Discipline begins in the home, what children see and hear there determines what they learn, do and say. Thus children come to school with established, parent-approved norms of behaviour.
When children find that home rules differ from school rules they get confused, cannot handle the conflict between the different norms and become emotionally upset. They also have to accept the consequences of non-conformity.
Social adjustment, emotional stability and mental welfare at school thus depend upon the home support. We, therefore, ask that the rules that Carmel operates by (see above) and the standards we expect are supported and reinforced at home.
We must work together if our children are to become well-adjusted members of society.
