One of the parenting concerns and responsibility is to teach kids discipline. Is home appear a cluttered place or like a war zone when the children are out of control? With a little planning and a discipline structure, parents can work together as a team to bring peace to the home. Healthy or effective discipline don’t mean at all limiting your child freedom to express himself/herself and to be creative.
Children begin often to learn about good and bad after their first 3 or 4 years. There are usually common values between parents that are coming from their own individual baggage from childhood.

Therefore, some cooperation may have to be made in order to present a coherent parenting style.

Use past incidents and experience of other successful parents to find solutions of problem behaviors of kids. Try to take in consideration the child age and the balancing between his zone of freedom, independence and your limits.
