Better: Examine your own codependent relationships with your parents, spouse and others, with a therapist, support group or counselor. Physical Punishment. The purpose of discipline-from disciple, a student or follower-is to teach the child to have self-discipline. All parents want their children to have the best lives possible.

Many of them work in order to be able to buy new toys for them, others are strict because they want their children to be disciplined and goal-oriented, others give their children a choice and teach them to make decisions on their own. Every family has its own ways of upbringing, but there is one thing that all parents have in. / Top 10 Mistakes Father’s Make in Child Custody Court. By Nicholas Baker 2 Comments.

Mistakes You Should Avoid When Fighting for Custody. When a couple divorces or dissolves their relationship, one of the most emotional and difficult things they deal with is splitting custody of children. The following are mistakes that fathers mostly commit in disciplining. 1. Keep your temper under control. Do not discipline when you are angry.

Children respond best to a calm person. 2. There should be consistency in disciplining for the same wrong activity. Otherwise, the child gets confused.

3. Physical discipline like spanking is not acceptable.

Researchers also assure us that most parents don’t use a single discipline style across the board; they tend to respond differently to different kinds of misbehavior.2 But perhaps the more interesting question is how parents come to decide what constitutes “misbehavior” in the first place.

  • I’m definitely a ‘resistor’…I get SO triggered (and I admit at times disgusted) by negative emotions and the last thing I want to do is have an outburst myself so I just remove myself…which SOUNDS good but it can look like just cutting off and emotionally abandoning someone and I come across as uninvested and unfeeling and can ruin connections as a result. Help!

  • So what is so wrong with all those mistakes you say parents have been doing? The children that were raised using those techniques are decent adults now and as children did not kill their parents or the next door neighbor. We had respect for our parents, our teachers and really any adult. So take a look at the kids of today. Any comments on the violence these kids do? School shootings, parents being murdered, children killing children. What are you people thinking?

  • This fellow is funny, I mean funny!!! His mind just picks out normal things that are so funny when he tells us about it!!! Thanks Fred.

  • My daughter wouldn’t go into a bathroom alone while we at a park one day, even though the br was empty and I was right outside the door. I firmly told her if she didn’t go, we would leave and I would never take her swimming at this place again. She didn’t and I didn’t budge. She remembered it for years and and she learned a valuable lesson.
    Also, my family participated in the ADAPT Program, sponsored by the Yellow Ribbon Program. Warriors, you may think you’re good parents but if you have opportunity to participate, it’s well worth your time.

  • The most horrifying example of parenting I saw recently was my wife and I were at the Drive In, playing frisbee in the parking lot before the movie started. Two young boys ran up and asked to play and we said ok if your parents allow, who were the next car over. The parents took this opportunity to insult the kids on how troublesome and annoying they are, and that they are so clumsy they would hurt themselves.

    Just wanted to share. Modern parents are at least as trash as modern kids.

  • need more info about enforcing the structure. when the child is an unpredictable monsteraggressive, rude, insulting, violent, disrespectful and hatefuland that 2-4yrs-old window passed a couple years back, what can be done to stop chronic bad behavior, when the child is only with you half the time & the behavior is ignored by the other parent… God help me.

  • I feel something that is mostly missed in this video is a key point. You’re not trying to punish your kid, you’re trying to teach them. Your goal is to raise them and teach them what is and is not okay. So, sure, while they are with you, beating them may achieve that. However, once they leave home, many things will be wrong with them. Especially if they have never been told why they are being punished. I think if you ever have to raise a child by fear, you’re doing it wrong. That’s how you get your children to hate you. In my opinion (no experience), it’s better to actually teach them and tell them why what they did/may do is wrong. And if they still do it, sure, punish them. And, no, I don’t mean beat them. That should be only for extreme reasons. Instead, especially these days, try taking their phone away or half their time allowed at the computer. And for god’s sake, don’t ever let your kid leave the house without a phone once they have one. That may save them one day. My point is, don’t abuse your children, instead discipline them. Use punishments that make sense and don’t exaggerate. Like, punishing a child for a single bad grade will do them no good in life. And finally, physical punishment doesn’t equal a well behaved child. Hell, no punishment will equal that. I was punished maybe once or twice from any time I can remember in my life, and even that wasn’t anything severe. Yet, I never was a problem kid. No parents at home, raised by my grandmother. Still, no issues. Why? Because I was shown early on what is and is not right and why. All in all, be a parent. Act like one. Show your kid love, keep them happy. But when you have to, be firm and do it in a smart way.

  • I have watched this a thousand times and I laugh every time. I had 7 brothers in a tiny three bedroom house. There was the boy’s room, my parents room and grama’s room. I was the one who rotated. I can remember hanging upside down from the closet door while my brothers threw giant sewing needles at me and hearing my brothers tell my mom “You said to play with her!” And my dad taught us to be very aware of each other’s behavior when he instituted his program of ” I can’t be sure who did it. All of you line up beside the bed! I’ll get the right one for sure.

  • What do you do when you take a toy away from a 6 year old boy and he is literally going biserk? He will yell, kick, try to hit, throw items all around. I try and say calmly, ” i understand you are disappointed, but you made the decision and you did not to listen.” He eventually calmed down and i try to make up amd express how i have to take toya and privileges away because as a mother it’s my duty to raise him. We kiterally went to bed and he still would not hug my goodnight.�� I don’t k ow what I can do to help him with his emotipns. Every time i try and talk later about how we could avoid this probkems he holds his ears and says, “I’m not listening. ” Please help, I feel like a struggling, failing momma…

  • Omg… Can’t believe this guy is being serious. It is not black and white ; either ‘discipline’ or be ‘permissive’. Children are not animals that need obedience training. His information and theories are so outdated. I highly recommend anyone listing to this to buy the books by Alfie Kohn ; who has compiled actual research on the subject of ‘discipline’. Start with ‘Unconditional Parenting’ and ‘Punishment by Rewards ‘. Read them, then come back for comments. I by the way have 2 children and have been teaching children ages 49 for the last 18 years.

  • Hi Dr Peterson. Yes I think you are right that your chapter about how to raise children is controversial.
    I saw this video on YouTube discussing discipline and how parental trauma is unconsciously passed on to their children.
    And how it results in the children’s misbehavior.
    Here is the link: https://youtu.be/GtwP6AbbAUc
    I wonder if you would comment on this idea. Thank you.

  • Watching this, I couldn’t help thinking of this kid I saw at where I worked (broadly, a “hospitality venue”).

    We’d been finding the remnants of a “Drumstick” (prepackaged ice cream cone) on the carpet after a certain weekly event. Like every goddamn week. Always the same flavour. Soaks into the carpet overnight. Not good. One week, I get that night shift. And you better believe I’m looking out for any kid who buys a choc-mint Drumstick.

    Sure enough, I see a kid suck the ice cream out of one of those suckers and just drop the remains on the floor. I walk over, pick it up and ask him, “What would happen if you did that at home?”

    Never. Happened. Again.

    That’s all it took. Someone pointing out that the rules that applied at home, also applied in this other place.

  • shit this insight is so fucking brilliantly described “u know i love my child i would never do anything to hurt them… ur so asleep if u think that… u have to think i´m way bigger than this child and im way meaner and im way trickier and im way more unpredictable”

  • My girlfriend has a 6 year old girl and listening to JP has helped me so much in finding my feet as a parent figure in her life and brought us closer as a result.

  • Born in 1971 and mom and dad would slap the shit outta me. I am glad they did I turned out pretty good. I am mentally and physically strong. Millennial men not so much

  • My pop was a hard motherfucker when my mother got pregnant he went to prison for 10 years for something stupid, got out then made less than my mother who’s was a an RN then end up working for the union and end up making over 100 grand a year, he is a 5,9 motherfucking silverback gorilla doesn’t even speak full sentences, when he got out he said its yes sir and yes mam from now on, he was very hard on me I never slept in a weekend till I got to college, he was a hitter, he explains it tho, if you fuck up you are going to get your ass beat son simple as that, it’s not abuse, abuse is when I beat your ass for no reason, so at a young age I knew I wasn’t getting abused I already knew the definition of discipline, I use to hate his ass for being hard of me but now I’m on my own my mental toughness is far greater than men in my age group, pretty much that kind of discipline I went through a looked at as abuse but honestly I grateful because my dad wasn’t a pussy and now I’m not a pussy I take things on, he honestly molded me into me into a young man and taught me not to be a bitch, so in reality all depends on how your parents are and how they explain it to you, even when the cops came to my school asked ppl if there parents hit them I told the police that my father disciplined me when I’m bad and it’s as simple as that, they tried to make it so other kind of bull hit but they where ok lol. “ if love got the job done all our parents would have bread high performers” Dan Pena/ tough love works motherfuckers, stay hard

  • As parents my wife and I never spanked our children, we were always a united front in disipline and punishment our children were never able to play one parent against to other.

  • Best lesson I learned from my father: discipline includes the why why was the discipline and punishment administered. After discipline is given talk with the child about why they were punished. Fosters understanding, reinforcement of expectations, and communication.

  • Your child can also accomplish more than you. Can do things you can’t do, and that’ll hurt you, you’ll want to take out that pain you feel on your child as a course, of revenge, perhaps even take the ability your child has away from them since you’ve identified it as a source of pain in your life from your emotional perspective.

  • Interesting conversation gentlemen. I believe my Father spanked me twice in my life; he employed psy war as a far more effective method. It would be considered child abuse today probably, but I distinctly remember when he told me, “Boy, I killed kids younger than you in Viet Nam.” A defining macho contest between a 14 year old and a Father which he won handily. I see Dad every day and love that man with all my heart. Discipline matters.

  • Here in UK i see parents not showing authority over their kids, they just speak to them softly even when they do the most dangerous things…. I have been disciplined also with force, yet i have never been aggressive towards people, never had a fight, and I love my parents. My father says: a slap at the right time is more effective than a thousand words. Damn true

  • Man this is hard with autistic children but it works. Tired of people using their special needs as a crutch for their kids. They need it because its going to be hard out there.

  • I have always wondered what my mom thought about my behavior, because at home yeah I was energetic l, jumping on the sofas, rude to my mom but never physically I know better than to hit my parents thank goodness but I was argumentative however in oublic or at someone else’s home I was quiet, patient, “A Good Child” I dont know if I unconsciously understood the social hierarchy as Dr. Peterson states but im sure by accident I behaved good because I was bored. Thats my.50cents

  • How do I take extreme ownership for a father that doesn’t have the guts to discipline my 12 year old brother and just leaves us when he’s not happy

  • It is with great sorrow that I must post that Dr. Zeff has passed. This will not affect the posting of his work by me. But it is a great loss. RIP, Ted.

  • I’ve searched but I can’t find a video of what a Jocko mindset would be like in a kids court battle, I’d love to hear his opinion.

  • My little sister and I did the same thing after watching Mary Poppins. We had a 5 foot stone wall around our patio, and we tried jumping off of that with umbrellas. I wonder how many kids tried that? This guy is so funny and so accurate about the way kids act.

  • have taught kids who are easy to dislike / hard to like, w them you have to do your best to see past it, usually there’s a reason for kids to be fucked up and it’s about the adults around them 99% of the time, after seeing how asians & mexicans raise their kids i’d say that USA & canada kids are fucked, so spoiled & selfish by comparison, so rude & entitled & warped, so steeped in violence & sex all the time, not all but enough that it makes society like that when it’s enough people, that’s how culture is really created,

  • The Bible way is the best we. Proverbs says if you love your children you will discipline your children. Don’t abuse them but make them know that doing wrong is really wrong and in adulthood if you don’t obey the law thenyoull Co to jail.

  • Dr. Peterson is very good at giving advice to people who do not have mental disorders and do not have children with mental disorders. Try this crap with a child who has Borderline Personality Disorder and see how limited his advice is.

  • Millions have already let down their children.
    Dear, President Donald J. Trump
    At this point I just want to disappear. In cultures where circumcision is thought of as a stigma autism occurs in boys and girls at an equal rate. In cultures where genital mutilation is legal to perform on boys but has been illegal for 23 fkn years on girls autism occurs in boys at a rate 5 times more than it occurs in girls. The DSM is rigged so that one event of trauma is not criteria to diagnose Dissociative Identity Disorder. Even though boys who have suffered genital mutilation lay in their cribs for weeks afterward reliving the extreme trauma of having a minimum of 20,000 of the most sensitive nerves in the human body severed and nothing to alleviate the pain. Do you really need to remember this kind of extreme trauma to be affected by it? The majority of circumcisions performed are done so without proper anestia or no anestia at all. Gee guess how many women have a degree in social sciences? 1 in less than 3. Guess what is the greatest crisis our country is facing? A mental health and drug crisis. Drug use is a symptom of DID and PTSD. Most symptoms of DID and PTSD are treated with cognitive therapy. Schizophrenia is treated with intense chemical labotimizing drugs and intense therapy. Guess who falsifies their data or atleast is misguided in researching data on schizophrenia being linked to a genetic causes? The same research facilities that would lose their funding and jobs without falsified or incorrect data. Guess who uses this research to produce medications to treat misdiagnosed schizophrenia? Guess who has no research to validate the drugs work? 1 in less than 3 but what is happening is 100% trash. Dear President Trump when do I get a chance to be human?

    Thank You President Donald J. Trump

  • You dam sure think you so learned and imagi you learned to I see but try really being learned or even Americans one time in your life.

  • If children and women know that if A happens then B happens, then you will never have to deliver B. They are playing on your guilt. You feeling guilty means they win.

  • have taught kids in 6 countries, kindergarten-high school, i learned that: kids the same everywhere, it’s easy for parents to fuck their kids up, kids need things to be laid out honestly, kids need responsibility balanced w freedom, kids can be trusted unless you have reason not to, don’t handle total freedom well & are immature by definition, don’t respect adults they can walk over, kids need boundaries to grow up healthy, not a wild west cornucopia of freedom w/o responsibility or consequences, can handle tough love better than you think,

  • Yeah, no shit discipline your kids. If this is revolutionary to you, then you probably have way bigger problems that you aren’t aware of.

  • So the tip from this video was to not be controlling to our kids…
    But what if my child is so defiant and has adhd?
    For example, at the mall, my son wanted to buy him something. I told him no because he kept interrupting the class and wasn’t listening to the teacher at all.

    He then proceeded to say, “eww; what’s the food you are ordering. That looks disgusting. I’m going to puke and I’m going to die if I eat that”. That was infront of the owner. I told him that it wasn’t nice how he was being rude.
    He then said. If you won’t buy me the thing I want, then I’ll go and get it myself. He then started to walk away from us.
    I told him that it wasn’t safe for him to be walking around the mall by himself.

    What would you have done in this situation? I think in some circumstances, control is fine. Especially if it has to do with their safety.

    I really want to help my son but it’s still a huge tug-of-war with him.

  • I’m a father and have been a teacher of young kids. What Jordan said about infinite creativity is spot on: firstly, creativity without bounds is not creative, it’s chaotic, it’s cancer. Secondly, a child who has been taught to always have the right answer and not make mistakes is utterly terrified of limitlessness. They will sit there and feel like dirt because they can’t perform what is required, and they’ll be immobilized by the void in front of them. In order to serve the most kids in the best way possible, you must impose a boundary on their creativity.

    Some practical ways of doing this: setting a location boundary around their play area, with a consequential reason they cannot go outside of it (mom’s garden is out of bounds, imagine how she’d feel if…). When you give them an artistic assignment, allow them to choose only 5 colours, or perhaps they can only use 5 different geometric shapes to construct their image. If you set them a writing task, supply them with the “who” or the “where & when” to use in their composition. By locking in these restrictions, it allows them to take creative risks in other areas of their play, and teaches them to begin to solve problems using only the tools they have on hand, instead of getting sidetracked by shiny possibilities that never pan out.

    Hope this helps!

  • Oh this is a comedy but I would not like a new world wimpy dad, wimpy dads raise wimpy children. Give me a man to raise me, one you had to sometimes fear they were tough and raised us to be tough, to be men. The only men nowadays are in the old folks’ home.

  • what if I’ve done all 5 types (given the situation)??? I have a 7yr old, 4 &5 year old. As a single mother its a such a big CHALLENGE… ��

  • The “evolution” of child rearing in 2019, is TREMENDOUSLY disturbing. Glad a discussion on this subject is being addressed. I happen to ADORE children but their PARENTS are making them almost UNBEARABLE (in 2019). One important thing that “parents” tend to forget? Those cute little baby grows UP! We’re in the age of rebellion courtesy of “parents” raising the next generations. May God have mercy.

  • True Talent. my daughter and I have seen this about 5 times. We laugh out loud each time. The jokes, the delivery is outstanding. Class act. Deserves to be known all over the world. Thank you Mr Klett for the belly laughs.

  • I’ve watched this several times and laugh just as hard as I did the first time. My family wasn’t as big, but with our extended family it was like having all them as brothers and sisters. When we got together it was pandemonium….

  • My first thoughts when I saw this was that Jocko is so much better than Peterson. Peterson is a scammer. He sells people bullshit. Jocko is a man of integrity, Peterson is not. Why is he around him? Then I saw something Jocko said about Peterson. It’s clear he knows who Peterson is, yet he talks on this podcast to get his ideas to a large audience. It’s not about Peterson, it’s about the message. Now I respect the man even more, didn’t know that was possible.

  • This is me, 100%. I still feel twelve and i love it, now as a highly sensitive adult. Thank you for this informative and interesting talk;-)

  • I can appreciate what you are saying. I think that the title is misleading. It seems to me that you were focusing on boys and not just the characteristics of highly sensitive children.

  • Some parents are just dumb. They will believe that giving them free range to do what they want works. Well…… give an addict a pound of cocaine and tell me if they will show restraint.

  • The amount of ads in this video is insane. Literally every 3-4 minutes. Not exaggerating. I love the content but this is so annoying

  • Relatedly, I see many people (mostly women, honestly) with really pathological relationships to animalsmainly their pets. I’m a musician by trade but have a morning job delivering prescriptions directly to customers’ homes. About half of the women who I deliver to have a dog that they simply cannotor will notcontrol with anything approaching discipline and respect for guests. I see this as an expression of exactly what Dr. Peterson is talking about here. The inherent compassion and agreeableness women often embody can become pathological in its capacity to keep the child/animal/boyfriend/husband/etc., in relation to them in a particular way. I think the intent here is to protract the mother/child relationship indefinitely. In other words, this is the devouring mother archetype rearing its ugly head…

  • Don’t be cruel. Alway be firm. Always discipline your child reasonably. If you don’t, the world will. Remember that discipline from the world is cold and harsh. It comes with iron bars, records, or death.

  • I saw a lady tell her kid no to candy, the kid began crying and she negotiated if he would behave he would get a reward, but it was his only chance to behave if he wanted the candy. The kid should have been spanked for the fit, given no candy ever, or anything with sugar in it period, and made to do chores for half a day with a serious ass whooping for letting up at all. I have literally been living on my own with a job since I was younger than this ladies pathetic excuse for a child, who will unfortunately be the future of this country.

  • Dad use to threaten to take me to the Walmart greeter to whoop my butt. Something about a stranger beating me frightened me much more than a spanking from dad. To this day I avoid greeters anywhere.

  • He’s right. There’s a lot of “children” of adult age that never got the discipline they should have been taught. Was on a plane with a screaming crying baby. Yes, it was not an enjoyable experience. But it was a baby. I could put that in perspective and didn’t feel irritated over it and felt bad for the mother who had to hear the whines of this other big fully grown baby in the front loudly complaining. Worst part was I was across the aisle from this “baby” and she turned to me and said: “Isn’t that baby so damn annoying?!” I had enough of her and said: “A little bit.” She exclaimed with drama at once “A little bit?!” “Yes,” I said calmly and continued: “Just a little bit, especially compared to the giant whinny baby next to me.” The lady at first was very confused and actually glanced over at the passenger next to me, looking for another baby. Then in finally dawned on her who I was referencing. She shut up after that.

  • Do not have children, agree with some of the parenting principles for highly sensitive children, yet worry about the idea of isolating the sensitive child from engaging and interacting with other fellow humans in a normal manner(the idea of over protecting the child)does a child not grow in mind and personality through optimal adversity and dealing with the real world (which they will have to face at some stage, unless coddled throughout adulthood)? Unless the child has other personality traits such as autism, surely they will thrive either way in normal life, with proper/healthy supportive parenting.

    Main question: can this parenting style overemphasised also be counterproductive?

  • Thankyou Dr Zeff I really appreciate your coverage on this Topic.
    You explain and understand clearly The Highly Sensitive Child. I know this personally having experienced first hand being The Highly Sensitive Child.

  • I can’t stand people who say JBP over complicates simple ideas or doesn’t bring anything new to the table & we’re living in an ever increasing society who’s losing common sense along with the ability to think critically. We need lessons like this even if we already know just to at least verify were on the same page.

  • I think the being born into sin, likely applies to our genetic makeup being degraded by sin…which is quite physiological and real. of course children are full of potential and are beautiful miracles given to us by God. However, our genetic makeup has been unfortunately damaged directly by the actions and activities of our parents, grandparents and so on…. these possibly sinful choices do affect or physiological bodies and brains. I think your underlying message is wonderful and useful, and the patterns and habits we have learned need to be criticized and we for sure need to guide and teach our children in peaceful and loving ways. Even using Jesus’ life as example….he always took time for children and was loving and patient with them. As parents we need to aim to embody the fruits of the spirit. Recognizing our learned parenting habits is hard, changing them is not easy… I am wih you that it is worth it and we all need to see that we are the role models and need to parent with love and embody in ourselves what we want to see in,our children….and view life from their eyes and their developmental stage as well.

  • Jocko put a clip up of his interview where he doesn’t say a word the whole time. If that isn’t a sign of his ability to be humble in the face of wisdom, well, I don’t know what is. A sign of a man who’s looked inside and can be honest with what he finds.

  • Kids become monsters because society (and parents) are more interested in assimilating their children than trusting them and allowing them to grow. Interventionism culture I guess you could say. We all start out innocent, happy, courageous and full of joy. Then we get introduced/indoctrinated to this upside down, bullshit culture, and turn into miserable, cowardly, fearful, herd members that were forcibly taken from their individual nature.

  • Advice Jocko tell him never to drink and drive again..his display with Pinkerton was drousie..thank your team in advance..march on…forwards then upwords always…March forward!

  • I haven’t laughed so much in a long time. You know that belly laugh, where you can’t even breathe. I play his act at least once a week.

  • Oh geez I’m laughing so hard right from the get go! Yep. He’s telling it the way it really was for those of us who were actually disciplined when we were children. ������

  • Remember, you aren’t raising a child. They already know how to be that. You’re raising an adult. Make sure it’s an adult worth the name.

  • I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Jordan Peterson is one of the most brilliant, eloquent, and necessary voices of the last 100 years.
    Put aside your biases and Listen. To. This. Man. Every chance you get.

  • I love my children more than they understand. But im their parent not their friend and will not be for a couple decades atleast. I have 18 yrs of their lives to teach them about life. Some lessons i want them to learn the hardway before they turn 18. Why i get asked. because a lesson painfully learned is never forgotten. We always remember pain. An i can protect them for the most part untill they turn 18. After that i cant help with lifes lesson and consequences get much more severe.
    My dad worked in a factory 120 a week sometimes 6 or 7 months without a day off. An we farmed 200 acres 60 plus head cattle. An he was never there for anything it seemed. I joined the military at 24 for a life style change. It was there i learn he was always there no matter where or what i was doing. Always just in the back of my mind gjiding me. My first call home in basic training i told him i loved him for the first time i could remember in 20 yrs and thanked him for cracking me on the ass. Told him he should have did it 10 timez as much. A thank him because i wasnt a shithead. I only hope i can be half the parent he was
    . H-minus

  • By no means am I am perfect parent and I have made alot of mistakes…but now that my kids are over 4 and interact with adults and other kids and I see how polite they are, and how they share and even when they ger angry and stand their ground…I feel a small sense of pride that I steered them in the right direction and I did it by not taking their temoer tantrums and rude behaviour(85% of the time). If they were bad in public or at home or anywhere they were immediately told and punished. Sometimes in dire situations i have had to bribe them with no entertainment devices or no chocolate etc. That might be wrong but at the end of the day “being bad and not listening = not good things”. It worked to a point. I am pleased with my kids attitudes.

  • Oh. My. Gawd. I am dying. I am one of (only) five, 2 brothers, 2 sisters. We experienced some of the same things. My daddy, the wisest of all daddies in the land, would sometimes have me (the “intelligent” one) go to my room with the strict order to “bend over the bend and wait for me,” Sometimes the length of time of the wait was dependent on the infraction. If he came right behind behind me, uh oh, I messed up good, was mad and wanted to get it over with. Now, my precious father had a sense of humor, too okay? A couple of the last times he felt like he could whip me he’d send me to bend over and wait. And I’d wait. And wait. And wait. And wait. Once for over a half an hour, for a minor infraction I thought, so finally, I’m like 11 y/o boy, I got stuff to do, I go to him. “Daddy, I’m still waiting.” Newspaper rattles slightly in an irritated manner. “Uh-huh. I know.” “But, daddy…” He drops the paper, looks at me with ever so slight a smile and lovingly says, “Do you know what you did? And why it was wrong?” “Yes sir…?” “Get out of here then.” The punishment that day was the wait and anticipation. Lol.

  • When my kids least expect it, I just randomly kick them in the chest or the back and knock them to the ground. They have no idea why it happened. But they know who not the fuck with in the household.��

  • I taught HS 2 years.

    I saw children that had little to no discipline or the father was not there.

    Those children were generally poorer students who often ridiculed the teacher.

    It’s been several years and I can only imagine what some of those kids (now young adults) have had to endure due to the way they were raised.

    Acting a fool in the classroom does not translate well into the adult world.

  • I rarely comment to respond to criticism but stating that single parenting is the root of a lot of problems is ludicrous. A single PARENT (regardless of gender) can instill discipline and respect just as much as could a dual parent home where only one is disciplining. I know many young men who had one parent and grew up to be GREAT MEN who actually respect women more for it. That comment below was pretty fucking disgusting and heartless.

  • my parents got better and better with discipline the more kids they had.

    i was rarely spanked as a kid (4th child) but my eldest was smacked way too much. it takes practice to raise a child well!

  • Omg..plzz help personally I have frustration in me and so mch impulse mood and he is so so so sensitive on top of all..i can’t handle my 2.3yrs old in any good or bad times..i yell, hit and scream at him for whining and crying for every li’l things you tel him to do.and always on his feelings..what to do here firstly first!??.plz help and fix me first.

  • First, I verbalize my disapproval and the conduct I expect. It’s important that they understand what the correct conduct is instead of just be criticized for what they do wrong.
    Second stage is to punish by taking away time or privileges
    If none of that works, I go to third stage, and a spanking is required to couple an activity with an unpleasant consequence. Spanking is not bad but it depends on the reason and intent. Never skip stages 1 and 2. Never spank because you are angry or frustrated.

    If physical discipline is bad, then please close all jails and take away all physical force from police because it’s pointless.

  • Wife is back in college and very sensitive to inner fears that she doesn’t have the time for our son she wishes she had. Tonight she has to study and he tells her that she never plays with him (he was just being a manipulative 4year oldshe gives him plenty of attention overall). Well, he hit a specific nerve and she got vindictive and took it out on him in a defensive backlash.

    I pulled this video up immediately, helped me convey why that behavior of taking revenge based on personal insecurities can not continue.

    Made all the sense in the world to her. I’ve learned from this 5.5minute clip myself in similar situations.

  • Oh my, I have done all of these things….my default is “explainer”, then my secondary reaction is usually to try and negotiate, after that I typically waver on my limits “giver” and then sometimes end up being a yeller….which I them feel terrible about. Thank you for this video. The first step is identifying the problem right?
