When can I start disciplining my baby?


Hello mothers! My daughter is 1 year old and her behavior suddenly started to get worse and worse. She became really annoyed of everything, screams and cries all the time even when she doesn’t need anything. I don’t want to be too hard on her, because she is such a baby still, but I feel like I should do something with it, otherwise it may get even worse. When did you start teaching your baby about “bad” and “good” behavior? How can I start?

  1. I think you should be patient and wait at least until 3 years old. She is a little human who is exploring and learning this world, it’s too early to understand to her what is “bad” and what is “good”.

  2. My son is 2 years old now and he is naughtier than when he was 1 year old! Children are children. Be patient! Good luck.

  3. I have the same problem with my daughter! She is 1.3. She started crying during the day and also in night, screaming for no reason and I am not sure why. I think she just has a hard character. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. When my son was 1 year old he was the same, maybe it’s such a period for them when they don’t know what they want and simply trying to get our attention. ๐Ÿ˜€ He is 1,3 now and it started again.. but his teeth began to grow, so it might be it.

  5. How I understand you, my son is like that too. I can’t just stand there day trying to calm him down but I am not sure what should I do then? He can’t be quiet for a minute!He would be screaming and crying until he gets what he wants! Probably the best way is ignoring while doing the stuff.

  6. Be patient, girls! Babies are learning through crying and screaming. You should try to explain them in a loving mother’s way that it’s wrong to behave like that, every mother should know an approach for her own child! Eventually they will learn, if you keep repeating the same thing to them! Take care everyone.

  7. I think it’s just another phase of their active development – 12-14 months. They learn a lot at this period and don’t sleep very well at this time and one of the symptoms at this stage is annoying their parents. ๐Ÿ˜€ Hopefully it will be over soon!

  8. According to my own experience, the best thing to do is trying to distract them from oneย a not-so-good activity to something better, but still fun. Another effective way is ignoring, though it may make your baby think that you don’t care about her and we don’t want that. Last one is to respond for their hysterics with love – when your daughter starts screaming and being naughty, just come over to her and start kissing her with a happy smiley face, show your affection and give her a treat. Many kids can’t stand smile of their parents and start smiling in response, especially if they’ve got the treat! Good luck!

  9. One year old is when their communication improves a lot, so I think it’s a good timing to start explaining things, but still, they don’t understand us that well yet so we should really work on our intonation when we want to show that we are happy or unhappy about something!

  10. Screaming and crying at this age is normal! Babies start moving by themselves when they are 1 year old and getting to know more and more information about this world. Imagine, how much new things they learn every day?It’s good, that you aren’t too hard on your daughter, it’s not a right age for the restrictions, the best you can do is to protect her from doing something bad/dangerous by taking it away from her sight. She doesn’t understand you properly yet,but try to explain her without screaming “why not” and one day she will start responding to you. Don’t forget to express your feelings, show her your love and care, hug her more often, kiss her. Children must feel our love and trust me, when they do, they don’t want to upset their parents and be naughty as often!
