Toward Self-Discipline: A Guide for Parents and Educators.
Gilstrap, Robert, Ed.
The roles of parents, teachers, school administrators, and members of the community in developing self-discipline in children are examined in this collection of articles. Chapter 1 describes how parents can promote the development of self-discipline in their children through such methods as setting limits and establishing a framework for discipline. Chapter 2 provides environmental planning guidelines and interpersonal guidelines to aid beginning teachers in fostering self-discipline in their students. Chapter 3 presents guidelines for the experienced teacher about his or her role as a teacher, the developmental needs and abilities of children, aspects of teacher-student relationships, and the influence of parents, peers, curriculum, and organization. Chapter 4 reviews the school principal's role in the development of self-discipline in children. The last chapter examines the responsibility of community members in educating children and describes a few programs designed to help develop self-disciplined children. (Author/JA)
