Discuss Discipline and Manage Behavior in the Classroom
Guiding and directing children toward acceptable behavior includes everything parents and teachers do and, everything they say, in an attempt to influence the child. The goal of a good guidance process is to help children achieve self-discipline. The most effective guidance methods require children to think and reflect on their feelings and their actions and actively involve them in the process of solving the problem.
