Discipline in children
Nowadays, parents take lightly the task of educating their children. Since the world outside the family consumes so much time, they do not discipline their children as much as they should. The more quality time you spend with your child, the more disciplined he/she will be. Spending quality time with your child will make him/her realize that they are important to you. Sometimes children misbehave on purpose so they can call to your attention.
Some of the most important ways to educate a child are the following: be consistent about rules, model good behavior, reward the good behavior, be clear about rules, neutralize arguments, distinguish punishment from discipline, withholding privileges, and pay attention to the child´s feelings.

The rules should not be vague; it is better when the child knows what his/her parents are expecting. So this means that the parents have to be clear and be sure that the child understood their point.

Making them appreciate the things they own more and will work hard to be successful in what they want to do.
In conclusion, the job of a parent is to teach their children how to be disciplined. This can take a long time and can be really frustrating, but it is really important. Parents are the ones that shape their child, and all the hard work will be reflected on them. It is important for the child to know how to act in a civilized way around society.
