Last night I was filling out all the paperwork for D's new daycare, and they had this great Getting To Know You form. They asked about D's favorite foods, what does he call the members of his household, favorite toys, etc. Then they asked us to describe our style of discipline. He's only 16 months old, so pretty much right now it's a firm but gentle no with explanation/redirection. I didn't know how to describe that, so that's what I wrote! I think as he gets older and is able to understand more (and respond more appropriately), that will change and I'll be more able to describe it.

How would you describe your discipline style? And do you think it's evolved as your child has gotten older?
