Non-Violent Discipline

Non-violent discipline for Kids

Discipline is a positive force, while punishment is intrinsically negative because it is a reaction to bad behavior.

Be sure to separate the two and focus on teaching your child, the right way to behave and the difference between good and evil.

Pulling, slapping or slapping a child is not the way to discipline them effectively, and you will find encouraging benefits and positive behaviors to have far better effects in the long run.

Be a Positive Model

Children observe the adults around them and the environment in which they live and shape the way they think and behave.

As they adopt the wrong behavior of their parents, it is essential for parents to see how they act and change their behavior, especially before disciplining children to act the same way.

It's simple: if you're messy, your kids act the same way.

"We see children repeating words and phrases used by their parents all the time. Keeping some television shows even after the children are in bed as well as keeping the arguments out of reach of their children can help contain this.

"Children learn by looking at their parents and other adults around them - it boils down to reinforced behaviors."


Discipline should primarily involve the reward of good behavior, as this encourages them much more than anything else.

"Reward them even for the smallest things (for example, if there was no problem lying down) - a child will probably not have much praise."

If a child continues to be badly worn, reward graphics are a technique that can be used to motivate them to change the way but try not always to do it for material gains.

Evacuate stars for awful conduct and set objectives for treats - for instance, they may need to get ten stars to allow their candy or allowance. Or preferentially the treatment may be something they like, and you can do together like reading a new book or reading a board game.


In the end, discipline is ineffective without good communication.

Always let your child know what they have done wrong and what is expected of them before punishing them in a clear way that they can understand.

The explanation must be done quickly, but calmly, so they know that their behavior has been wrong and will not be tolerated.

"If a child always acts late in the afternoon, he may be hungry, wet or have a nap, try not to punish a child for something that results from fatigue or hunger. Avoid. "

Honor the feelings.

When your child is taken by adrenaline and other fighting or flying hormones, he cannot learn. Instead of giving lectures, make a "Time-In" where you stay with your child and let yourself have your collapse in your attentive presence. Your goal is to provide a calm "waiting environment" for your child's grief. Expressing emotions with a safe, caring, and accepted adult is what helps children do without these feelings and learn to calm down so that they can adjust their feelings eventually. Do not try to reason with him during the emotional storm. Then it will feel much better, and closer to you than it will be open to your advice on why we do not say "Shut Up."
