Different Types of Discipline

What type of disciplinary action are you taking your children? Is there any right way to rule them? Is spanking good or not? What is the basis when we say strict or not? These are the questions that bothered me. It's like I am in the middle where I don't know where to stand. Honestly, many times I felt down and failed in this area of my life as a mother of 3 children. I feel guilty most of the time which is I think that other mothers are feeling also.

Sometimes, I ask my parents how they raised us that made us good children and not a burden to the community. I am presently struggling with my eldest now. She'll be turning eight this August and she is already answering me back and will not listen to me. Now, I understand what our mother was feeling when we didn't listen to her before. I already tried to talk to her in a very calm voice but failed. I also tried to spank her every time she commits mistake and won't listen, but I guess I make her stubborn. That moment when you shouted already, but still she won't listen? I feel like bursting! They said that I should treat her in different ways. I tried but still didn't get better.


I know for sure that It's all our fault because all our attention, love and care is only to her. We tried to give her everything she likes like a toy, dress and many more. But today that she already has two younger siblings, she started to feel jealous and bitter. Life is so much different now that we are growing in number. She doesn’t understand everything. There are also lapses in our part as parents; we have a different style of discipline. I am firm, but hubby’s not. I wish he is a great disciplinarian in the home, but it’s impossible. Every parent wants only the best for their children, and I don’t want my children to walk down the wrong road just like some teenagers now are facing. I know I still have much time to control her because she is just seven and I do believe that God would help me in this aspect. I am very afraid that she would become rebellious enough to walk in her own. I ask God to give us knowledge and wisdom in raising our kids in the right way and in God’s way.
