Parent's Responsibilities


The purpose of discipline in our environment is to help children learn acceptable behavior and develop their inner controls. When redirecting or guiding a child’s behavior, age, intellectual development, emotional make-up, and past experiences will be considered and consistency will be maintained in setting rules and limits for the child. Spanking is not apart of our disciplinary policy. No child shall be subject to verbal or physical abuse, threats, cruel, severe, or unusual punishment. Derogatory remarks shall not be made in the presence of the children about the family members of children in care or about the children themselves. No child or group of children shall be allowed to discipline another child. No child shall be deprived of any meals or any part of meals for disciplinary reasons. Please Note: That I have the rights to refuse the parent(s) method if I think it is abusive to the child. Any child who cannot be corrected and is harmful to other children will be DISMISSED WITHOUT REFUND.

The following is a list of some alternate forms of positive discipline that will be used at TLC Learning Academy I & II.

  • Tell the child what they can do.
  • Establish eye contact when speaking with the child.
  • Give choices whenever possible, but only when the child has a choice.
  • Encourage children to solve their problems, and work out conflicts, whenever possible.
  • Redirect the child to another activity.
  • Hold a child until they gain control of themselves.
  • Remove a child from the situation.
  • Isolate the child for no longer than five minutes in a separate area where he or she can have time to gain control. The child that is isolated should never be out of sight of a staff member.
