Using correct discipline with children in parenting is essential to promote good development in their lives.
Discipline is essential in the life of any child. They need it to feel secure and to know what is expected of them at any time, within a framework of flexibility and affection. In addition to helping you in the present, they will also help you in your future. They will be able to develop what good and evil mean and will also be able to develop moral skills, essential for their personal growth.
Discipline helps them understand what is acceptable behavior and what is not. They will also learn to respect authority when discipline is done properly. Children must learn to respect the authority figure at home (parents) in order to respect it outside the home.
it is done fairly and comes from the love of a parent. If they cannot learn to respect authority at home, it will not be favorable for their future. To achieve all this it is necessary that they learn with rules, norms and limits at home. They will learn to behave correctly, to know what is expected of them and thus, in the future, they will learn to make the best decisions for themselves, thus ensuring that they develop as successful people and balanced adults .
Discipline should not be instilled through fear, far from it. Yelling or harsh discipline is not the right thing to do. You never discipline yourself when a parent is angry. Discipline is created and is truly valuable and effective when done in a calm state.
DISCIPLINE AFFECTS CHILDREN’S DEVELOPMENT
There are several forms of parenting: authoritarian, negligent, forgiving or permissive, and the flexible. Flexible discipline is what is really worth practicing for good child development. All parents must strive to have authority over their children, it must be a healthy authority full of flexibility, love and respect for their children. In this way they will become balanced adults, and it depends largely on how parents exercise discipline with their children.
With a flexible authority approach children will learn to respect authority and make good decisions, they will also have better self-esteem and self -confidence. On the other hand, if the parents choose any of the other three forms of parenting, the children will grow dependent, incapable and also their self-esteem will be seriously damaged.
Parents with flexible authority will be able to allow their children to grow up with greater independence, this will allow them to have greater leadership capacity. Social skills, self-control and self-reliance are more developed, and these are qualities that make children grow into adults with good abilities in every way.
When correct authoritarian parenting methods are used, children will develop respect for authority figures that will extend into adulthood. What you are teaching your children now with these discipline methods will cause them to develop not only a sense of morality of what is right and what is wrong, and they will also develop a deep respect for authority figures. Knowing that they have a voice and vote but that they must also respect rules and limits. They will know that teamwork is the best way to do things well, to seek the common good. This will help them too. Enhance maptia and assertiveness in their lives, two fundamental aspects.
The other parenting methods (authoritarian, negligent, and forgiving) are negative and have consequences that affect the child as an adult. The objective is to raise the children so that they are prepared to leave the nest one day and be able to face the world.
The discipline approach used therefore affects children’s development. It is necessary to establish fair rules and limits for the child and according to his age and abilities. Consequences for correct and incorrect behavior are also necessary.
