Fourth Workshop: Time Out and Other Disciplinary Methods and Anticipating Problems: Managing Children in Public Places
- Introduce the use of mild discipline for noncompliance and unacceptable social conduct
- Train parents in the use of an effective time out method as discipline for child misbehaviour
- Train parents in adapting the previously taught child management methods for use in public places
- Teach parents a four-step “think aloud-think ahead” procedure for anticipating and reducing public misbehaviour
- Train parents to use this four-step procedure before the transition to major activities in which misbehaviour might be expected.
