School-Age Care Resource

"I'm a universal patriot, if you could understand me rightly: my country is the world." -Charlotte Bronte


School-Age Notes has published a practical resource for those working in school-age programs, Discipline in School-Age Care: Control the Climate Not the Children. Authored by Dale Borman Fink, the book provides the message that if caregivers provide the appropriate environment for children then child misbehavior will be minimized. Borman addresses six key elements of school-age programs: children's basic needs, physical environment, activities and schedules, social groupings, rules, and consequences. He discusses the role each element plays in the discipline of school-age children. For more information or to order Discipline in School-Age Children, go to
