Discipline IQ

Toddler tantrums make most of us cringe, and bedtime for children of all ages is often a difficult time for parents.

Even when parents do everything they can to prevent misbehavior before it happens, kids still end up acting out.

There may not be one right way to raise kids, but experts say there is a better way that can mean fewer fights.

We investigate some of the most challenging situations and get you help with the most common discipline mistakes.

Do you have the endless supply of understanding and energy to help children develop self-control?

Coming Monday, all day long, you will have the chance to take the DISCIPLINE IQ TEST and learn better ways to teach your toddlers.

The correct answer according to WebMD is to: Take care of the hurt child.

The expert WebMD cited had this to say on the situation: First, separate the kids, take the toy, and comfort the hurt child. Stop the hitting and deal with it right away so you don’t reward the child with what he wants. Say, “No hit. Hitting hurts,” so he learns to think of others’ feelings.

Frequent hitting or biting might be a sign of other problems — sadness, anger, seeing violence in person or on TV, or being abused. If it keeps happening, talk to your child’s doctor.
