Child discipline can be challenging to many parents. Let's face it, responsible, respectful, self-controlled and truly happy children do not just pop up out of no-where. They come from families who put a lot of effort and time in TEACHING their kids how to be well behaved, respectful and happy.
However, they do not force or control them to be that way. Well disciplined kids are happy, because they can control their own behavior without much of parents constant interference.
I found this poem before I became a parent and now I read it occasionally to make sure I don't have to regret my parenting choices.
If I Had My Child to Raise Over Again
If I Had My Child to Raise Over Again
I'd finger-paint more, and point the fingers less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less and know to care more.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.
I'd teach less about the love of power, And more about the power of love.
