Discipline and children: birth to 12 years
Discipline and your baby
It is a waste of time and can be harmful to use any kind of discipline on your baby.
They cannot think ahead, understand reason or remember what you want.
Whatever your baby does, it is not to ‘get at you’ or be ‘naughty’.
Your baby needs you to give them a loving touch and gentle words to learn that the world around them is friendly and safe and that you will protect them.
