  • I'm Dr. Ari Brown. I'm here to help you figure out when to start disciplining your child

  • and how to approach discipline for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Discipline is about

  • teaching your child, so you have to be realistic about what he understands. For example, when

  • you say "be nice", your 15-month-old may have no idea what nice means. You have to show

  • what you mean by be nice, like showing her how to pet the cat instead of grabbing its

  • tail. And setting up rules and limits are different depending on the age of the child.

  • One and 2-year olds need physical limits like putting the potted plant out of reach. But

  • 3 and 4-year olds, a verbal limit should be enough, such as "Don't touch that plant, honey."

  • So, when is the right time to start disciplining your child? Kids can respond to discipline

  • as young as 9 months of age. That's about the time they start testing the waters to

  • see if they can get away with things that you've already said no to. You know the drill:

  • your child cruises over to the dog food bowl to grab a snack, but before he does, he looks

  • at you with a little grin on his face. That's because you have already told him 10 times

  • that that's not okay. If your child is smart enough to figure out this human behavior,

  • he is more than ready to be disciplined for it. For babies, the best response is redirection.

  • Just removing the temptation, like taking away the dog food, will reduce the number

  • of times you need to say no. It's also pretty easy to redirect the baby to another more

  • appropriate activity like banging on some pots and pans with a wooden spoon. For toddlers,

  • give choices and teach consequences. Toddlers are all about control, so giving them a chance

  • to make decisions makes for fewer power struggles and discipline moments. Of course, you only

  • want to give two choices, both of which are things you want them to do anyway, and if

  • a toddler misbehaves, make his time fit the crime. For instance, if your toddler enjoys

  • running away from you when he's outside, say, "You can't play outside if you run in the

  • street." Your child learns that his poor choice has consequences. For preschoolers, catch

  • them being good and ignore undesirable behavior. Three and four-year olds aim to please and

  • they thrive on their parent's attention. So, noticing good behavior will minimize those

  • ugly attention-seeking behaviors. And when your preschooler starts calling you a poo

  • poo head or some other preschooler cursing, ignore it and she will quit. Yes, it's funny

  • the first time but if you respond to it, you'll hear it a hundred more times. Being a parent

  • of a 1 to 4-year-old can be a real challenge but you will be a pro when your child becomes

  • a teenager, and with teenagers in my own house, I can tell you, teenagers are much easier.

  • Keep your chin up.
