Positive discipline needs to be enforced in the children right from a very young age if you want them to be responsible adults tomorrow. Positive discipline enforces the need to use only positive words and refrain from using a negative word.
You often need to say ‘no’ to your children, but saying a negative word repeatedly may turn your child hostile or might also make them more violent. The ideal way to enforce discipline is to make them understand the consequences of their action. It also diverts their attention. This can be done by showing them something more interesting so that you do not always have to struggle to refuse them.
Benefits Of Positive Discipline
It Enforces Understanding
Always saying ‘no’ to your children or threatening them will make them hostile and violent. If you teach your children positive discipline, they are motivated to follow your rules easily. For example, saying no to your child to drink cola can make them reach for it when you are not around. But, if you show them a video explaining the harmful ingredients of cola and its consequences in the body, they might not get tempted to drink it.
Positive Discipline Teaches Children To Be Patient
If you promise your kids a burger or a pizza on weekends instead of completely refusing them to have, it will make them patient, understanding, and trustworthy. This kind of positive discipline makes children better adults. They learn to wait for their turn and also understand the need for discipline and limit in their daily lives.
It Teaches Children To Be Kind
A child who has always been refused for everything since young turns out to be an angry and rude person. He replicates the same behavior later with their spouses and children. Better and polite behavior when enforced since childhood, makes children happy adults later. They also become great partners and parents. Such kids easily share their stuff with other children and are not violent with other kids.
It Helps You Bond Better With Your Children
When you explain everything in detail and encourage your children to have a discussion with you on varied subjects, children become closer to you. They bond better with you and are not worried about having any kind of conversation with you. Such children do not hide anything from you too. You will be overjoyed in your old age to have such caring and reliable children.
There are many benefits of positive discipline. It not only helps you bring up better children, but it also makes you a better parent. Parents who have a routine of yelling at their kids all the time, turn out to be irritated and angry with others too. Such parents do not look forward to spending quality time with their children. They always have a notion of dominating their kids. This can take a very scary turn later in life. So, bring up your children in a better way by reinforcing positive discipline.
