In another current post, OP asks what people would do in a situation where a 5 year old was misbehaving and spitting, hitting etc in public.
Many posters go on to say things along the lines of 'my children would never act like that' which is great, but my question is, how do you bring your children up to have good behaviour? My parents way of discipline was to give us the silent treatment to make us feel extremely guilty for doing the wrong thing and I don't want to do the same.
So..... When do you start discipline and how do you ensure your kids would never act that way (you know the way the kids on Super Nanny act) what did you do?
Are there any good books on this?
As they say, prevention is better than cure!?
