I'm a parent of a 5-year-old child and I'm struggling to find an effective way to discipline him without resorting to physical punishment or threats. I don't want to harm my child or instill fear in him, but I also want him to learn that his actions have consequences.
Recently, he has been acting out at home and school, not listening to instructions, and throwing tantrums when he doesn't get his way. I've tried talking to him and explaining why his behavior is not acceptable, but he doesn't seem to understand or care.
I'm hoping to get some advice from other parents or experts on how to discipline my child in a way that is effective and respectful. I want to teach him how to make better choices and be responsible for his actions without resorting to physical punishment or threats.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
