Is Parenting Toddlers With Discipline A Good Idea?

In this article, we’ll be looking at some other things you can do…

Children between 1 and 4 can be very difficult sometimes. The most difficult part here is to keep your cool. I know it’s almost impossible sometimes, but you really don’t want to get to the point where you “lose” it. Let me share some tips and ideas with you, that might help you dealing with your toddlers in the future…

In the past 10-20 years, we’ve learned that hitting our children isn’t the way to go. And in the recent years, we are moving more and more away from using discipline, especially when we are talking about kids in the toddler age.

If you’re using discipline to raise your children, you’ll only accomplish children that act out of fear and because they are afraid of you… They won’t learn from their mistakes or act because they know what’s right and wrong.

Another thing we’ve learned in the past decade or so, is that this age between 1 and 4 are the perfect time to show your children unconditional love. However, what often happens is that we’ll show our children a lot of love when they are babies, but as soon as they grow older, we expect them to act as adults (I’m exaggerating a bit here, but I hope you know what I’m mean  here).  

Please, don’t dwell in the past… If you haven’t been the best parent up until now, there’s no need to let that stop you. You can always change your patterns and one way of doing so (when it comes to your children) is to start showing them how much you love them.

Make sure that their needs are met and make sure that they know you’ll always love them… no matter what! It’ll pay off when they get older.

So… what should you do instead of disciplining them? Keep it cool and be consistent. When you say no to let them have an ice cream, it’s important that you are consistent.

If you give them the ice cream later you’ll only learn your children that if they keep bugging you, they’ll eventually get what they want.

It takes time to be a good parent and none of us knew what to do the first time we had an uncontrollable child in our hands…

Remember that it’s always better to realize that you wasn’t consistent that realizing that you lost your temper.
