3rd Refresher Course – “Child Discipline in an Online and Face to Face Platform”

One of the many difficulties parents and teachers are encountering nowadays is disciplining the children.  The new normal of teaching made it more challenging for teachers to correct the behaviors of their students. To address this issue, Mission Ministries Philippines had its 3rd refresher course entitled “Child Discipline in an Online and Face to Face Platform” last October 9, 2021, facilitated by Prof. Claribel “Bing” Amihan.

Teacher Bing explained the importance of developing self-discipline in the child by explaining the rules and the benefits of following the rules. The child will be motivated to do what is right no matter how difficult and challenging it is.

The topic was divided into 4 subtopics: a) Definition of terms, b) Characteristics of Children c) Goals of Discipline d) Discipline guidelines e) Take care of the self. Teacher Bing had not only discussed the main topic about discipline but broadened it by explaining on understanding the child and the environment he or she may be in. Adding to the child’s development and how gadgets and the internet have been affecting the child.

The webinar was attended by 100 participants. And due to public request, another date was set last November 27, 2021, to cater to other participants who were not able to attend the first webinar. This was the first time MMP’s webinars had a repeat.

First Refresher Course – Hurried Child Syndrome

Are you pushing your child to grow too soon? This is the question the seminar like to point out in MMP’s first refresher course seminar entitled “Hurried Child Syndrome : How to build up children without hurrying them” last September 11, 2021. Prof. Elizabeth Anne King- Santos shared her insights founded by studies made on the cause and effects of hurrying the child.

In this seminar Prof. Santos explained that hurrying a child opposes the nature of a child’s development and adds to the stresses and frustrations that a child is suffering.

We need to build up relationship to the child to better understand him/her and how we can help their development. Focus on individual differences, abilities, learning styles and development. Adults should focus on the character of the child rather on their scores or grades. And let the child play as this is the business of a child, they learn through play.

Prof. Santos, holds a Master of Science in Early Childhood Education from Walden University, Minnesota, USA and graduate of Bachelor of Science in Family Life and Child Development at the University of the Philippines with Latin honors have been a regular speaker of MMP seminars.
