How should I discipline my kids?

Calming your emotions

If you find yourself over-reacting to your child, step away from the situation and count to ten. Do this by slowly breathing in and softly counting a number on each breath out. By the time you reach ten, you will have calmed your emotions. You can then return to deal with the situation more reasonably and effectively.
