How To Get The Best Education Possible: Tip #14

It is very hard being a parent in this day and time, and how you discipline your child is a very important part of parenting.  We discussed the parent that is too easy and too harsh.  Today we will look at the parent who truly tries hard to balance disciplining their child.

Tip #14: A parent must find a balance when disciplining their child.

1. Parents who try to be balanced when disciplining their child gives their child choices when it is appropriate and guides the child into making good decisions.
2. The parent that is balanced when disciplining is consistent and loving, while letting the child know the bad behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
3. The balanced parent lets the child know that there are consequences for their bad behavior and holds them accountable for their actions in a fair way.
4. The parent who is balanced with discipline sees their child realistically and has realistic expectations for their child.
5. The balanced parent gives their child love, self worth, and respect.  Therefore, this helps build the child's confidence and self-esteem when they are out in the world and have to make important decisions. 

We can only hope our children grow into healthy, independent, contributing citizens.  You can do everything possible and many children still make bad choices and decisions.  All we can do as parents is to be as balanced as possible when correcting and directing our children.  Hopefully, you have the confidence in the school your child attends to work as partners in educating and help directing your child into young adulthood.  These are only the opinions of a mother of 5, grandmother of 8, and educator of over 22 years.  There is no scientific study or data in my discipline theory.  Only life experiences.  I truly wish everyone who reads this the wisdom and patience to mold and develop their child to be able to reach their true potential and see every dream come to past in their child's life.
