Beware of comparing children and spouse with others. Don't make a federal case out of kids being children. Be Aware of threatening constantly, but disciplining inconsistently. Beware of belittling children or spouses. Beware of saying during discipline "this is hurting my reputation." Husbands and wives should not argue in front of the children. Don't argue with your spouse when you are disciplining a child. Don't spend time bragging on talents as opposed to character. Be careful to not allow the television or radio
