Coffee Break Addresses Discipline


Local psychologist and family therapist Thomas Habib of Mission Psychological Consultants spoke on “Love, Discipline and Achievement” in Coffee Break’s evening forum last week. Habib focuses on developing practical skills for disciplining and emphasizes that the goal of maintaining a solid discipline in the family is to develop the valuable skill of a kid’s own self-discipline. Habib cited one long-range study in which children who showed greater impulse control and the ability to delay gratification, which is developed through discipline, went on to become better adjusted, more adventurous, popular, confident, and to have higher SAT scores and GPAs.  Later in life they were shown to be more dependable, responsible and have greater self-control in the face of frustration.
