Discipline is about choices and consequences. When getting disciplined your children learn how to be responsible, honest, kind, and sharing people.

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.
This could be related to the mental abuse that is inflicted on the children. The fact that when children are taken from their homes and put into foster care they are often put into a life of physical and mental abuse during their care, along with the effects of increased rates of crime after they are released from foster care.

While Max battles for authority, his mother demonstrates many parenting techniques, which have led to severe consequences in relation to his poor behaviour. Bad behaviour influences a child's long-term growth as a human being and stunts their journey from child to mature adult. Children develop a sense of acceptable behaviour based on the methods employed by their parents. Negative behaviour comes as a result of the child feeling insecure, becoming aggressive, angry, antisocial, demanding, dependant, undisciplined and also developing a hateful desire to ‘get back at the world.’ These bad behavioural aspects are outcomes reached as the parent has reacted to become over-controlling with orders, reminders of poor behaviour and warnings. With the parent being the unquestioned boss, it is common for the child with an authoritarian in the household to feel irritable, and get angry and temperamental quite quickly.
These children tend to lose control over their own lives, bodies, and minds creating catastrophic obstacles to build up in their lives and causing themselves to become weakened and vulnerable due to being confronted by fear that they cannot endure. The many lives of abused children are misguided as they mature because the events that they encounter during their early childhood years influence the construction of their future and behaviors. Child abuse is the barbarous act of maltreatment directed towards children that includes physical abuse, emotional abuse, and sexual molestation which all serve as elements towards leading to the destruction of their lives. Physical abuse is defined as a purposely intended act of atrociously causing physical harm to a child. This type of offense is generally inflicted by a parent or guardian who is accountable for providing for a child’s welfare.
It is not just more crying though, it also children are crying for longer periods of time (Oppawsky, 2000). Thinking about it, it makes sense for this to occur. Divorce is a sad time for any child because no one wants to see his or her parents split up. In Oppawsky’s (2000), report children also experienced different variations of sadness as well as feeling shame with what was occurring in their family unit. Problems with emotional instability arise when children start to express anger towards their parents.
Reasons were because they do not want any involvement, guilt of maybe reporting a relative, fear of retribution, afraid of starting trouble, or home privacy among others. The traumatic effect of the physical, mental, and emotional abuse marked Pelzer’s life. Through a psychological point of view, it is visible that there are many ways the abuse affected David. David was mistreated in ways that made him wonder why. I was also left feeling perplexed and sometimes feeling frustrated, I wanted to know why David 's mother singled him out for her abuse.
If a child is abused by a family member or other adult, the parents of the abused child can feel guilty and become emotionally distressed from not protecting their child (Oregon Department of Human Services, 2009). The emotional stress that occurs from child abuse can ultimately tear a family apart. As recommended by the Oregon Department of Human services (2009) it is important for adults to believe a child when they report being abused because it might just save their
"I was an only child, and her constant criticism and putting me down made me feel terrible about myself, and it made me double my efforts to please her" (Aileen). Harsh words can humiliate a child and leave them ashamed of their life, with no respect towards their parents. "Words are still damaging when you have one loving parent who uses his or her words with care and one who is verbally aggressive and abusive" (Ann Polcari). Verbal abuse "inflicts deep emotional pain", leading to children having bitterness. Yelling in a child's face is not the best way to correct them when they are young.
