I often have parents of young children ask, “When do we start to discipline?” Or they say “Isn’t my child to young?” Parents with teenagers often seem to feel the pressure to find the right balance of giving their children freedom.
I recommend that you think of discipline as the most important tool to reach your ultimate goal as a parent. When I ask parents what their ultimate goals are they say a variety of answers: I want my children to be happy. I want my children to share my values. I want my children to be successful. To reach any of these goals you need to respond to their discipline needs appropriately. Use the right techniques for the right developmental stages.
