“Teachers who know a lot about child development and are confident in their skills can be much more effective in guiding students in their learning; if they can regulate their emotions, they are less likely to hit, shout and punish students,” she said.

 Ms. Padullo gave emphasis on the Positive Discipline in Everyday Teaching model founded on child rights and educational principles. This further helps teachers build a strong and respectful relationship with the students
