Good discipline stems from childhood. It is the parents responsibility to ensure their child knows right from wrong. Not so? I mean common, we’re talking toddlers here. Lets imagine for a minute you had the cutest most adorable infant a mother could ask for, most adorable smile ever, sweet and lovable, wouldn’t you want them to develop to be the most well rounded, mannerly individual? This wasn’t case for everyone. Along my ventures I met a couple, with the most angelic looking little girl ever! Now at first glance she looked as angelic as Jojo, with a mischievous grin. She was the most perfect height a little girl could be. She was white right and she had the sweetest smile, and her teeth were all perfectly aligned and her clothes were well prim and proper, but there was one thing primarily wrong with this child, she had no manners and discipline! Now I’m a guy that can tolerate a good bit, alright, and an attention seeking, tantrum throwing child, occasionally, is not a problem, but you see when that tantrum throwing child is continuously misbehaving, thats when you know you are gonna be in alot of problems. That’s when I safely say you have failed in your parental duties. Common I’m sure many of you know what I am talking about. You guys know how annoying that can be at times, and at other times it can be not so bad actually. Well this time it was horrific! Let me tell you, she would cause massive interruptions, she would act up if she didn’t get the meal she required, she would even throw things at her parents. At this point i was utter perplexed and pissed off. Children do those things?, was my initial question, at a dinner?! That was poor discipline. My god, the child could not even have the decency to conduct herself and let us have a good meeting. What would you do? Would you just allow your child to be throwing things at you? All I could think was had her parents not neglected the child, she would not be getting on so. I immediately proceeded to question the parents about the child’s sudden behavior, and they responded with a hasty, I don’t know, with an unconcerned look about them, both at the same time as if it were rehearsed.
I have never in all my life experienced a dinner such like that ever in my life. I know I never behaved so badly in-front of my parents as a child, let me tell you. That sort of behavior, is repugnant behavior and it for one would not have been allowed at my house, in public or not, it did not matter! How hard is it to teach a child good discipline, really? It shouldn’t be that hard. I recently discovered thirteen simple ways of teaching your child effectively good discipline, and that couple did not use one way that night. After considerable deliberation, I came to the conclusion that probably the parents themselves, don’t know the meaning of good discipline or did not receive any discipline as a child. Thats why i took the liberty of looking it up. According to the Merriam Webster’s Learner’s Dictionary:
