Discipline that Encourages Moral Behavior - I think as parent's we have all wondered what types of discipline can encourage moral behavior, and what types of discipline should we avoid. One of the most powerful types of discipline that can foster moral development is inductive discipline. Inductive discipline is a way you can teach a child to consider others feelings. For example, if your child is playing at the park and they hit another child what do you do. A powerful tool to use is talk to your child about the event of hitting another child and then help them to see how what they done hurt the other child's feelings....   [tags: Child Discipline] 961 words

Discipline is Not Abuse - Many people today are getting arrested for simply disciplining a child. But, in older times disciplining a child set good moral standards and taught that child on what that child was supposed to do and what not to do. There is a fine line between abuse and discipline. So what is child abuse. Child abuse consists of any act of commission or omission that endangers or impairs a child’s physical or emotional health and development. Child abuse includes any damage done to a child which cannot be reasonably explained and which is often represented by an injury or series of injuries appearing to be non-accidental in nature....   [tags: Moral Standards, Child Abuse, Discipline]

Conflict and Resolution in Herbert's Discipline - Conflict and Resolution in Herbert's Discipline       George Herbert’s struggle to be humble enough to fully accept God’s undying love can be located within each of his poems. The way in which Herbert conveys this conflict is by utilizing structure as well as metaphysical techniques. This combination of literary devices creates a physical reality that allows Herbert, or the poetic speaker, to “make his feelings immediately present” (245). These devices, at first, appear to be artificial and contradictory to the poet’s goal of making God’s word visible....   [tags: discipline] 1286 words

Discipline in the 80's Classroom - Growing up as child of the 80's and early 90's, if I went to school and received a paddling or spanking for doing something wrong, I was quite aware of, or at least had the knowledge of the bad behavior that was disregarded and the consequences of my inappropriate action.

Forms of Discipline: Punishment is too Aggressive - ... Children that have been victims to spanking may feel devalued, their self-worth gone, and turn to lying to avoid spankings (Rochman). Several studies have proven that the more often a parent strikes at a child, the more likely the chance of the child striking back (Ogilvie). Unfortunately, spanking is a never-ending cycle in the case that parents who have been disciplined in this way when they were kids find that spanking is the only way of punishing (Rochman). Unsurprisingly, out of over eighty different studies conducted on the effects of physical punishment, not one has come back with results that show any positive associations to this form of discipline (Rochman)....   [tags: punishments, discipline, spanking]

A Parent Should Consider Other Means of Discipline Than Spanking Their Child - Whenever a parent disciplines (means of correcting) a child, they are teaching them, and letting them know there are boundaries in life.

Corporal Punishment - Over the years, the use of corporal punishment or physical punishment, which is also known as spanking, has been argued and debated upon. Children need to be disciplined and though there are different forms of discipline, sometimes all a child needs is a little spanking to set them straight. Corporal punishment is the deliberate infliction of pain as retribution for an offense, or for the purpose of disciplining or reforming a wrongdoer, or to deter attitudes or behavior deemed unacceptable. The argument over whether to spank or not to spank usually devolves into two points of view....   [tags: Discipline] 1376 words

Behavior Problems in Schools Due to Lack of Discipline - Parents and students seldom dispute the disciplinary actions of school authorities up until the late 1960s. Schools are a place considered to provide instruction, instill good value, and inspire the morals of our nation (Arum 60).

The authority initiated from the English common law concept of in loco parentis which means in place of the parent. This law allowed parents to give school personnel a given amount of control over their children when they place their children in school (Yell 8)....   [tags: Education Schooling]

Issues Within the Discipline of Forestry - Issues Within the Discipline of Forestry The idea of forestry in the sense that we know it today is only about four hundred years old. Forestry developed mainly out of the need for a continual supply of wood products. There were a few forest reserves for hunting or preservation in Europe, but the idea of managing a forest for a number of resources is quite new. There are four stages that almost all societies have gone through when trying to develop this idea of forestry. The first stage has to do with the unregulated abuse of forest products to be used as energy, building supplies and also to be cleared to make way for agricultural land....   [tags: Environment Conservation Growth Agriculture Paper]

Classroom Discipline and Management Philosophy - The goal in our classroom is to teach self-discipline, responsibility, cooperation, and problem-solving skills. Common causes of misbehavior include an attempt to meet unmet needs (belonging, significance, fun); a lack of needed skills (social and academic); inappropriate expectations; lack of structure; and a lack of sense of relevance. We will be focusing on non-punitive solutions to problems based on kindness, firmness, dignity and respect.

The Discipline of Chinese Painting: An Internal Reflection of Life & Art - When one comes into contact with a Chinese painting, the style is almost instantly recognizable. The attention to detail, craftsmanship, and vast depictions of elaborate landscapes appear to pay homage to mother earth in an attempt to reach a state of eternal balance with nature and life. Before this equilibrium could be achieved, one must attain internal discipline. This was required before one began mastering their brushwork in Chinese culture. In Mai Mai Sze’s “The Way of Chinese Painting,” 1959, New York: Vintage Books, Random House, Sze discusses the philosophy known as Daoism/Tao, or “the way.” Before one became a skilled painter, one trained in the personal disciplines of poetry, art,...   [tags: Art ]

An Evaluation of Case Studies and Their Contribution to Cognitive Neuropsychology as a Discipline - Cognitive psychology is the study of the brains internal processes that guide behaviour; to study cognition, psychologists examine case studies of patients with damaged brains that can infer areas, and functions involved in particular processes.

Cognitive neuropsychology has developed from cognitive psychology to become a discipline in its own right; it investigates the function and structures of the brain involved in cognitive processes and should not be confused with cognitive neuroscience, which is primarily conc...   [tags: Case Study ]

Philosophy of Classroom Discipline - Philosophy of Classroom Discipline “Power is exercised only over free subjects, and only insofar as they are free. By this we mean individual or collective subjects who are faced with a field of possibilities in which several ways of behaving, several reactions and diverse compartments may be realized.” (Foucault) Foucault and Heidegger, modern philosophers, both describe power in these terms, as the facility to manipulate an object without force. Understanding this point of view is important, not only for state institutions who attempt to exert power over citizens and deviants, but also for teachers as they try to use disciplinary power to control the events in their classroom....   [tags: essays research papers] 749 words
