Discipline Is Not a Dirty Word: A Workshop Outline for Parents, Teachers, and Caregivers of Young Children.
These workshop exercises are designed to review the more effective techniques parents can use to comfortably discipline their children. Seven basic principles of discipline are discussed briefly. The principles are: (1) tell children what they can do instead of what they can not do, (2) protect and preserve children's feelings that they are lovable and capable, (3) offer children choices only when willing to abide by their decisions, (4) change the environment instead of the child's behavior, (5) work with children instead of against them, (6) give children safe limits they can understand, recognize their feelings without accepting their actions, maintain authority calmly and consistently, and (7) set a good example. Examples, exercises, and homework assignments are provided for each principle. Also provided are discussion leaders, a discipline practices checklist for parents, and practice episodes for teachers and parents of young children and for group leaders working with older children.
