In response to commentaries on the model of discipline effectiveness proposed by J. E. Grusec and J. J. Goodnow (1994), it is noted that the model places as much emphasis on affect as on cognition and that it is certainly applicable to the preschool years. The development of a sense of self, ability to self-regulate, and attachment are discussed as important precursors of internalization. Further developmental considerations are offered in response to the commentaries, along with a reiteration of the argument that range of acceptability of a child's behavior must be included in an account of parental discipline.
