SCHOOL-AGE CARE RESOURCE
School-Age Notes has published a practical resource for those working in school-age
programs, Discipline in School-Age Care: Control the Climate Not the Children.
Authored by Dale Borman Fink, the book provides the message that if caregivers
provide the appropriate environment for children then child misbehavior will be
minimized. Borman addresses six key elements of school-age programs: children's
basic needs, physical environment, activities and schedules, social groupings,
rules, and consequences. He discusses the role each element plays in the discipline
of school-age children. For more information or to order Discipline in School-Age
Children, go to www.AfterSchoolCatalog.com.
