Applying play to discipling children

Discipling your child in the correct way is vital. Children need to learn the difference between right and wrong, however this can sometimes be difficult and lead to children being scared to express themselves and challenge authority. It is important to always allow time to explain to your child why you are disappointed with their behaviour and give them a chance to think about the consequences of their actions. A lot of the time children don’t know why they are being punished even though it is obvious to us adults.

Here are some great ideas that encourage discipline through creative play. Not only can your child learn rules but also they can begin to empathise through role play and find the correct ways to channel their frustrations. The activities also give parents a chance to see their children in a different light and may help in finding the route of bad behaviour.
