Decisions About Discipline

Cry vs. comfort
Childcare providers can make crucial decisions affecting your child's development. One action with certain impact is allowing an infant to cry, or comforting the baby.
To spank or not to spank
Before selecting a caregiver for your child, ask about the policy of spanking. State law forbids public daycare centers from using corporal punishment, or spanking.
Verbal guidance and discipline
When choosing a caregiver for your child, discuss how instruction and correction should be verbalized. Some daycare centers and home caregivers practice positive direction, forming all correction statements with no negative phrases.
