I'm a mother of two children, a three-year-old boy and a five-year-old girl, and I'm having a really hard time disciplining them. I feel like sometimes I'm too strict and other times not strict enough, and I'm not sure how to strike a balance. But what really concerns me is that I want to discipline them in a way that takes into account their individual personality and temperament.
My son is very active and loves to explore, but he can also be quite impulsive and doesn't like being told what to do. My daughter, on the other hand, is more reserved and sensitive, and she responds better to praise and recognition. When I try to discipline them in the same way, it just doesn't seem to work.
I want to be able to understand their individual needs and personalities so that I can discipline them effectively without damaging their self-esteem or making them feel like they're not understood. Any advice or tips on how to do this would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance.
