Discipline Demands Attention

Why does it seem discipline is always on parents' minds? As a professional speaker, why is it my #1 requested presentation? Because it never ends! Discipline is ongoing. You can't lie back on your hind-end with the remote and expect kids to behave.

The need for guiding a child's behavior occurs from infancy into adolescence. Discipline is needed when a tot is behaving inappropriately and you need to change that behavior. Some parents mistakenly think that once they correct their kid, the problem is solved. But children need constant & consistent reminders on how to act. They're looking to you for guidance.

Yep, discipline is exhausting but, hang in there! Be patient with yourself and with your kids.
