10 Jul Instill discipline in your child with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Most adults find it hard to practice discipline so how can we inculcate that in our children. Children that start practising self discipline in early childhood it is highly possible that they will continue that in a latter period of their life.
These are some basic rules that you can keep in your life and by following these rules you can easily bring a high degree of self-discipline in your kids.
1 Set a schedule with structure:
Sit down with your child and help make a schedule for every day that can be used by your child regularly. When a person knows what they are supposed to do, they are less likely to waste time doing other activities that are mundane and have no productivity at all. For example, you should teach your kids certain things that can inculcate discipline such as teaching them to make their bed first thing in the morning. A minor task but will grant immense satisfaction of doing the first task of the day. Keep the routine simple and easy to follow on a regular daily basis.
2 Consequences for laziness
Make good and healthy choices because these are the things that help them to understand the rules and what consequences they can suffer if they will not adhere to them. Give them a simple explanation about why some choices are important, as this can help the child to properly understand the choices they will make.
3 Give praises based on results
The natural way of results and experiences in life will teach great lessons and so will the bad experiences from the bad decisions. The bottom line is to own your acts and takes responsibility for your own decisions. Point out they had a choice and made the wrong one which isn’t pleasing to them now. There is a specific period of time when the children need logical results for their decisions and who can know this better than an parent. Self-discipline will not come alone by just motivation rather clear knowledge of the mission or the end result will teach him better.
4 Constant practice
Extreme self-discipline is a long process which takes many years to be in perfection and to be completed and refined. You can not use the same tactics on children that are used on the adults as age-appropriate disciplinary policies. You shouldn’t be expecting your child to suddenly remember their entire routine like you do. Provide reminders to your child, when it’s necessary so that they can keep track of their tasks. Ultimately, they will need less reminders because they will be capable to improve their own discipline.
5 Appreciate and Over react
Whenever your child displays some good degree of self-discipline provides positive attention and good results then appreciate his efforts like it is done. Also, you are required to portray the best behaviour if you want to see your child behaving in the same manner. Sometimes the good behaviour of your children is ignored, and by giving appreciation to your children for a better choice, you are just increasing the chances that they will repeat their behaviour in future too. When they do something above and beyond what is asked of them act like they just won the lottery.
6 Be a positive Role Model
Children learn a great deal through adults in their life. If your child sees you opting for things out of your routine which aren’t productive or which you aren’t supposed to do then he will replicate your manners and will use your habits.
Don’t forget they are still a child and learning continuously in life about new things.
