Teaching Self-Discipline to Children

Instilling self-discipline in children will provide them with tools necessary for achieving success in the classroom and throughout life. Parents are a key factor in helping youths become good at disciplining themselves and local 4-H programs can be helpful as well.

A recent research study of 204 eighth-graders focused on the relationship between the youngsters’ self-discipline and their school achievement. Researchers found that self-discipline, when measured in the fall of the school year, had more than twice as much effect on students’ final grades in the spring as their measured IQ or scores on national achievement tests.
