Often when I think about disciplining our kids I get the feeling that is a “touchy” subject. Why? – Because we (the parents) don’t agreed to one single technique or way to discipline our children, also because to many of us parents the word “discipline” sounds like a punishment or something we shouldn’t be doing to our little angels. Of course we want to see them happy all the time and “discipline” to them equals pain, punishment or work, and we can’t tolerate seeing the suffer. But, Are they the only ones who need discipline or is US the parents that first and foremost need to get our thoughts together in the first place? I mean let’s have this clear:  You love your kid, so, being that said, one of the ways to show love to them and one of our biggest responsibility with them is making sure that they are growing in a safe environment, and we don’t understand sometimes that being safe means that they need to adjust to a society where rules exist and if we love them so much we will want them to fit in with this rules, now again, the word “Rules” for many of us has a negative meaning, like if we’re punishing them again, we get the idea that if they follow rules all the time they won’t be free and will grow up with so many “traumas”…So once again here it comes the question: Are they the only ones who need discipline or is US the parents who need to get our thoughts together about discipline in the first place? Are we parents understanding the deep meaning of happiness and success? I think many many times, we are not in the same page, we are confused and there for our kids will be confused too, is very important that the adults have this thoughts and basic values clear, an strong and firm idea of what is the type of life we want our children to have and then a set of rules to follow are really key for their safety and happiness in their future. We need to understand and be ok with the fact that discipline is the way to obtain success. Discipline is the only way and yes, is going to demand from them some sort of “pain”, the “pain” to quit maybe eating candy for dinner or the “pain” to have an schedule for video games or electronic, the “pain” to have to stop screaming in certain times and places, so yes, it will demand “pain” from your kid and that is ok because with that amount of necessary sacrifice (or “pain” for them ) we are teaching a lesson,  the lesson that anything important in life come with hard work and sacrifice So for us parents let’s get clear the idea that we adore our kids, we dont want to see them suffer, but if we want to see them truly happy, we have to apply discipline. I prefer to watch them complain about not getting their desires immediately than the idea that they get older and not living a plenty life because they will think they can do whatever they want without putting any hard work or sacrifice. We can have fun and joke with them and we can be silly and go their way too, any extreemes are not good, they can be kids and bee free to express themselves if they are first following the rules they are supposed to and if this is not happening then they will have to suffer consequences. Let’s not forget that is in the process where they will appreciate the value of their effort.
