A central objective of CDC is to help children develop self-discipline.

To encourage this, we use a discipline approach that:

2. Fosters the child’s development of inner controls

3. Sets limits, gently and consistently enforced

4. Accepts and acknowledges the individual child’s feelings

5. Constantly and positively reinforces appropriate behavior

6. Is age appropriate for limits and guidance

7. Redirects behavior using positive statements

We do not use any the following, per State of Texas licensing standards:




1. Corporal punishment or threats of corporal punishment

2. Punishments associated with food, naps, or toileting

3. Pinching, shaking, or biting a child

4. Putting anything in a child’s mouth

5. Humiliating, ridiculing, rejecting, or yelling at a child

6. Subjecting a child to harsh, abusive, or profane language

7. Placing a child in a locked or dark room

8. Requiring a child to remain silent or inactive
