This chapter is so important!
Imagine yourself working in a toddler program using the principles of this book and the ideas about discipline outlined in this chapter. You are confronted with a hard-to-handle child whose parent thinks she acts that way because you aren’t behaving the way her daughter expects an authority to behave. Create a dialogue between yourself and this parent.
Many times throughout all of the courses I teach, I redirect students away from referring to a child as “bad” or a behavior as “bad.” When I encounter students who present punitive approaches or who feel physical punishment is acceptable, I redirect, encourage exploration from a different perspective, and challenge the concepts that have been presented to them in the past because of the information in this text. Non punitive discipline does not mean passive discipline or discipline without guidance. As you can see in this book, there is a foundation created between a caregiver and a child that leads to successful discipline and guidance. After reading this book and this chapter, why do you think that is an important principle to teach and to reiterate to future child care professionals?
Create a mission statement for a child care environment that is in line with the concepts in this chapter.
How would you educate a new child care professional hired to work in your environment? Imagine you are writing a handbook for new employees that outlines the concepts in this chapter. Share this portion of your handbook here.
