Parenting and discipline

Recently, the concept of “discipline” regarding parenting has acquired a negative color: for many people it is associated with authoritarian parenting and punishment. The methods of upbringing vary in different families depending on religion, culture, traditions and values, as well as on the characteristics of the character of the child. And such differences can be significant.

What does the concept of discipline mean?

In simple words, discipline is a way to teach a child to distinguish good from bad, to understand boundaries and rules. Discipline involves reinforcing good behavior and, conversely, punishing or negative consequences for bad.

However, what we understand as punishment does not always have a negative meaning. Today, parenting punishments are usually milder than before. Punishment can manifest itself in showing the child the negative consequences of his behavior, depriving him of any privileges or showing his disapproval in any other way. Continue reading

We instill ecological habits in the child

A well-known proverb says: “He who knows the price of money, that he can’t escape the need.” A lean attitude not only to money, but also to food, water, things, time and any other resources is a very important skill. Parents should teach their children to save money from an early age. This is important not only for maintaining the family budget, but also for the child to learn the correct model of resource consumption and develop ecological thinking.

However, unfortunately, modern parents do not very often set themselves such tasks in raising children. Moreover, overconsumption today is becoming quite common in modern families.

To teach a child to take care of food, money, time, etc. is not as difficult as it might seem at first glance. No special effort is required for this. Start by showing your child a good example. Change your own daily habits, become more thrifty yourself. Thus, you will be able to form environmentally friendly habits in your child.
