Item description for What Would Jesus Do?: A Catechist's Guide to Discipline by Maxine Inkel...
Overview What better place to learn discipline than at the feet of Jesus! Jesus was always teaching. One powerful lesson he taught was at the wedding feast in Cana, where he changed water into wine. In these down-to-earth and upbeat reflections, Sr. Maxine offers the example of this miracle as the inspiration for her approach to discipline. She draws on her many years of experience to share with catechists some pointers on various aspects of discipline. Maxine helps them look beyond the external behavior or situation to some of the possible reasons why children misbehave. Some of the topics covered are: dealing with distractible children, what to do when a child has an "attitude," avoiding small group chaos, helping children who fall behind, and making the most of time. As Maxine says in the introduction, "Turning water into wine can become a wonderful lifelong habit." Whether you are a veteran teacher or just beginning, you will be informed, inspired, and encouraged by Maxine's practical approach, as well as her love for children and for teaching. An invaluable guide for catechists and teachers.
Publishers Description St. Maxine draws on her many years of experience to share with catechists advice on various aspects of discipline. Through concrete examples and suggestions, she shows how to change the "water" of negative situations into the "wine" of joy.
