Discipline in School-Age Care: Control the Climate, Not the Children
Dale Borman Fink
In this book, the author asks school-age care staff to rethink their attitudes about behavior and discipline in children under their care. By examining six key elements of a school-age care program, the author discusses how the structure of the program may be contributing to behavior problems and suggests ideas on how to resolve those problems. These six elements are (1) the child's basic needs, (2) the physical environment, (3) activities and schedules, (4) social groupings, (5) rules, and (6) consequences. The book also has scenarios and exercises to complete to assist the reader in applying the information shared. (43 pages)
