Can someone help me with this question please??
10. When setting guidelines or rules for children and then enforcing them, the best advice is to
A. have several discipline measures in mind for consequences of misbehavior.
B. have children help determine the rules whenever possible.
C. post the rules in the room for everyone to see.
D. give children three chances or “strikes” before taking disciplinary action
I think the answer is A, but C is also a good answer.
A is definitely not a choice. Children should know right from the beginning the consequences of misbehavior.
C is fine for classrooms where children can read -- but it's a supplement to the main purpose of the guidelines.
B is definitely the best answer. Believe it or not, children want rules and an orderly routine. They feel ownership of these rules when they help determine them.
