Teaching kids good behavior takes incredibly hard work and endless patience because we all know that it doesn’t happen just like that. When a parent feels that all these efforts go straight down the drain could get on his or her last nerve and trigger an angry response.

According to a policy statement (Effective Discipline to Raise Healthy Children) recently released by the American Academy of Pediatrics, “aversive” discipline techniques like yelling and spanking are a really bad idea. Not only do studies show that they don’t work that well, they can have long-term negative effects.

Ask any successful athlete about the key to their success and they’re likely to mention discipline. Indeed, discipline is an essential foundation for any sport and it is also a key aspect to succeed in other areas of life, especially your career. It helps to achieve a certain mindset towards achieving great things.

A sports coach can have a powerful influence on a child’s life, it can potentially be more than a teacher or parent. During practice or classes, the coach is in a position that demonstrates the value of vigorous effort, continued focus and delayed gratification even when it is difficult. During a competition, players can see the positive results of following the coach’s instructions, in real time.

Unlike other activities, sports can provide instant feedback on how effective a choice was. A player who practices diligently will improve faster than one who slacks and is lazy. Although this also applies to studying and academic performance, the timeline between their choice and a report card is usually too long for a child to make a meaningful connection.

To reach their goals, discipline is one of the most effective tools that successful people use. Sports provide a realistic demonstration of how applying discipline and will in everything can help reach desired goals for competition or mastering a sport skill. Kids who see and realize how discipline greatly helps in achieving their goals in sports will more likely apply it to other aspects of life.

One of the problems with kid’s performance at school or house chores is motivation. It is tough to study for a test or work on cleaning a room with discipline when a child cannot see an immediate effect of the work. Sports, again, due to the vivid and often immediate reward of pushing hard, teaches the values of discipline.

Having discipline helps with staying organized, active, having more self-control, and staying focused. These skills are skills that your kids can bring along in their lifetime, they can come in handy at school, work, and even at home.
