As parents, our goal is not only to get our children to obey orders, but to also build their characters. Help them develop healthy conscience. Help them to have the sense of right doing. 

Start to build and develop your child's character from the cradle. When you overlook certain behaviours that your infant exhibits without correcting him/her, you are telling her "yeah go ahead, it's very okay and normal to behave that way because you're still a baby". And you'll see your child grow in that manner, because your little child does not know what is right or wrong. 

However, It is our duty as parents to build our children's character, teach them good decorum.  So, whatever negative attitude you see your infact exhibit,  correct him/her before it becomes who he/she is.

The Bible says " you discipline the one you love"(Hebrew 12:6, Revelation 3:19) . 

By building your children's character, which involves a whole lot, for example rebuking your child when he/she misbehaves, or using a cane when necessary, teaching them to pray, love,  care, appreciate, do right to mention but a few,  you will not find it difficult when they become teenagers. 

We cannot do all these by our strength,  but with the help of the HOLY SPIRIT, we will always know when to do what.
