What do you do when your 8-month-old seems to understand the word "no," but ignores you? Is he already being defiant? Is it time to think about discipline?
 
Many parents start thinking about discipline when their baby is about 8-12 months old, moving around and showing some awareness of what "no" means. Parents may even become frustrated and angry at their babies.
 
Kathy Zeisel, state leader of Parents as Teachers at Parent Trust for Washington Children, talks about what babies really know and can do and what discipline is for infants and toddlers.

Learning for Life airs every Wednesday on KING 5 Morning News on KONG 6/16 TV between 8:15 and 8:30 a.m.
