Your discipline style or technique might depend on a number of factors, including your child’s age, the kind of behaviour you want to teach or minimize, and your child’s temperament. (To raise happy children, your parenting approach should match their personalities.)

WebMD has an excellent article about different discipline tactics, including rewarding good behaviour and taking away privileges. But we’d like to ask you: What methods do you find effective for your family?
