Re: Discipline?

The first real no comes when they test their chompers out on me. But they get some sort of discipline from day one. This is not to be confused with punishment. I'm talking about teaching!

I recommend Parenting by the Book by John Rosemond. The first 3 chapters are a drag, but the rest makes sense to me. He talks about discipline as being more than just punishment, how everything we teach our children should be based on our belief in Christ, and how simple it is to parent. He uses hyperbole a lot-especially when talking about what not to do.

7-8 months is when my babies start to "get" no. It's also the age where they want to throw food on the floor and I don't let them. They are welcome to experiment with toys, but food I don't do. It's the age when they fuss at me and I tell them, "Mommy's coming. I'll be there right after I XYZ."
