In my experience as a parent, you can never think about discipline and your children enough. It’s difficult, winding road, and children are always growing-therefore their needs are always changing. In my opinion, no one is talking about discipline as effectively, and humorously, as Dr. John Medina. So I defer to his work for the article of the month. I am linking you to one of his articles on discipline. There are many links to his books, “Brain Rules” and “Brain Rules for Baby” on that page. I highly suggest that you read them both. They are enlightening and entertaining. And yes, I have recommended “Brain Rules for Baby” before, but it is so great, it bears repeating.
