This paper explains what positive discipline entails, examining its purpose, its methods and its implementation. The paper also discusses the effect of positive discipline on a student's self-esteem and presents an example of the application of positive discipline in a preschool classroom situation.
From the Paper:"The purpose of positive discipline is to enhance children's ability to control their behaviors, take responsibility for their actions and make appropriate decisions. More than just eliciting the desired behaviors from the children, positive discipline places a strong emphasis on promoting the healthy development of children. Essentially, the implementation of discipline should not lead to the degradation of the self-esteem and dignity of the children. Rather, children should be empowered in the process of learning how to make decisions and displaying desired behaviors."
