Discipline

Discipline is a process that uses teaching, modeling, and other appropriate strategies to maintain behaviors that ensure a safe, orderly, and productive learning environment by changing unacceptable behavior to acceptable behavior.

In thinking about your own teaching experiences, how often do you reinforce appropriate behaviors? How often do you focus on the inappropriate behaviors?

Food for Thought:

  • Recognize and reinforce ALL positive behaviors, even the “baby steps” that some kids make
  • Work with parents and families to create a successful plan for success
  • Explicitly teach, model, and practice appropriate behaviors and/or expected outcomes

  1. I agree all kids thrive a lot more in an atmosphere of positive attention. If we can get parents into the habit of giving more praise, it would make families stronger. Parents definitely ne d to remember they are their child’s first teachers.
