1 Discipline & Guidance The keys to well-behaved children.

2 Discipline Techniques Each child is different and different things will work for each child.

3 Positive Statements  Clearly State what the child is expected to do instead of telling them what not to do  Example: “Walk in the house” vs. “Don’t run in the house”  Get down on the child’s eye level to talk

4 Change these into Positive Statements: 1. Don’t stand on the table!!! 2. You are being very bad! 3. Don’t chew with your mouth open, that’s disgusting! 4. I can see your underwear. Put your dress down now!

5 Redirect Attention  If a child is doing something you do not want them to do….give them something else to do.  Distract them with another option  Example: Have them jump on a trampoline instead of a bed

6 Reverse Attention  Ignore negative behavior when possible and reinforce the positive  POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT  Example – if their room is always messy, but one day they happen to have a really clean corner, then make a big deal out of the clean corner!

7 Time Out  Remove child from situation causing heightened emotion until they have calmed down  Used sparingly, after other techniques have been applied  Use a place with NO distractions  One minute for each year of age  Make an effort to notice when child makes better choice after a time out

10 Setting Limits  Setting a guideline for behavior  State limits clearly and firmly  Use consequences as a form of discipline when rules are broken  Give your child the WHY for the limits.

11 Setting Limits - MORE  Some parents struggle with setting limits, but limits are GOOD for kids. Limits show children what to do and say and help them cope with their impulses and anxieties.
