Six Ways To Discipline Your Child Without Shouting At Them

About 70% of parents shout at their children at some point, this is something that most parents do until it becomes second nature to them. According to research, shouting at a child does not prevent the child from doing something he or she is not supposed to do. Instead, it encourages your child(ren) to engage in more negative behaviors, which leads to more shouting.

One thing that parents fail to understand is that shouting at a child does not teach them how to control their bad behavior. For example, if you shout at your child(ren) to read his books, they will not learn how to read peacefully. So, how do you discipline your child(ren) without yelling at them?

Here are six ideas to get you started:

1. Create a set of clear rules.

Setting rules in the home will help you avoid shouting at your child (ren). Create clear rules that your child(ren) will be able to obey. Instead of shouting at your child when the rules are disobeyed, follow up with swift punishment (ren).

2. Establish Consequences Ahead Of Time

After you've established some household rules, the following step is to come up with a list of punishments for breaking each one. You are informing your child(ren) ahead of time through this medium.

"If you don't finish your assignments, there won't be any food for you," for example. It is then up to your youngster to decide whether or not to work with it. Think about which repercussions will be beneficial to your child (ren).

3. Encourage your child (ren)

You are doing your child(ren) a favor when you encourage them to follow the rules. Take them out or support them with the activities they enjoy. For example, if your child does a good job with his or her duties, praise him or her for it. You can also encourage your youngster if he or she is having difficulty with a home rule.

4. Figure Out Why You Yell

If you're the type of parent that yells at your kids all the time, take a step back and consider why you yell. Look for strategies to calm yourself if you yell at your children because you are always furious.

This will assist you in learning how to regulate and control your Temper.

5. Issue a Warning to Your Child(ren) If Necessary

When necessary, as a parent, you can issue a warning to your child(ren). For example, you could say, "After you finish your assignments, you watch cartoons." When you do that, you're informing people of the probable consequences of following a specific guideline.

6. Follow Up

Once you've established a specific penalty for breaking a rule, stick to it. You're showing your child(ren) how serious you are by doing so. For example, if the penalty for not completing their homework is a denial of food, follow up right away.

That way, your child will make the best choices possible in the future.
