Discipline is a form of teaching, not a type of punishment. There is a fine line to disciplining children---you want to give them freedom to explore and be kids but you also need to reinforce reasonable behavior. Knowing when to butt in and when to step back is never easy. Positive discipline involves being respectful of children---their freedom and their developmental levels---while setting limits and teaching them about the do's and don'ts of life.
