|No parent wants to raise an out of control child, but when it comes to discipline many parents are hesitant about adopting a consistent and clear cut approach.
Often parents have trouble with discipline because they are unfamiliar with normal growth and development. As a result, sometimes a child’s adventurous and explorative sprit is often mistaken for a behavioral problem rather than a normal stage of early childhood development.
In the first years, from birth to age 2, babies and toddlers are naturally curious creatures. They learn about their environment by tasting, touching and trying everything.
During this stage of development, creating a childproofed environment will help eliminate the constant need to say no. During this stage of development redirecting your child’s attention and distraction are good techniques for discipline.
