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.
Children raised by the authoritative parents tend to do well in all areas of growth and development and understand the value of give and take which will be helpful through out their lives.

Baumrind suggests that these parents "monitor and impart clear standards for their children’s conduct. They are assertive, but not intrusive and restrictive. Their disciplinary methods are supportive, rather than punitive. They want their children to be assertive as well as socially responsible, and self-regulated as well as cooperative" (1991). Authoritarian parenting style consists of strict rules.
To begin with, democratic society is a society which ensures equality, freedom of speech, justice for all and toleration against the minorities. Also a democratic society needs responsible and active citizens. In the study made by Terrence Lovat, Lovat aim to assist teachers, parents and caregiver to educate the children by presenting nine values which are important in a democratic society: Care and compassion for oneself and others, understanding (tolerance) , doing one’s best, fairness, honesty, integrity, respect, freedom, responsibility (Lovat, 2005) . As seen, these values are compatible with definition of a democratic society. The most responsible are the parents in educating the children these values.

Philosophy of Education Education is an essential element to the life of every person. Teachers must have a philosophy of teaching to be effective in the classroom. No matter what way of teaching an educator chooses, it should positively affect his or her students and help to keep them on track to growing into strong intelligent adults. If a child is placed in a positive environment, then it will help shape them into good citizens. According to Plato, a student's environment determines his or her morals and character.
To make sure that the lesson runs smoothly, the teachers have to create and maintain an orderly learning environment such as planning and preparation of materials, organizations, decoration of the classroom and certainly the establishment of routines and rules (Tan, Parsons, Hinson & Sardo-Brown, 2003). Why the classrooms need to be managed effectively? It is because effective classroom will maximize children’s learning opportunities (Evertson & Emmer, 2009). When there is no disruption in the classroom, the students can learn in a smooth way without being disrupted. The classroom management is also important because when a lesson run smoothly, it can undermine the student’s engagement in active learning, high-order thinking, and the social construction of knowledge (Jones & Jones, 2010).
Tacit Knowing and Education How is tacit knowing or tacit knowledge utilized in the classroom? This has been my question since discovering the term coined by Michael Polanyi and reading the excerpt of The Tacit Dimension. I have reflected on my experiences in a second grade classroom and observations of students being able to or not being able to refer to the tacit dimension in the classroom. In rethinking through Polanyi's assertion that "we can know more than we can tell", I will review ways in which students (children and adults) use intuition and other forms of tacit knowing in the classroom. I will also speak to the detrimental effects of particular school reforms such as the No Child Left Behind Act, which diminish the student's ability to use tacit knowledge in the classroom.
They show trust in them and they tend to have higher self-esteem and grades. They want their children to be assertive, socially responsible, and self-regulated. These children tend to have all of these attributes and they are likely to comply with reasonable and fair control. Parents who use the indulgent parenting style (permissive parenting) tend to be warm, inattentive, over-indulgent, place little or no demands, and grant inappropriate autonomy. These parents rarely discipline their children because they have relatively low... ... middle of paper ... ...and not get into trouble.
The best thing you can give to parenting is to be consistent with whatever you tell your child to do and their punishment. Parenting, which is somewhat akin to teaching, should be regarded as one of the three cooperative arts. Thus conceived, it calls upon parents to assist their offspring in the process of growing up, doing so by observing carefully the steps the children themselves take in the process and doing what is necessary to facilitate their progress. Parenting departs from being a cooperative art, as teaching does also, when it tries to be the active and dominant factor in the process -- when parents or teachers think that what they do should be like the molding of passive, plastic matter.
