By the elementary school years, children can be involved with behavioral guidance. They can participate both in setting behavioral expectations and in choosing consequences for unacceptable behavior.
Restricting privileges can also be an effective discipline tool for elementary school aged children. Losing the use of screen time, for example, can be a big motivator in improving behavioral choices. It’s important to note for restricting privileges to be effective, the nanny cannot make empty threats and must follow through in the restrictions.
