Discipline

It’s inevitable (and normal): At some point, your sweet little one is going to push boundaries and act out in obnoxious ways. The question is, What are you going to do about it?

 

The truth is, different discipline strategies work for different kids. And while a time out may work for a toddler, it may no longer work for a middle schooler. Below, find articles about child discipline (including one from discipline guru Dr. Thomas Phelan of 1-2-3 Magic) and threads from our discussion forum about tips and tricks that have worked for our parent members.
