Discipline and Responsibility: Building Solid Foundations To Prevent and Resolve Family Conflict.
Franklin, Diane, Ed.; Bankston, Karen, Ed.
This guide contains suggestions for building a solid foundation of discipline and responsibility to contribute to positive relationships between parents and children. Three important steps are to: (1) model appropriate behavior; (2) provide age-appropriate choices to help children build decision-making skills and self-esteem; and (3) set reasonable limits. Descriptions of the practices of several families show ways to approach issues of money, monitoring activities with friends, and after-school arrangements. Discussions of consequences of actions versus punishment and anger management offer suggestions to help parents react in ways likely to lead to positive results. (Contains 19 references.) (SLD)
