Discipline

One of the greatest challenges of raising a child is knowing how to properly provide discipline. Discipline is the way in which parents teach their children how they are expected to behave and what is not acceptable. It is different than punishment, which is an action that is the result of unacceptable behaviors. Discipline is an ongoing, consistent means of teaching your child and structuring his or her behavior.

Listed in the directory below you will find some additional information regarding providing discipline for your child, for which we have provided a brief overview.
