I think it’s nasty to discipline my child!

Really??… Really..

I think it’s nasty that you don’t.

This is a post written by a fellow Imperfect Mum.  Who has 3 children, one with Aspergers one with ADHD.

I find it really alarming the amount of parents who struggle with their child being completely out of hand.

It’s your first child and you love them so much that you can’t bring yourself to “be nasty” to them and that’s awesome.

However,  it’s not so awesome when they start school and your child is the one kid in class who isn’t invited to birthday parties, sleepovers or play-dates because they are so unruly.

Parents talk and they will warn each other “don’t invite *insert name*  “he doesn’t listen and disrupts everyone” these parents aren’t being horrible or thoughtless, they simply have enough on their plates looking after the other children in their care and can’t be bothered having that one kid who doesn’t listen.

How awesome will it be when they big enough to do some real damage when they hit you, or when your house is the one that’s avoided because there’s a kid running around yelling, screaming and in general “being a brat”.

Do yourself (and most of all them) a favour by disciplining  them by using the time out chair/naughty corner, do something that teaches your child consequences.

Those families who are featured on Supernanny are there because there was no discipline, consequences or consistency.

In all aspects of a person’s life outside of the home there are choices and consequences, starting with daycare, then school, then uni, a job and even in relationships. CONSEQUENCE the choice, DISCIPLINE the action and GUIDE the decision.
