In brief: Discipline
Until a child is about 3 years of age his thinking brain is not developed enough to use reason such as with holding privileges as a technique.
Discipline until then need to be based on rewarding good behavior and seen as an opportunity to teach. Never use withholding your emotional connection with your child as a disciplinary technique but do set limits and be consistent.

Agree completely with Dr. Mease. With regard to limits, your child both needs and wants them. Strive to be their parent first. Love, respect and friendship are the personal rewards bestowed for a job well done!

In brief: 3 years
For most children, time-outs are the best form of discipline from 15 months to 3 years old.
Redirection can also be used for younger children. After the third birthday, children can start to learn other consequences for their actions, including limiting privileges.
