How Do Hispanic Cultures Discipline Their Children
How do I discipline a child without yelling or punishing? Children often don't understand what we try to tell them...
Time out: When children get to about 3 years, use of timeouts can be effective - a non punitive approach. Prior to this age distraction or "positive timeouts" may be useful. Timeouts require a calm and consistent approach. If you would like brief training talk to your pediatrician or seek a child/family psychologist.

Love them: Young people are going to explore. Set an example in your own life. For me, "evil" is hating others without any real reason, treating others unfairly, demanding things for which you haven't worked, defining yourself in terms of owning worthless things. If you peers admire you for the life you live, your children will usually follow your example, though every young person makes some mistakes. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Time-out technique: Spanking stops undesireable behavior at that moment, but it doesn't teach children not to repeat the behavior.

Hyperactivity: Attention deficity disorder (not the hyperactive part) is almost unheard of before 6 or 7 years old. Not because it isn't there, but it is almost impossible to diagnose. We do see hyperactivity disorders in younger children from time to time, and generally giving them opportunity to exercise, making sure they get sleep, avoiding stimulants helps.

Setting no limits: Children need boundaries. When none are given, they become spoiled, angry, out of control, hating the world and everyone in it. Responding to every outburst with a calm, "no" and a reasonable punishment will reinforce there are limits/boundaries that are not to be crossed. They will learn not to do that. Calm patience and consistency is all you need. More about teaching the adult then the child. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
0-18 (or 21): I agree with the previous physician's comments. Typically pediatricians will see children up until age 18 or if they become emancipated minors as stated above. However, some pediatricians will see patients until age 21. Our practice has an adolescent office and we see some patients until age 21. At age 18, we treat our patients as adults and do not require parental consent for exams or testing. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
