Sometimes, as fathers, it's easier to be a strict disciplinarian and yell at our kids. I think the more effective way to discipline our kids, is to reinforce when they do something well. Children tend to be resistant and rebellious when we discipline them in a negative way, and they tend to respond much better to positive reinforcement. One rule of thumb, is to use four positive reinforcement to criticism or any negative feedback that you have for your children.
