Child Discipline is providing a child the needed guidance and support he requires concerning an acceptable standard of behaviour.

It is training a child to behave in an acceptable way as modeled by the authority figures around him or her.

THE GOALS OF DISCIPLINE

1. To help the child develop the capacity of self regulation

2.To help the child develop a healthy self image/esteem

3. To produce an adult who can behave in a socially, mentally and emotionally responsible manner

FACTORS TO CONSIDER BEFORE YOU DISCIPLINE A CHILD.

1. UNDERSTAND YOUR PARENTING STYLE

For your discipline strategies to be effective you need to understand your own parenting/teaching style

Every parent and teacher has a way of managing/parenting/teaching their children.

You need to understand this style very well and

adapt it to the child you are dealing with

You are the one who is expected to adapt your parenting/teaching style to the child and not the other way around.

Your parenting style may also need to be improve upon so you can make maximum impact on the child

There are three major parenting styles

The three major parenting styles are

A. Authoritarian style

B. Permissive / Uninvolved style (this can also be separated but they are essentially the same)

C. Authoritative style

A. Authoritarian style:

it is the parenting/ teaching style that focuses on power to force children to comply with rigid rules or instructions whether they like it or not.

B. Permissive style / uninvolved style:

This style gives children too much of freedom, and few responsibilities. .

It does not follow up on rules and disciplines measures.

C. Authoritative style: Parents who adopt this style of parenting gives children firm and consistent rules in a kind , loving and favourable atmosphere.

The next factor to consider before you discipline a child is his natural composition - his nature, make up or characteristics.

What are his temperament, potentials, strengths, weaknesses, tendencies etc

The information will help you adopt a discipline strategy that will fit his make up

You will also prevent major damage to his emotions or personality as a child

Another point as to what to consider before you discipline a child is the child's environment

Every child's environment at home, school, neighbourhood even religious environments influence a child's emotional, social and mental development.

To influence the child effectively through discipline you will need to note that his character is not just about him but about the influence he is getting from his environment

Work on a favourable environment that will guide him along the paths you want him to toe

BASIC CHILD DISCIPLINE RULES

1. The form of discipline you adopt should not inflict injury on the child.

2. Self control is needed on the part of the parent/educator.

3. Being firm is one of the major attributes you need to apply effective disciplinary measures with children

4. As much as possible communicate the consequences of a misconducts to a child before you enforce them, and ensure you enforce them if they go against the rules

5. Avoid transfer of aggression on children as much as possible

6. Don't negotiate with your child to obey an instruction through incessant nagging or any other form of manipulation. Communicate your expectations clearly and administer discipline if he deserves it

GENERAL CHILD DISCIPLINE STRATEGIES

1. Set rules and limits you expect your child to comply with

2. Be firm about your instructions, rules and expectations

3. Model the behaviour you want to see in your child

4. Enforce discipline measures immediately after misbehaviour, not long after the misbehaviour

CHILD DISCIPLINE STRATEGIES THROUGH A THREE FOLD CORD

This aspect deals with applying discipline strategies to achieve three basic results in the life of a child that will make them become well - rounded individuals

discipline strategies as tools for: shaping children behaviour, building positive self esteem in children and helping them to develop self regulation skills.
