7 discipline mistakes all moms make

Jul!a Jul!a
Ok, first things first, everybody parents differently and there are NO absolutely correct things that every parent should do. Sure, there are things every parent shouldn't do, but in the end it all comes down to what's right for you and your children.

That being said, I did think this was an interesting read all the same. This article talks about the most common ways that parents discipline and what things they could be doing instead. These aren't hard and fast rules that every parent should follow, but I really do think it's worth a read.

I don't have children of my own so I'm not able to speak for how any of the advice here has helped me personally, but I have seen some of the "bad" techniques used by friends. I hate seeing it, but I don't usually say anything because since I've never been a parent, I feel as though any opinions I might have are null because I don't have that experience.

I did pass this article on to some of my parent friends and they said they appreciated it all the same though.

I think the article is pretty on point when it comes to general things to keep in mind. Like you said, every child is different, as is each parents parenting style, but what it comes down to is warmth and structure. If children feel that there is predictability in their life that informs expectations/rules/way s of relating/responsibilit y/safety ect., and then is followed with a loving connection...children tend to thrive.

I'm not a parent either, but it seems like a good article. I was especially glad that they mentioned the "all talk and no action" mistake. I have seen this so many times.

I'm not a parent, but I work with young children and their parents and I have seen these mistakes often. When a parent learns some of the good techniques mentioned in the article, the children usually appreciate it more and have better behavior.

I've seen this too, it's so terrible.

(Disclaimer: I'm not a parent) I didn't read all of the article, but part of it contradicted with what I've read elsewhere: that you should point out what other kids are doing well, as a way to get your child to recognize good behavior. I don't think that's such a good plan, as it can come across as comparing your child to another child. I feel like it's better to address the behavior and not make comparisons between children.

I definitely agree about the "don't be so negative" tip, though. I think that would help create a more positive atmosphere overall, so the child can focus on things he's doing instead of what he's not doing.
