While there are countless books, articles and blogs on parenting, there isn't one method of discipline that has a 100 percent success rate. So, it's perfectly fine to learn and accept suggestions from a variety of sources.
"I think it is fine to ask questions of other parents. However, keep in mind that your child may be different from their children," Zacchilli says.
Another good source for suggestions on your child's discipline could come from caregivers, teachers or family members that spend a lot of time with your little one.
Learning how your child responds to different types of discipline is crucial, too. "Be aware of your child’s reaction when you discipline him or her," Zacchilli says. "This reaction can provide insight into the effectiveness of your chosen strategy."
