Beyond Discipline to Guidance

Conventional discipline tends to carry the baggage of punishment and to pressure teachers to be technicians rather than professionals. Teachers who use guidance prevent many problems by using developmentally appropriate practice, positive communication skills and affirming relationships with children and families. They teach children to explore problems, rather than punish children for having problems they cannot solve, and guide toward skills that reduce and resolve classroom conflicts.
