What is the youth discipline policy for youth and teens?
Step 1: Warning - The Youth Counselor addresses the child and it is explained that his/her behavior is unacceptable and needs to be improved immediately.
Step 2: Reflection Time - If the child continues to disobey the Youth Counselor, a time out is issued and the parents are notified at pick-up time.
Step 3: Suspension - If a time out is not effective in eliminating the inappropriate behavior, the parents are located and the child is grounded from the program for 24 hours. The child is then welcomed back, but if there is any reservation on the part of the Youth Counselor, a parent may be required to attend with their child.
Step 4: Dismissal - Once the child is allowed back into the program after the initial dismissal, if any disobedient behavior continues, the child will no longer be allowed to participate. More severe behaviors may warrant a higher discipline as deemed appropriate by the Youth Program Supervisor.
