Guidance Principles for Encouraging Self-Discipline: Arizona HSST/CDA Competency Based Training Module #5.
This Child Development Associate (CDA) module focuses on child guidance strategies that promote children's self control and positive social behavior. Objectives are stipulated, activities for achieving each objective are suggested, and an assessment checklist is provided. A study guide emphasizes (1) teacher qualities which lead to close, warm, and understanding relationships, (2) individual patterns of development, (3) the influence of environmental design on relationships between children, (4) necessary basic rules and limits, (5) making rules and limits work, and (6) natural and social consequences of children's behavior. Resources for further study are listed and supplementary materials on the structure of family characteristics, children's mistaken goals, and making useful observations of children's behavior are included.
