A further negative way of disciplining is verbally ridiculing your child, and this can affect their self-esteem for years to come. Lastly, the worst of all is to discipline your child by hitting them. Children that are hit can suffer negative effects for life. As you can see, there are quite a few negative ways to discipline children."
Proper Discipline Adds Self-Esteem How to dicipline but also make your child feel like they are someone. "The importance of seeing and accepting your child as he/she is can't be stressed enough in order to foster their self-esteem. There are other factors that contribute to self-esteem in children. The most important of these factors
is discipline and setting limits for your kids. Children who are not disciplined, who do not have limits, can not grow up with high self-esteem. They tend to be
more dependent and feel that they have less control over their world. Kids, just like adults, are more confident when they feel they have control."
