Discipline Is Not a Bad Word

Charlotte Cushman

There are basically two schools of thought about discipline. One is the direct approach where the child is confronted for his misbehavior and given consequences. The second approach is indirect where the child is redirected and consequences are avoided. Maria Montessori advocated strong, direct correction from the adult until the child achieves self-control. This talk explains Montessori’s view on discipline, why it is the right view, how discipline works and why discipline is not a bad word.
