Discipline can be one of most difficult issues for parents and childcare providers alike. As you know, there are many different reasons why children behave in challenging ways. There are also different ways that parents and caregivers deal with these challenges. Some discipline methods are different from culture to culture. It is important to be aware of these differences. As a childcare provider, you not only care for the child, but you also can help the parents and family. You can also ask for the parents’ help in understanding their child. You can work together to teach the child self-control and acceptable behavior.
these pages you will find ideas on how to talk with parents about guidance
and discipline. You will also discover ways to create a partnership with
parents. Remember that quality childcare depends on a positive relationship
among you, the child, and the child’s parents and family.
