Discipline for 4 Years to 12 Years


This age group will hopefully have a grasp on what their parents or caregivers expect from them for their behaviour. Whether discipline is effective or not can be difficult but still the same rules apply as before. No spanking, no yelling and come from a place of love. The better we discipline a child, the more success they will encounter as they grow older.  This is one of our roles as parents or caregivers. When there is no discipline, it is a dis-service to the child. This is not to say a child of any age should have an army drill sergant barking out orders. Far from it. Most Early Childhood experts believe that the best forms of discipline are not things like spanking or yelling, but rather Positive Reinforcement, Redirecting, Verbal Instruction/Explanation, Time-outs, Groundings, Establishment of Rules and Withholding Privileges. To one degree or another, I use all of these, except of course grounding.


For this age group, 4 years to 12 years, the most effective forms of discipline are:


• Positive Reinforcement

• Redirecting

• Verbal Instruction/Explanation

• Time-outs

• Groundings

• Establishment of Rules

• Withholding Privileges
