Always teach your children the art of positive behaviour. Most children do not like when they are corrected or interrupted by elders. This is not an accepted behaviour and parents must take up this opportunity to teach their child about self-discipline. They must be taught about how to stay calm and listen to what other person has to say and to behave in a good manner and this will definitely develop good attitude in the child. When you are teaching self-discipline to your child, make sure to follow it yourself because a child always looks up to his parents and will definitely try to adopt their behaviour because in the eyes of a child, parents are always right.
Encourage your child to indulge in activities that promote self discipline like taking up music lessons, learning scripts, cleaning room, taking care of belongings, helping a friend, sports etc. There are tons of activities, a child could engage in, in order to learn the value of self-discipline. It is always important to encourage a child to try and try again to achieve a goal. This important to learn because life is tough and if you do not try hard, you will not be able to achieve what you desire.
So, it is good to cultivate this behaviour in a child.
This could start from tying shoe laces to sorting socks or stacking clothes properly. Whenever your child receives some kind of reward for doing something good, take that opportunity to tell them that you have been able to achieve this because of your self-discipline nature. Never ever resist yourself from giving a pat on the back or a sweet hug, whenever your child does something great. Parents always intend to provide the best and easier life to their children and that often turns into lack of self-discipline and self-control.
It is good to provide everything your child but do check that it should not compromise with the establishment of self-discipline.
Always remember, self-discipline is most important quality that a child can develop. The book talks a lot about helping the children develop problem solving skills and encouraging them to be part of finding solutions around the home.
Brooks speak at The Learning and the Brain conference in SF this February, and I bought his book to see what insights it might give me as a high school teacher working with my students. I found it to be a very interesting read, with good anecdotes that illustrated the author's points well. The one thing that struck me as a bit odd was the way the authors explained their own thought process as they were counseling parents on how to work with their children.

Rather than preach their philosophy to the reader, they get their points across by relating experiences with families they've helped. I'm trying some of the principles with my kids, and I can feel a difference.
Excellent parenting book to help parents get away from the traditional punishment approach, which usually only temporary solves problems, and switch to collaborative problem solving approach, to help your children learn to problem-solve and become adults with confidence and good self-esteem.
