important to continually learn and practice good parenting techniques, using
different discipline strategies as your child grows and develops. All
discipline techniques must be age-appropriate so that the child understands the
difference between appropriate and inappropriate behavior. Babies younger than age 18
months cannot understand these concepts.
Contact your child's doctor if:
You want more information about how to discipline your child.
You are having trouble handling your reaction to your child's behavior.
Your child's behavior is causing a lot of family stress or other problems.
You can get other parenting tips from your child's doctor, a local hospital, and national parenting groups.
