Discipline and your Child

My child seems to have a mind of her own

Your child's bad behaviour at this age will express itself as crying and grumpiness. This is probably because she is hungry, overtired, ill or feeling insecure. It is not her fault, as she does not exert much control over herself or her environment. As she approaches her first birthday, she will begin to exhibit a will of her own and may challenge your authority. Allow her the freedom to choose what she wants to eat or wear. This will give her the impression that she has a measure of control over her life. 

Do I need to discipline my child before she is a year old

When your baby is less than a year old, she does very little that would actually require disciplining her. Discipline at this stage will probably take the form of you saying "no" or taking something away from the baby that is not good for her. You can be your child's guide to good behaviour by setting an example yourself.
