“Discipline begins at home.” This quote was given out to a lot of PTA meetings in the past. It was directed to parents who have children with attitude problems. Apparently, a child’s attitude is a reflection of what he or she sees or experiences’ at home. Teachers state as well that school is the outlet of a child’s frustration at home. This frustration can manifest to bullying and lack of interest in school, which may lead to dropping out or even unexpected things kids can do now a days.
Well, no one is a perfect parent. Everyone has a unique way of disciplining their children. Some can be strict and others can be lenient. Some can be odd and unconventional. Some will just let things happen the way they think is right. There is no standard ways of bringing up your child. However, raising a good kid will help them to be successful in school and in their future lives. You can start molding their character during the toddler years.
