Speaking of positive discipline, we use the concept of teaching or guiding. Routine is considered as an approach of discipline. If children have routines they don't need to feel to act out. By giving children routine that is the maintaining balance with them. It also gives the children opportunity to establish a sense of independence even as a baby. That way the child knows what to expect: dinner, bath, read, bedtime and let them know that it is good for them. It is very important for the kids to tell what to do rather than what not to do. Always use the positive rather than the negative. Use positive vocabulary. Meeting one's child needs means giving children what they need, not necessarily what they want. That is the goal with positive discipline.
