Top Myths about Discipline Busted

by Mothers Pride Preschool

It is an essential quality to impart to your children. It assists them in remembering exercising self-control and self-management. Most of the times, in the eagerness to discipline a child we parents sometimes go overboard and adopt manners which has an opposite effect on their psyche and instead work in an absolutely opposite manner, says a senior child psychologist at one of the best preschools in Gurgaon.

Let us have a look at few such discipline myths that have been divulged by top professionals from best play schools in Gurgaon:

·         Spanking or hitting the child:


It is the most commonly used discipline measures that traditionally parents take to make a child more disciplines. Some parents still believe in this age-old tradition of hitting or hurting a child physically to teach discipline; however, it is the most illogical and stupid idea of physically hitting a child in order to make them more discipline. Instead, it gives rise to many behavioral issues such as aggression, or defiance. In order to make them more disciplines, it is better to encourage with positive reinforcements and saying words of motivation, says a senior child expert at one of the best preschool in Gurgaon.


·         Punishment makes them behave in a better manner:


It is again another big myth thinking that if the child fears of punishment he/she will behave in a proper manner. Parents need to understand that sometimes they do things in order to get parents’ attention. It is better to show empathy and teach them positive ways of interaction and behavior, advise many professionals in best play schools in Gurgaon.


·         Showing affection spoils the child:


Yet another biggest myth is to think that love and affection and pampering them with spoil them and make them ill-mannered. In order to make them feel secured, valued, and attached to the child it is needed to make them feel special and love them; however you spoil them you agree to their every demand, says a senior consultant at one of the best preschools in Gurgaon.


·         Yelling will make a point:


Children are full of energy and indulge in loud and chaotic behavior, in such moments it is not wise to yell at them to make them behave. When it becomes common, they simply think that it is a normal behavior to yell at them and they stop reacting to it, says a child psychologist at one of the best preschools in Gurgaon. The idle behavior should be to speak gently to her and make them understand what you want them to do in a proper manner for a more decent reply.



·         Strictness helps in raising a well-disciplined child:


Many parents think that being strict makes them do what they want them to do and raise a well- behaved child; however, imposing usually drives a child who lacks empathy. Instead, we must make them learn what is right and what is wrong instead of forcing them to follow instructions.

When it comes to teaching discipline to a child there are many other myths which we must consider reviewing before we apply to our parenting style. All the best!
