1. Don’t discipline a child for mistakes, accidents, or failures – toddlers, unfortunately, make a lot of mistakes, accidents and fail a lot due to the fact that they need to learn, grow and understand
  2. Don’t break the bond of love – punishment can be done with a lot of love. The child needs to know that he/she is always loved and it is that what the child has done that you don’t like and not the child
  3. Don’t be a dictator – don’t say no too often and without explaining the reason. Say yes more than you would no. Be careful of too many house rules, just the most important
  4. Don’t get involved within a will struggle – especially with a toddler as they will always test your authority to see how far they can push you and pick your battles.
  5. Support your spouse’s authority – you have to stand together, they have to see that you are on the same page.
