“‘How to work with kids and not be mean.’ That’s the subtitle of today’s “Positive Discipline” seminar, conducted through one of the nation’s most extensive training networks for afterschool workers. The staffers discuss the problem behaviors they face with kids in the program here: not listening, teasing, lying, not trying, talking back, and stealing. Then, they try to figure out what to do about it.”
