain behavior.
Even if some mistake occurs make them first comfortable that, they cannot do certain thing but, it happened accidently by them. Make them feel trusted and positively put in their mind that they will never repeat the mistake again.
- Soft and frequent communication:
The foundation of positive discipline is the regular soft and positive talk. Let them understand the consequences, instead of stress and scolding. Communicate every day, progress towards qualitative talk each day.
- Positive involvement of parents:
Lets not make kids feel being alone, lets live the life journey together. Share and care so that parents become the true friends with kids. So that, with such a bond the kids can be disciplined easily.
