Now let's consider a class teacher instructing her class at the beginning of the school year.What does she need to do first to do a good job of teaching a pupil ? her first responsibility is to lay an emotional foundation by set up a good rapport,i mean a mutual liking and respect,good "vibes" between the teacher and her class.
Even,when a psychologist is doing a therapy with a child,it is also important to establish rapport before beginning a psychological therapy or test.The same holds true for a parent attempting to teach positive discipline to a child.Good rapport is the emotional foundation of all discipline or teaching a child desirable and undesirable behavior.
Good vibes + mutual liking and respect = Rapport the foundation of discipline
In piratical terms and reality, the problems of discipline a child begins when the youngster develop to a toddler. Parent are expected to set up a solid rapport when the child is till a baby. Then, you feel,cuddled,played with your child, you even sang to your child, and bathed your child and these have made you much-loved person in your baby’s eye. Your child wants to please you and has the child becomes a toddler, you teach him desirable and undesirable behaviors, this is when you have a huge deposit of rapport to draw upon.
But, from toddler-hood on, many parent make a critical mistakes, they neglect the task of continuing to build rapport with their child. They totally ignore the importance of reestablishing rapport at each and every steps of the child development, which is totally wrong. A word says “The days that make us happy, make us wise”. It is very crucial for parent to spend part of their time with their children simply enjoying together. Nothing more!
