I like positive parenting, reinforcing good behaviour, rewarding and praising good behaviour, redirection, ignoring some negative behaviours, setting clear boundaries, using consequences and sticking to them. I believe our children's behaviour is impacted a lot by our own responses, if we nag and yell our children will rarely respond in a positive way. Have fun with your children, teach them how to behave positively.

Depending on the age I either give time outs or conditions. The main thing I'd to have a set of rules that everyone has to follow not just stepchildren or biological children. When they are all on the same page it makes it easier for everyone. I talk to my girls and explain to them what action they are doing that is not allowed. If they do not stop they get a time out (one minute per age). When the time out is over I talk to them again and have them say sorry and give a hug and kiss.

I only have one child. I don't know if I would call what I do discipline or not. We have order in the house. If she does something she's not supposed to, we tell her "Please stop" and redirect her. If she's yelling/loud, we ignore her until she requests/vocalizes nicely. What are your specific concerns?
