7. Ignoring

Some behaviors just need ignoring. This probably works better on younger children than it does older ones. When my daughter was a toddler she tried to talk to me in a whinny voice. There is nothing more annoying to me than a whine. For a week whenever she would whine, โ€œMommy, I canโ€™t do this,โ€ I pretended not to hear her.

When she stopped whining I would say, โ€œOh where you trying to talk to me, because my ears donโ€™t work when you whine.โ€ This effective discipline technique also worked for screaming and tantrums.

No one said being a parent was going to be easy. Luckily we are all in this together and can share effective discipline techniques with one another. What are some unique ways you have disciplined your child or corrected their behavior?
