The word discipline, to me, does not necessarily mean punishment. Parents can use discipline as more of a teaching moment for their child. I believe that this characteristic makes for good parenting and I feel as though every parent should do it because discipline provides the foundation for children’s self-control. It is important that we consistently express what we approve or disapprove when it comes to a child’s behavior as the child will start to internalize those standards and begin to act on them. I also believe that discipline is a key part in being a good parent because it teaches children important life skills.
In order to have a better child in the future, parents should educate their children more with teaching them the positive influences such: family time, respect, and positive attitudes, so their child would not get his needs from other uneducated places such as: TV, video games, and wrong environments.

Parents should put more time educating their children and spend more time with them so the children can learn from them. A child’s role model should be his or her parents when they cannot have them as the ones they are proud of they choose others and start following them.
Consistency is the key to establishing rules. “Whatever the age of your child, it's important to be consistent when it comes to discipline. If parents don't stick to the rules and consequences they set up, their kids aren't likely to either.” (Reviewed by: Jennifer Shroff Pendley, 2011) This works for both punishment and rewards. If a child knows that there are rewards for being good they will often seek those rewards. When it comes to disciplining your children you will find that children differ and what works with one child may not work with another.
Being a parent is one of the most important things in life. It means a lot of responsibility because the way you raise up a child will affect not only its life but also lives of many people around it. Because of that, thinking about how to raise a child and how to ensure that he/she will grow up to be a kind and caring human being with correct moral principles is very important. There are many strategies that parents can adopt when raising a child, and deciding which one is the best can be challenging. Parenting styles differ from culture to culture, and it can even differ from family to family.
The proper guidance given will allow a child to know that it is better to do the right thing. They will also learn that doing the right thing will make them get in less trouble over all. The proper guidance given by parents is the key factor that will have the biggest impact on the lives of their children. If parents are the largest role models in children’s lives, it will show them to avoid situations that will get them into trouble. If the parents are not doing their job and giving this guidance correctly, then their children will end up getting in trouble because they were not taught any better.
Discipline is about choices and consequences. When getting disciplined your children learn how to be responsible, honest, kind, and sharing people. While they follow the rules set in place by their parents they have the chance to grow up to be well-behaved and respectful individuals. When your child disobeys you your consequences should encourage your child to stop negative behaviors and make positive choices (How to Discipline). It is important for your child to respect you and for you to respect your child.
They believe children should have opinions on the rules and they want their children’s input. They attempt to handle disagreements fairly, and respectfully. Authoritative parents know that they are in control, and tend to have the respect of their children, because though they are in charge they are not dictatorial. They are not afraid to have their ideas or ideals challenged no do they find it necessary to become overbearing just to prove a point or take challenges as personal attacks on their authority.

The first reason why a parent should discipline their child is because it will teach your child responsibility. Without discipline it is difficult to expect responsibility. Parents who set chores for their children rarely fail; because, children want to please and be helpful to their parents.

Praising an everyday event like getting ready for school on time is enough. What's important is that people should focus on the positive things their children do instead of on the negatives. Children need to be shown love and affection through both words and physical actions. Parents should tell their children often that they love them and think they're special. Some parents call their children names and/or belittle them when they are angry.

The government should also ensure that the cost of day-care is kept reasonable, so that more children can benefit from it, while giving their parents the freedom and opportunity to pursue and accomplish some of their goals. With all said and done, I think day-care is not a bad place for a child to be after all, as long as no one takes advantage of the situation. This means that the people supervising the children in day-care centers should not take advantage of their parents’ absence to mistreat them, and neither should the parents use day-care as an excuse not to spend quality time with their young ones.
