Transcription: 
Understanding a child´s developmental stage is really important in discipline. Remember one of the most common errors that happen in discipline really comes from parents having unrealistic or unnatural expectations of their children. So understanding what is normal for a child´s age and stage is really helpful. For example, knowing a child at 18 months, what they are really capable of, allows you to know how long you can expect them to sit in a highchair for in a busy restaurant. A two year old, the same thing. You need to understand how long they can wait if you are having a conversation with another adult, how long, what is normal for them to wait. A three year old, and so on. It is important to understand what the developmental norms are in order to have very realistic expectations of their behavior.
