Reactive parents yell, scream and hit haphazardly when they have “had enough.” But this parenting style will backfire on you, because reactive parents always feel fed up with their child’s behavior. Instead of enjoying your children, a reactive parent is actively looking for their child’s next rule violation.

As proactive parents, moms and dads must decide what the rules are and what the consequences will be for breaking those rules. Consistency and self control are the two keys that work hand in hand to correctly disciple and lead our children. Remember, if we are inconsistent, we will overreact when we’ve had enough of the bad behavior.
We know proactive parenting may seem like hard work, but it will always pay off. You child will learn to choose the right thing because you have guided them in forming the correct habits and attitudes.
Don’t “react” to your child’s behavior. Provide a calm example and consistent guidelines. No matter how much effort this seems to take at first, later childhood discipline will be much easier and your child will learn to do the right thing calmly in the face of frustration.
