As spoken of many times by many people and many books of parenting, it is essential to have discipline in the schematics of a child-parent relationship. As much as it is important and essential, and of course also imperative in the whole scenario to have friendship as a must-do aspect of a to-do list, it is also important to know that discipline is also very much an essence. If you are only a friend to your child, then the child may take advantage and assume that you will always be a friend and not yell or discipline them at any time and this is not a good balance in any way.
Discipline in parenting is totally necessary and parenting skills can be sharp by making room for both leniency and strictness as and when it is needed. Being strict is explaining something with firmness in voice and strength in character while explaining your view point to your child. This will make your child realize that he or she cannot take advantage of your niceness and not misinterpret your being a friend to him or her, as a sign of weakness, but as a strong and a good fundamental and this helps in the whole scheme of things, and this helps in good parenting discipline to maintain a good strike in balance and a good effective whole.
Discipline in parenting is today, or in other words, today’s new generation has a different way of being firm and a different way or approach to disciplining. Discipline, when it is needed, should be done without the use of any harsh words or any string language (should definitely not be used) and this, along with being clear and putting out an encouraging message along with the disciplinary message makes the child feel and realize what he or she could have done wrong and at the same time, very beautifully allows for the child to feel encouraged and confident as there is a learning that the child has made via the firm message conveyed by you, as a parent. The firm message, when mixed with encouragement or a message of strength of any kind, will give and imbibe a good lesson for your child and will help to mould him or her in a structured and a fantastic way or method.
