o Guidance Talk: Used for dealing with conflicts with adult or when
additional work is needed after a conflict is solved
o Comprehensive Guidance Steps:

Work of guidance is important in helping kids learn how to handle conflicts
and disappointments
Punishment may stop a behaviour immediately but interferes with teaching
children appropriate behaviour
Punishment may reduce children’s initiative if they don’t know which
behaviours will be punished and it may result in children avoiding new
Discipline is important, chaos in the classroom is not healthy for anyone
Planning for Guidance in the Classroom:
Must consider long term effects on kid’s self esteem rather than just
immediate results
Must think of discipline situations as teaching opportunities to help kids
learn how to solve problems, how to negotiate differences, how to handle
frustrations, etc.
Deal with it according to their age group and development level
