Introducing Discipline To Your Little One

0 to 4 months


      I often talked to my daughter making eye contact and slowly she too made eye contact and began responding to me.

     Talking and responding builds a life time trust in babies.

4 to 6 months


      I always kept a routine for her eating and sleeping time. I used to dim the lights and made sure she slept on time.

    I even used to come back early from an outing for her bedtime. Keeping them in routine is a good way to keep them disciplined.


6 to 12 months


     This is the time babies start their activities. I had bought picture books and toys to keep her productivity engaged.

    While crawling if she went in the direction she shouldn't be going I used to distract her with other things like her favourite toy. Starting early they slowly begin to understand their limits.


1 to 2 years


      Being the mother of a toddler is tough, after one year my daughter kept me on my toes all the time. She was an active baby and I made a limit for her.

       I began the use of the word 'No' and in a few months time she began understanding me when I said No.

     Sometimes, she would not listen to me and still do the things even if I said No. At those times I would gently tell her that being a good girl she should listen to her Mamma and believe me talking works miracles.

    I also kept her busy with books, toys and lots of outdoor activities which exhausted her and helped maintain her good sleeping time.

2 years onwards

      These are called the terrible twos for no reason. My daughter had become a tantrum queen and I tried my best to keep my patience.

    When she yelled I used to sing rhythms to her. At first she didn't listen but slowly she began listening to me and sometimes she would repeat after me too and then I would hug her.

     Hugging and cuddling have a great calming effect on them. Most of the time the cranky behaviour was at sleeping time and all I would have to do wad switch off the lights, lie with her on the bed, tell her a story and she was asleep within no time.


      Giving her small incentives like a candy or some more time of her favourite TV show worked wonders as well. All we have to do is keep a lot of patience, be persistent, listen to them and give them time and attention. These little ways make a happy and disciplined baby.

About Priyanka Rai


I am a dental surgeon, an army wife and a mother of a 30 months old daughter grooming her round the clock. Writing is my passion and when not writing I love to spend my time in the company of books and my daughter.My life changed completely two and a half years ago when my daughter was born. From being a working woman to a full-time mother was a tremendous transition but I cherish every moment of it. From the moment when I held her first till the time, I walked her to playschool every moment has been sheer bliss. I love talking to her, reading books to her and capturing her different moods and moments.
