Parenting Tip: Preventing Bad Behavior Before it Happens

I think many parents would like to know how to prevent inappropriate behavior from occurring when it comes to their children. The problem is finding out how to do so. The answer might be different for every family, and within each family the answer might be different for each child. This is something that parents have to deal with on a case by case basis. No single answer will work across the board.

I read a post titled, “Better Than Spanking: Prevention and Consequences”, and I thought it had some good prevention ideas to consider. I figure that the more ideas for prevention you see as a parent, the better the odds of finding one that works for you is. Even if you are experiencing success with a method now, you might want to consider reading these tips in case something changes.
