What is the youth discipline policy for youth and teens?
Step 1: Warning - The Youth Counsellor addresses the child and it is explained that his/her behaviour is unacceptable and needs to be improved immediately.
Step 2: Reflection Time - If the child continues to disobey the Youth Counsellor, 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 behaviour, the parents are located and the child is grounded from the programme for 24 hours. The child is then welcomed back, but if there is any reservation on the part of the Youth Counsellor, a parent may be required to attend with their child.
Step 4: Dismissal - Once the child is allowed back into the programme after the initial dismissal, if any disobedient behaviour continues, the child will no longer be allowed to participate. More severe behaviors may warrant a higher discipline as deemed appropriate by the Youth Programme Supervisor.
