It should be inculcated in children in such a way that it becomes internalized and a way of life for them. Discipline is an ability or skill that preserves good behavior even in a situation of chaos and confusion. It is not possible to use just a single technique when trying to teach children discipline. The Eclectic approach uses different strategies, theories and guidance principles to help children be disciplined. (American Humane Association) We should consider the ages and stages of the children and the cultural, social and socio economic background of the children before deciding on the discipline strategies.

Heider and Newcomb's theory was mostly looking at the interaction between two people (interpersonally) and the conflicts that arose between them. When two people have conflicting opinions or tension is felt between another person, it is more likely persuasion will occur. Because if no tension was felt between the two parties, or there were no conflicting opinions there would be no need to persuade each other. If you think about it persuasion occurs only because there is tension between two facts, ideas or people. Charles Larson writes in his book, Persuasion, Reception and Responsibility, “another approach to the consistency theory is congruency theory, by Charles Osgood and Percy Tennenbaum (1955)” (p.82).
“If I chose to do it or say it, I must believe in it.” asserts the psychologist Leon Festinger (as cited in Psychology: Eighth Edition in Modules, 2007, p.731). When we become aware that our actions contradict our attitudes, we tend to revise our attitudes. This statement fits Festinger’s cognitive dissonance theory that asserts that we act to reduce discomfort or dissonance, an unpleasant tension, we experience when two of our thoughts or cognitions are inconsistent. Mkimmie, et al. (2003) investigated the impact of social support on cognitive dissonance arousal in their experiment, “I’m a Hypocrite, but So Is Everyone Else: Group Support and the Reduction of Cognitive Dissonance.” The psychologists aimed to test the impact of social support on dissonance by testing two hypotheses.
