Does discipline change as a child grows up?

Adapt Discipline to Age

Article by Jan Wilson at SOLO for Singles: “Gear discipline toward the age of your child. Your child at two needs a different kind of discipline that he/she will at five, ten, and fifteen years of age. If fact, each additional year of age will have you giving up control of your child's life to your child. Letting your child control his/her life in a manner suitable to age, is one more way to grow self-esteem.” Trying to make a 17-year old sit in a corner won't work, but taking away driving privileges will.
