Default "How do you discipline your child?"

When you take a child to a mental health provider, sometimes also just the pediatrician though then it's not as in depth, they ask "how do you discipline your child? What works/doesn't work?" Even worse, it's often on a form. I never know how to answer this question. Since it's for a mental health provider, they want more than just "I don't spank". That response is fine for the pediatrician, she's always visibly relieved when I assure her we don't do that and then she moves on. But the therapists want more information and now I'm looking at a form for a psychiatrist with this question and I can't think of something succinct that says what we do. "teaching, practicing, making amends"? How do you answer this? We don't spank or do a traditional time-out but we do discipline and require a level of cooperation and obedience (though we don't use that word often) so I have a hard time communicating that.
