Activities Helpful in Developing Discipline

To develop discipline,a few activities are :

  • Physical exercises and games in playground for children aged 3 or above where they can climb, slide, swing and run for 20/30 minutes daily; [1]
  • Nurturing aesthetic values by allowing them to choose from various activities (clay, crafts, embroidery, painting, tie & dye, cooking, origami, soft-toys & puppet making so on..) .This helps them to express beauty and teaches them self-discipline; [2]
  • Setting up practical corners for Montessori activities that encourage discipline and concentrating on an activity, and the habit of clearing up after using materials; [3]
  • Personalised learning programs for the age group (11-13) where they organized themselves, working in small groups or individually to do various assignments. This allowed them to exercise self-discipline and self-organization. [4]
