Discipline: Parent Handbook. Mehlville School District, ESEA Title III, PACE Program.
Mehlville R-9 School District, St. Louis, MO.
This handbook discusses the various aspects of discipline (defined as the teaching of a child to behave in ways that the parent considers desirable and avoid behaving in ways the parent considers undesirable). The guide discusses the Adlerian approach to disciplining children, which stresses democracy in the family on the basis of the equality of individuals. The Adlerian approach uses natural and logical consequences as a discipline for the child, rather than the power of the parent; encouragement of the child is also important along with parental action. To understand better how parents discipline their children and what kind of behaviors are disciplined, several suggestions are made for observing and analyzing specific parent-child interactions. Mutual problem solving, a method by which both parent and child can solve their conflicts by finding solutions acceptable to both, is recommended for parents. The handbook has an appendix about behavior modification, with behavior charts and rating scales. (Author/SE)
