Proper Discipline …. According to Supernanny
It’s been a while since I’ve watched Supernanny on television, but my mom recently recorded a really good episode. These 2 parents had 4 little boys, one being a newborn. It was chaos much of the time and Supernanny was coming into help these parents use better parenting skills with their children.
Supernanny noticed that the parents weren’t disciplining their children in the most effective manner. The dad had an opportunity to use Supernanny’s advice when the kids started hitting the computer. So, here are some tips for “Proper Discipline,” according to Supernanny:
(1) Casually ask child to stop behavior.
(2) Give a warning in a firm voice.
(3) Place in Time Out 1 minute per year of child’s age.
(4) Explain why child is in Time Out. Make eye contact and get down to child’s level.
(5) If child gets out of Time Out, place the child back in Time Out without speaking and reset the timer.
(6) When time-out is finished, explain to the child why he or she was in Time Out.
(7) Have child apologize.
(8) Give child hugs and kisses.
I love this show and hope this helps someone out there. I know it was a helpful reminder for myself. 🙂
