Discipline is not cruel, no disciplining is cruel.
As conscious parents it is important to be aware of how to discipline and if it is appropriate for the child’s age, personality and behavior. Disciplining has the power to create positive or negative emotions. I encourage parents to unify in their parenting techniques and stay consistent.
Even if you’re tired of disciplining, you will reap the benefits in due time.
