No Bad Kids – Toddler Discipline Without Shame (9 Guidelines) | Janet Lansbury

I have pondered this thought with regards to discipline for Jacob. In the article in the above link you can read some great guidelines when it comes to disciplining your toddler.

I am convinced that there is a real lack of respect for adults when it comes to disciplining children. I know when I was a child, if I was told to “go to my room”, I went. I did not want to deal with the wrath from my dad when he came home, so I just went. Nowadays, I just feel that children lack “respect for adults decisions”, so that’s why they don’t listen and test their independence.

Now don’t get me wrong I love to teach Jacob to be independent, but how do we teach them to “respect our decisions” when it comes to disciplining them. I don’t think I have figured that out yet.

I definately believe in positive discipline, but when you are exhausted, rushed or just don’t feel like fighting that goes right out the window. We pick and choose our battles and this causes inconsistency. I know because I am experiencing this.

My sister just brougt me this book: “Positive Discipline for Preschoolers” by Jane Neslen I am looking forward to reading this.

Would love to know your thoughts on how you discipline your toddler in a positive, productive way?
