This morning my son and I were going for a walk to the local park. Opening the front door we were greeted by a loud screeching noise – it was my neighbor yelling at her three boys who, from what bits I could understand (most of it was indecipherable apart from a long string of curse words!) had been pulling up plants from another neighbors garden. Unfortunately this is nothing new, we usually open our door to find her screaming yet evidently it doesn’t seem to do any good. The children misbehave on a daily basis and she reacts this way but if it worked then surely they would have started behaving themselves as soon as she yelled the first time which got me thinking, what are the best ways to discipline a child?
