How do you feel about your ability to discipline your child/children?   Do you feel your discipline is fair and effective?  Do your discipline techniques prevent the unwanted behavior of your child?  What kind of discipline do you use?  What techniques do you use to encourage positive behavior? Do you think you might need some help with this?
