This is a good read about how to approach children in regards to discipline. At Luminous Learners we find that offering children acceptable options to choose from results in happy and confident children. Since their decisions are acceptable, the teachers follow through, and children feel proud. This results in higher self esteem and greater confidence.
Each child is unique and often children respond differently to similar approaches. Therefore, as caregivers we approach each child in a way that works for them and maintain consistency in that approach.
