I'm a parent of a 5-year-old daughter who is struggling to understand the concept of responsibility. I've noticed that she often forgets to complete her chores, doesn't take care of her belongings and doesn't follow through with what she says she will do. I want to teach her the importance of being responsible and I believe that discipline can play an important role in this process.
However, I'm not quite sure how to effectively use discipline to teach my daughter about responsibility without being too harsh or authoritarian. I don't want her to feel like she's being punished all the time, but I also want her to understand that there are consequences to her actions or inactions.
Any tips or advice on how I can approach this situation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
