    I don't discipline. I guide and educate.

    Once my kids start disobeying they will be warned and then taken to their rooms to discuss their behaviour.

    My kids get a chance to stop the naughty behaviour - i.e. I say I'll count to 3, normally it's stopped before I count so the consequence rarely comes, but if it needs to it is a corner time out. If they hurt each other they must apologies, if my dd hurts an wont apologies or stop it is an immediate bedroom. If she screams and carries on (sometimes around dinner or because I say no more
    Tv I tell her to do it in her room because we don't need to listen to her disrupting us). That's about it. The rest is guidance - don't jump on couch, don't eat anywhere but kitchen or outside, clean up clothes/toys, etc that kind of stuff for me doesn't need discipline just reminders and guidance.

    I made a decision to be more aware of when I'm raising my voice to DS (29 months). If he's doing something that puts him in immediate danger, I.e. running away near a road, touching something sharp / hot, then I will raise my voice. If not, I try to stay calm and try to explain things to him.

    If he does something I don't want him to do, or isn't listening to me when I ask him to do / not do something, I try to get down to his eye level, explain what I want him to do and why (e.g. don't sit on the dogs head, it hurts him), and tell him that if he doesn't listen to what I've asked then he will either go on the naughty step or have whatever he's playing with taken away.

    We've only been doing this for a month or so, and I think it's working, but am always keen to find out more about better ways. I've heard some people disagree with the naughty step/spot method but I've not looked into what the issues are.

    What is 123 magic?
