Guide “Affection, limits and consciousness” Oven Pepa and F. Javier Romeo SOS in Latin America

We have been several years accompanying the work of SOS Children's Villages in Latin America and the Caribbean through its International Office for the region and some national offices. Is a fascinating project being brave and innovative approaches SOS Children's Villages is taking, and for us is being honored advise them in their processes.

One of the most recent results is the Guide Affection, limits and consciousness. Positive Discipline in the programs of SOS Children's Villages, published in 2017, we have written Pepa Horno and F. Javier Romeo with contributions from dozens of professionals from multiple countries in the region, and coordination team of the International Office for the region. It has been a very interesting process going translating into concrete and applicable ideas professionals and families from countries as diverse as educate from this model. We present it well:

“Seeks to promote positive discipline and self-consciousness in us, grown ups, to generate deep and abiding emotional bonds with children, we educate girls and adolescents. We understand education as a long-term process in which we must achieve to provide life skills to children, and adolescents and make them feel secure and recognized” (p. 6)

From there we explained our version model positive discipline (chapter 2) and differentiate between limit and violence (chapter 3). Here we explore how our experience as families and educators shapes our way of educating (chapter 4), and once we know that our basic tool for education is how we are and behave, our own person, We propose how to accompany children, and adolescents combining affection and firmness (chapter 5). Last, We offer some clues to address some everyday situations (chapter 6), to provide guidance for many other. And we close the book with some questions worth asking (chapter 7), because for us there are no magic recipes, but consciousness-making processes, to be caring and continuously expand.

We want to thank the participation of so many people from so many countries to achieve a comprehensive and useful guide. And we also send special thanks to Valeria Losoviz, who has formated guide carefully for easy reading and quick reference, and Bruno Coppola, for those illustrations full of life.

We hope this guide will provide new ideas for you to continue thinking, both for professional practice in protective environments such as families.

F. Javier Romeo and Pepa Horno
