What are the discipline methods used?
Our intention with discipline is to help the child learn to be a respectful, self-disciplined individual. We allow the children to experience natural consequences. The adult steps in to give language to the child’s experience and help him understand what happened.
The discipline model at MAC involves a re-direction from the adults. We allow the children to solve their own problems whenever possible. If an adult does need to step in, it is in a respectful way that still allows the children to be involved in resolving the issue.
