The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), provides the parents and educators four discipline practices based on a positive language.
- Be an example. Teaching children the difference between good and bad, using calmed words and actions. Be coherent between what you say and what you do.
- Establish limits. Apply clear rules that the little ones can follow. Be sure of explaining these rules in terms appropriated for children ages.
- Carefully listen what they say. Be attentive to what children express. Let them finish their arguments before helping them to resolve their problems.
- Re-address any bad behavior. Sometimes, the minors have erroneous behaviors because they are bored and don’t know what path to follow. It is important to show them other action alternatives in front of a specific situation.
Take into account
The APP advises the parents not to educate using physical punishment because instead of teaching their children responsibility and self-control, such punishment increases aggressiveness and range in the children.
