If possible, try to avoid physical punishment. It won't work in a long run.

I used to get physical punishment, but I don't think it did me right. I actually ended up being rebellious. So, my suggestion for parents is, discipline with love. Do not get physical. try to talk calmly and make your kids understand why he is being disciplined.

I cannot agree more. Children follow their parents if they talk to them calmly. Just try to make them understand the reason why they are being punished for doing something bad.

It's not really good if we hit our children because they are like sponge, what we do, they will do it too. Better talk to them in calmly manner and let them understand and taught them what is right and wrong.

My parents used to send me to my room when I fought with my sister. I have used time out with my kids but I find that taking away a favorite toy or game reminds them to behave better.

Discipline works best when it’s firm but fair. This means you set limits and consequences for your child’s behavior while also encouraging good behavior with praise, rewards and other strategies.

Physical punishment, for example, smacking, doesn’t teach children how to behave. When parents use physical punishment, children are more likely to have challenging behavior, anxiety or depression. There’s also a risk that smacking might hurt your child.

Decide on family rules and make sure they follow it. When kids are older you can involve them with making the rules.

Children learn by watching what you do. Showing your child the behavior you like by doing it yourself will help your child learn. For example, if you want your child to sit down to eat, sitting down together to eat family meals can help children learn this behavior.

Praise your child for good behavior. When your child gets praise for behaving well, he’s likely to want to keep behaving well.

Decide on a consequence for breaking a family rule. For example, you might withhold pocket money from an eight-year-old if she hasn’t done her household chores. But if she hits her brother, time-out is a better consequence.

Set limits and stick to them. Make it clear what is allowed and what's not. This would teach your kid to learn about rules.

There should always be consequences if they do something wrong because if they can get away with it, they'll get bolder the next time. Kids need to know to follow rules.

Taking a few minutes a day to spend one-on-one with your child, distraction-free and doing something they want to do, will reap immense rewards in their behavior.

Start by setting some rules that your child clearly understands. When implementing discipline, be consistent and set rules that encourage your child to succeed. Affirm when your child does something right and encourage their best behavior.

I wouldn't recommend spanking because it promotes an aggressive behavior in kids. It would only make them more rebellious to rules.

Establish house rules. Regardless the age of your child, it’s important that they know the difference between appropriate behavior and inappropriate behavior. Let your child know what you expect of them by setting house rules.

Establish a routine. Children thrive with routines as they help them feel safe, secure, and as if they can anticipate what’s to come. If you notice that your child struggles with behaviors at the same time each day or melts down when they feel tired, take note of these things and create a routine that can accommodate their needs.

Rules and consequences will vary by your child’s age and maturity level. A young child may need a rule not to hit, while an older child may need rules around curfew. Be willing to approach them with a degree of flexibility as your child matures or needs new boundaries.
