Are You Disciplining in Anger?
Signs of Destructive Discipline
Christine Hierlmaier-Nelson, communications specialist with Expressive Ink Communications in Foreston, Minnesota, and author of Green Yellow Go! Nat Knows Bananas, a Pre-K book that teaches patience.
According to Hierlmaier-Nelson and other communication experts, you may need to rethink how you discipline (and learn how to calm yourself) if you find yourself:
- Wanting to punish instead of instruct your child
- Feeling out of control
- Being embarrassed by your child’s behavior
- Wanting to assert your authority as the parent
Learn how to keep your cool and stop struggling with this problem by becoming aware of and understanding your stress reactions.
