District 54's Parent Educators will host a free program focusing on positive discipline on Wednesday, Oct. 4 from 4:30-6 p.m. The program, which is for parents of children from newborn to five years of age, will take place in Room 123 at Keller Junior High, 820 Bode Road. Children are welcome.
Young children learn self-control, self-help, ways to get along with others, and family and school expectations when parents and teachers of infants, toddlers, or preschoolers are continuously involved in setting limits, encouraging desired behaviors, and offering praise and support. This presentation will offer information about disciplining in a positive way that encourages children to grow and learn in a safe, loving environment, as well as the difference between discipline and punishment.
