A smack, a telling off, a removal of toys or sweets, the usual.What is acceptable discipline for a 20 month old?
Obviously I disagree. He shouldn't have to put up with it. It is like bad manners. You could say he should generally put with rudeness or you could try and stamp it out.I would think a crying child is something that a bus driver would deal with on a regular basis. He needs to realize it comes with the job...
I disagree it is natural. I and certainly my 60+ year old father never did most of what children today are allowed to get away with.I've managed to deal with many crying, screaming children over the course of different jobs without it affecting my work. Again, answer my question, where do you draw the line? What else are you willing to justify because this driver couldn't handle a child doing what children naturally do.
A 20 month old is not a suckling infant at breast and children older certainly aren't. I'm not sure you understand what is being talked about.Part of being a good parent is KNOWING when to discipline your child. If your child is crying because they are hungry, are you going to beat them...or FEED them?
