7 Parenting Consequences: for Children's Misbehavior

Logical Consequences Can Solve Problems

A LOGICAL CONSEQUENCE IS THE PENALTY you give your children for their misbehavior. It is logical because it makes sense. It fits the “crime.”

Here Are Some Illogical Consequences When Kids Sass:

1. Weed the garden.

2. Clean the garage.

3. Mow the grass.

These discipline solutions are illogical because they are not connected to sassing. Although you might like your garden weeded, your grass mowed, and your garage cleaned, none of these fit the misbehavior.  

Here’s the Discipline Problem:

How can you think of a logical consequence when you need it? Some corrections for misconduct are difficult to come up with on the spot. What can you do?

A Simple Discipline Solution:

Say, “I need some time to think of an appropriate solution. I’ll let you know later.” This is better than yelling and sounding out of control. Besides, if you scream, your child can blame you for hollering.

Instead, give yourself time to think and give your child time to reflect on what he’s done.

Here’s an Easy Discipline Consequence:

Tell your child to write down what she did wrong, why it was wrong, and what she should have done. When she’s done, ask her to apologize. This helps her think about her problem behavior, consider the right thing to do, and say, “I’m sorry.”
