This book is recommended for lecturers & students of social policy & social care; social workers; head teachers & school teachers; parents & pupils; foster carers, healthcare workers, care providers, service users and the policy makers.
This handbook broadly and concisely covers several aspects of abuse, neglect and ill-discipline in various quarters. It looks into a lack of compassion for the elderly, the physically challenged and the infirm; as well as insufficient care and attention for the carers themselves in social care institutions. It also addresses indiscipline in schools and why strict discipline must be enforced in the educational sector.
Discipline within the areas of parenting and foster care is addressed, along with some specific examples of ill-disciplined behaviour among foster children and school children. The consequences of over-pampering are looked at, together with the accountability of social workers and parents. Some recommendations are outlined for curbing ill-discipline in these sectors and in society at large.
Interviews with people from various places are included, and these briefly examine different aspects of discipline within selected countries.
