how to discipline our children with love

I’ve got these nifty tips in one of the seminars I’ve attended a few weeks. Love Institute {yes, there is one!}, a company that provides systematic programs, services + curriculum catering to individual’s relationship needs.

This is the Love Institute’s take on how to discipline our children without threats + bribes

The ABC’s of Parenting

  1. Attention should be given
  2. Build your child’s self-worth
  3. Communicate regularly + well
  4. Discipline means to teach, to instruct
  5. Enhance couple or individual relationship

How-to’s of Discipline

  1. Good discipline results I confident, caring + responsible children
  2. Spanking, shouting, threatening or bribing may not always work
  3. Agree on house rules + implement it
    1. Example of house rules: eating, TV/computer time, allowance, study time, bedtime or playing outdoors
    2. Natural consequence {use these if agreements are not met} – if a child does not eat he will go hungry
    3. Logical consequence – if a child loses a book he pays for it. Take note that you have to make consequences reasonable, related to offense, respectful + with the absence of anger

Note: This is taken from Helping our Children Do Well in School Book + Manual by Queena Lee Chua + Maribel Sison Dionisio

  1. Great tips. Straight to the point and practical tips, all designed to enhance the well being of the child. Thank you for sharing your tips with us and look forward to more posts like this.

  2. I find that spanking will only work IF AND WHEN there is proper communication. as in after all the spanking and showing your kid that there is a consequence you have to explain what happened or else your child will just grow resentful towards us…
