SUMMER PROGRAMS
Guide 2013
T
he Children’s Trust is committed to
improving the lives of children and
families in Miami-Dade County by
making strategic investments in their futures.
With that mission in mind, we are pleased
to offer this comprehensive Summer 2013
Programs Guide. We hope that parents and
caregivers alike find the information to be
helpful and informative.
Investing in summer camps and afterschool programs has been and remains
a cornerstone of Children’s Trust funding.
Our funded programs and many others in
the community are included in the listings
section of this guide. For both summer and
after-school, The Children’s Trust nurtures
high-quality programs for children around
the county and especially in historically
underserved communities. All our programs
are inclusive of children with disabilities.
Quality summer and after-school
programs support working families by
keeping children safe, and by inspiring
learning of all kinds. Fun, engaging
activities – from arts to sports to technology
– promote personal and social awareness,
fitness, and academic skills. To avoid the
“summer slide,” quality summer camps offer
a variety of activities that foster literacy and
reading so that academic progress is not lost
over the summer.
The options listed in this guide represent
a broad selection of programs operated by
public, private and faith-based agencies
and institutions. Programs funded by
The Children’s Trust are identified with a
sun symbol in the zip code where they
are located.
Summer and after-school programs are
not licensed by the State of Florida. Programs
funded by The Children’s Trust adhere
to standards proposed by the National
AfterSchool Association, which also has
instituted an accreditation procedure.
Visit their website, www.naaweb.org, for
recommendations. Also, the National
Summer Learning Association, www.
summerlearning.org, provides services to
communities, school districts and programs,
and information regarding quality summer
learning programs.

Selecting the best
Summer Camp
A
s an involved parent you know that learning shouldn’t stop
in the summer. Your child has studied hard during the
school year, and it’s important that their progress doesn’t
“slide” during the summer months. And because they’ve worked
hard, what’s called for is a learning environment that differs from
that of the school year, one that combines interactivity, fun and
enriching activities.
The most likely place to find this is at a high-quality summer
camp, such as the many affordable options funded by The
Children’s Trust. Quality camps offer a safe and stimulating
environment, one that ensures your child’s reading skills – the core
of their academic progress – will be maintained or improved.
The YMCA, one of many organizations funded by The Children’s
Trust for summer camps, offers a model of interactivity, engagement
and movement for children who spend the full day at camp.
“At the YMCA, our concept in the summer is swim, sports and
play. We take the same approach to the academic component as
we do for after-school, but there’s more fun involved. Summer
camp is a chance to engage kids outside of school where traditional
learning takes place,” says Brian Sheafer, branch vice president of
School-age Services for the YMCA.
“Camp is summer fun. We’re able to take field trips, which we
don’t get to do during the school year. We select a balance of fun
trips – some that are purely fun, and we balance those with trips
that are fun and academic, such as to the zoo,” he added.
Because space and scholarships at camps are often limited,
it’s important to start your search early and to explore multiple
summer camp options for your family. Certainly, you’ll consider
location and activities offered. Some camps offer a special-interest
focus – nature, drama, dance, sports, swimming, technology
and others – an ideal way for your child to explore an interest or
advance a particular talent.
The Florida Film Institute, for example, offers high school
students the opportunity to focus on practical aspects of
commercial motion picture production, including script
preparation, cinematography, lighting, sound recording,
directing, editing, acting and music. Students are instructed by
local film professionals.
“Camp is so unique. Kids come from all different areas, and they
don’t know each other at first, but by the time they leave they’ve
Visit us online at thechildrenstrust.org
become friends – it’s about team-building, bonding and exploring
new creative ideas,” said Stephanie Martino, executive director.
Ask for camp recommendations from friends, family and
neighbors who have enrolled their children previously in programs.
Call prospective camps with any questions and tour the site firsthand whenever possible.
Staff at camps should be welcoming and respectful. In terms
of language and culture, they should reflect the families they are
serving. They should be friendly and cordial towards each other, and
be clearly encouraging of a child’s natural innovation and curiosity.
All camps should meet acceptable supervision guidelines. Large
camps may accommodate hundreds of children, yet appropriate
ratios of attentive, engaged staff will ensure that your child enjoys
an enriching positive experience. For children between the ages
of 6 to 10, there should be one adult for every 10 children. Above
age 11, one adult staff member for every 15 children is considered
acceptable. Around water, however, more supervision is required.
Consider the camp’s facilities. Is the space safe, well-lit and
large enough for children to enjoy their activities? Is there plenty
of outdoor space? Shade? Scan for potential safety hazards both
indoors and out. Ask about supervision in the play yard and
regarding physical play. Are water activities offered? Make sure that
supervising staff know CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and
that swimming instructors are certified.
If your child has a disability, let the camp know as soon as possible;
most camps will do their best to accommodate your child. Ask about
opportunities to socialize with peers with disabilities and for the
chance to network with other families. It’s also important that the
activities and rules be appropriate for your child with special needs.
Safety should be the highest concern for any program. Staff must
always monitor when children arrive, leave and who picks them up.
Your child will be outside for at least a portion of the day, a fact that
presents its own safety risk. Healthy snacks and food and plenty of
water and beverages (low sugar, non-carbonated!) will go a long
way to keep your son or daughter from wilting. Ask when and what
foods and beverages are provided.
To find the “best” camp for your family, start looking early and
consider your budget, location and your child’s best interests.
Especially look for a camp with more “F-U-N” in the learning to be
sure there’s no “slide” in their education this summer.

triumphs, and the place they’re in today,”
says Paul George, Ph.D., historian and
professor of history at Miami Dade College.
Helping kids research their family
histories can be as simple as sharing a
favorite memory around the dinner table,
taking a trip to the library to check out
books about an ancestor’s homeland, or
creating a family tree out of construction
paper and photographs.
Another fun tip: Go on a local expedition.
Through HistoryMiami, formerly the
Miami Historical Museum, George leads
historical tours of Little Havana and other
local neighborhoods.
At the Black Archives, parents can obtain
a map of historical spots like the Ward
Rooming House, which was home to the
black men and Seminoles who helped build
the railroad for Henry Flagler.
“Knowing your ancestral background
helps children better understand
themselves and their potential,” says

eaching children about their family
history is a great way to connect with
them – and learning about their
culture through music, food, stories and
even old photographs gives them a stronger
sense of their identity. The summer months,
without the hustle and bustle of school
and extracurricular activities, offer a good
opportunity for children and youth to
explore their pasts, both personal and
cultural, by engaging in a project.

Foundation of South Florida. Virtual
tours will soon be available on the
foundation’s website.
While many children in South Florida
can trace their heritage to foreign
countries, a trip to their homeland may
be impossible for political or economic
reasons. But parents can still share
their cultural heritage by cooking up
favorite family recipes or taking kids
to restaurants that specialize in the
cuisine of their native land. Local eating
options include everything from Haitian
and Latin American fare to Asian and
European eateries.
Caregivers and older relatives can also
share stories of their own childhoods,
recount favorite family anecdotes or share
folkloric tales from their culture – all of
which are part of the oral histories passed
down from generation to generation.
Experts agree that this tradition can help
children build oral reading fluency, or the
ease with which a child can read, speak
and write. This is an especially important
skill for students whose first language is
not English. Planning a fun family history
project can help minimize the so-called
“summer slide,” the tendency to see
academic skills slide away in the summer
because they’re not exercised.
By keeping kids reading and talking
about family stories, you’re also helping
them work on comprehension skills.
Reading at grade level by third grade is
an important initiative for The Children’s
Trust, which spearheads the countywide
Read to Learn campaign. Another
educational advantage of a family
history project: It gives young people
something to write about. Many schools
require journaling during the summer,
and family stories and trips to local
landmarks can provide ample fodder for
those summer assignments.
Talking to children about where they
come from can also instill pride and
motivate them, especially if you or your
ancestors have overcome hardships,
explains Jenkins Fields.
While it’s important to keep stories
age-appropriate, adults shouldn’t shy
away from telling stories about difficult
or complicated topics. Stories that
demonstrate perseverance through
examples of people who have overcome
obstacles or come from humble beginnings
convey important messages and values.
“Tell the truth,” Jenkins Fields says. “Share
something with children that shows your
struggle, and how you were able to resolve
it in a positive way.”
Talking with older relatives can help kids learn
important lessons about their heritage and family
history. Here are some interview ice-breakers to
help get the conversation started.
• Where do you come from?
• How long have you been here?
• Why did our forbearers come here;
what brought you here?
• What was Miami, or your hometown, like when you were my age?
• When you were my age, what was different
at school, home and church?
• What did you do for fun when you were a kid?
• What were your favorite toys, food and music?
Interview Tips:
• Ask your interview subject to set a date in
advance, and be sure to keep your appointment!
• Set aside 45 minutes to one hour for
the interview.
• Keep questions short and to the point.
• If the person agrees, take notes or make
a video or audio recording.
• Don’t interrupt! Let the parents, grandparents, or other relatives do the talking.

any parents stress over ways to entertain their children
while school is out. But with pool-side movie nights,
petting zoos and more, there are tons of local options for
safe summer fun.
The YMCA of Greater Miami offers diversions like family fitness
classes and farmers markets.
“A family can walk in with kids and do things as a family –
basketball, health and wellness, and swimming,” explains Brian
Sheafer, branch vice president of School-age Services. Activities
vary at each of the YMCA’s four family centers, located in
Homestead, South Miami-Dade, Allapattah and the North Pointe
neighborhood in Northwest Miami-Dade.
The YMCA, funded by The Children’s Trust, also offers summer
camps at many local school sites. Besides recreational sports and
field trips, the camps feature an academic component which
brings in certified teachers to help students improve reading levels,
and learn about nutrition and fitness. A scholarship assistance
program is available for eligible parents.
The Betty T. Ferguson Center in Miami Gardens, which center
manager Quentin Pough refers to as the “Taj Mahal,” offers a range
of options for youngsters and families alike. The community center
offers basketball courts inside and outside, and an indoor pool
complete with a kiddie slide. A computer lab and athletic track are
open to the public. Kids may also take lessons in ballet, tap dance,
drum line and martial arts.
Children with creative flair can also head to the Little Haiti
Cultural Center, which offers classes geared towards the arts.
The center is also the site of Camp Discovery – a free, arts-based
summer camp.
In South Dade, families will want to visit The Little Farm on
weekends to enjoy the farm’s petting zoo, home to rabbits, geese,
piglets and more. The $10 admission includes unlimited pony
rides and the chance to milk and feed the goats. Natural wonders
abound at local parks as well, such as Miami-Dade’s Arch Creek
Park in North Miami Beach, home to a butterfly garden and an
ancient stone bridge once used by native tribes.
Looking to dive into fun? Grapeland Water Park in the City of
Miami features fast slides, a lazy river and pools. You can even
hildren misbehave to push boundaries,
react to frustration, or seek attention.
The key to managing kids who are
acting up? Model positive behavior.
“Children are going to respond to either
your anger or affection, depending on
what you express most strongly,” explains
Dr. Peter A. Gorski, chief health and child
development officer for The Children’s
Trust and a professor of public health,
pediatrics and psychiatry at the University
of South Florida. “If they get the most
attention from scolding and yelling, they
will keep doing that.”
Parents may feel they are in a tough
spot when dealing with teen rebellion
or pre-school temper tantrum. But even
if a parent gets frustrated, they should
always avoid physical discipline, which
can harm the child’s self-worth and
teach aggression.
“They’re going to turn around and kick,
fight and scream if that’s the way they learn
from you how to be in a relationship with
someone,” warns Gorski.
Parents should adopt a proactive
approach by clearly stating their
expectations – as well as the consequences
if a child misbehaves, suggests school
psychologist Lani Kaskel, Ph. D., a licensed
marriage and family therapist.
“Children become immune to constant
yelling and screaming,” she says.
Consequences are important, stresses
Kaskel. If a teen has been cautioned about
the limits on cell phone use, but then
exceeds their cell phone minutes, they can
work off the debt by doing chores around
the house. Parents of younger children
should avoid bargaining, opting instead for
a time-out period equivalent to the child’s
age in minutes, for example four minutes
for a 4-year-old child.
Kaskel says parents should then calmly
address the incident with the child after
the cooling-off period.
“Children should always be given the
opportunity to save face by genuinely
apologizing or rectifying their misbehavior
in some way,” she urges.
Redirecting a child’s attention can also
help minimize meltdowns. Giving your
child some room to make mistakes can also
be an important learning tool, especially
with teenagers on the verge of becoming
young adults.
“Micromanaging, for example, with
homework, may, in some cases, only result
in passive resistance,” says Kaskel.
Parents should encourage both teens
and younger kids to express their feelings
and frustrations – a useful tactic to both
help diffuse the situation and give parents
a chance to understand what is prompting
the bad behavior.
Programs like Informed Families’ Triple
P Positive Parenting Program are also a
resource for parents.
“It’s parenting for any parent,” says Alita
Patterson, Triple P program assistant and
Red Ribbon Certified Schools program
manager. Through group classes and
phone support, parents learn how to deal
with temper tantrums, homework battles,
and teenage rebellion.
Hialeah’s Parks and Recreation
Department offers the Early Prevention and
Intervention Youth and Internship Program
(EPI), for children ages 12-17 who are
minor offenders or need school community
service hours.

Escoger el mejor campamento
de verano
¿Busca un campamento educativo y divertido?
Le ofrecemos algunos consejos para ayudarle a decidir.
C
omo padre responsable, usted debe saber que el aprendizaje no
se detiene en el verano. Su hijo ha estudiado fuerte durante el año
escolar y es importante que su progreso no se pierda en el verano.
Y precisamente porque ha estudiado fuerte es que se precisa de un
ambiente de aprendizaje que se diferencie del año escolar, algo que
combine interactividad, diversión y actividades enriquecedoras.
El lugar más probable para encontrarlo es un campamento de verano
de calidad, como las muchas opciones económicas financiadas por The
Children’s Trust. Los buenos campamentos poseen un ambiente seguro
y estimulante, uno que garantice que las habilidades para la lectura,
núcleo del progreso académico de su hijo, se mantendrán o mejorarán.
YMCA, una de las numerosas organizaciones subvencionadas por
The Children’s Trust para que funcionen como campamentos de verano,
ofrece un modelo interactivo, interesante y dinámico para los niños que
pasan todo el día en el campamento.
“En YMCA, nuestro concepto de diversión es nadar, hacer deportes
y jugar. Tenemos el mismo enfoque del componente académico que
tenemos en [los programas] para después de la escuela, pero que
contiene más diversión. El campamento de verano es una oportunidad
para involucrar a los niños fuera de la escuela, donde se desarrolla el
aprendizaje tradicional”, dice Brian Sheafer, vicepresidente de servicios
para escolares de YMCA de Miami. “El campamento es diversión en
verano. Podemos hacer excursiones, algo que no podemos hacer
durante el año lectivo. Buscamos el equilibrio en las excursiones:
algunas son puramente para el entretenimiento, y tratamos de
equilibrarlas con los que son entretenidas y académicas, como las que
hacemos a un zoológico”, agrega.
Debido a que el espacio y las becas por lo general están limitados,
es importante comenzar a buscar un campamento lo antes posible
para conocer varias opciones. Naturalmente, usted tomará en cuenta
la ubicación y las actividades que ofrecen. Algunos se concentran en
intereses específicos (naturaleza, arte dramático, danza, deportes,
natación, tecnología y otros) lo cual es una forma ideal de que su niño
explore alguno de ellos o mejore un talento particular.
Florida Film Institute, por ejemplo, ofrece a los alumnos de
secundaria la oportunidad de concentrarse en los aspectos prácticos
de la producción de películas comerciales, entre ellos la preparación
del guion, cinematografía, iluminación, sonido, dirección, montaje,
actuación y música. Los estudiantes reciben clases de profesionales
fílmicos locales.
“Este campo es verdaderamente único. Los chicos proceden de
áreas diferentes, y al principio no se conocen, pero cuando termina el
campamento ya se han hecho amigos: se trata de estimular el trabajo
en equipo, la integración y de explorar nuevas ideas creativas”, señala
Visítenos en internet: thechildrenstrust.org
Stephanie Martino, directora ejecutiva de Florida Film Institute. Pídales
recomendaciones a sus amistades, familiares y vecinos que ya han
inscrito anteriormente a sus hijos en esos programas. Llame a algunos
campamentos para hacer preguntas y, cuando sea posible, recorra
las instalaciones.
Los empleados de los campamentos deben ser hospitalarios y
respetuosos. En lo relativo a idioma y cultura, deben ser un reflejo de
las familias a las que atienden. Deben mostrarse amistosos y cordiales
entre ellos, y estimular de forma clara el ingenio y la curiosidad natural
de los niños.
Todos los campamentos deben contar con directrices aceptables
de supervisión. Los campamentos grandes pueden recibir a cientos
de niños, aunque la proporción adecuada de empleados, atentos y
comprometidos, garantizará que su hijo disfrute de una experiencia
positiva y enriquecedora. Debe haber un adulto por cada niño entre 6
y 10 años de edad, y un empleado adulto por cada 15 niños mayores de
11 años se considera aceptable. Cuando el entorno está próximo al agua,
se necesita más supervisión.
Supervise las instalaciones del campamento. ¿El espacio es seguro,
bien iluminado y lo bastante grande para que los niños disfruten
de sus actividades? ¿Tiene suficiente espacio al aire libre? ¿Sombra?
Busque peligros potenciales tanto en el interior como en el exterior del
local. Pregunte acerca de la supervisión en el patio de juegos y en lo
referente a juegos físicos. ¿Se ofrecen actividades acuáticas? Asegúrese
de que los empleados de supervisión sepan aplicar CPR (resucitación
cardiopulmonar) y de si los instructores de natación tienen certificados.
Si su hijo tiene alguna discapacidad, infórmelo al campamento lo
antes posible; la mayoría de ellos hará todo lo posible por acomodarlo.
Averigüe si hay oportunidades de que los niños socialicen con otros
compañeros con discapacidades y sobre la posibilidad de relacionarse
con otras familias. También es importante que las actividades y las
normas sean apropiadas a las necesidades especiales de su hijo.
La seguridad debe ser la principal preocupación de cualquier
campamento. Los empleados siempre deben estar atentos a cuándo
llegan los niños, cuándo se van y quién los recoge. El niño debe
permanecer en el exterior al menos parte del día, un hecho que
presenta sus propios riesgos. Meriendas y comidas saludables y
abundante agua y bebidas (bajas en azúcar, no carbonatadas) podrán
evitar que los niños se debiliten. Pregunte cuándo y qué alimentos y
bebidas se proporcionan.
Para encontrar el “mejor” campamento, comience a investigar con
tiempo y tomando en consideración su presupuesto, la ubicación y el
mejor interés de su hijo. Busque sobre todo un campamento que incluya
la diversión en el aprendizaje para que este no se descuide en el verano.

Aunque muchos niños del sur de
Florida pueden rastrear su origen en
países extranjeros, un viaje a la tierra de
sus antepasados puede no ser posible
por razones políticas o económicas.
Pero los padres pueden continuar
compartiendo su herencia cultural
cocinando las recetas tradicionales
de la familia o llevando a los niños
a restaurantes que se especialicen
en la cocina de sus países de origen.
Pueden ser restaurantes haitianos,
latinoamericanos, asiáticos o europeos.
Las personas encargadas de cuidar
de los niños o familiares mayores
pueden también contar hisorias de su
infancia, recordar anécdotas familiares
o compartir cuentos populares del
folclor de su país, ya que todo ello forma
parte de la tradición oral que pasa de
generación en generación.
Los expertos coinciden en que esta
tradición puede ayudar a los niños a
desarrollar fluidez en lectura oral o
la facilidad con que un niño puede
leer, hablar y escribir. Esto resulta en
habilidades importantes sobre todo para
estudiantes cuyo primer idioma no es
inglés. Planificar un proyecto de historia
familiar puede ayudar a minimizar el
llamado summer slide, la tendencia a

Entrevista a una persona mayor:
Hablar sobre familiares mayores puede ayudar
a los niños a aprender importantes lecciones sobre
su herencia e historia familiar. Estas son algunas
formas de romper el hielo para entablar una
conversación:
• ¿De dónde viene?
• ¿Cuánto tiempo ha estado aquí?
• ¿Por qué nuestros antepasados vinieron aquí; qué los trajo?
• ¿Cómo era Miami o su ciudad natal cuando usted tenía mi edad?
• Cuando tenía mi edad, ¿cómo eran de diferentes la escuela, la casa o la iglesia?
• ¿Qué hacía de pequeño para divertirse?
• ¿Cuáles eran sus juguetes, comidas y
música favoritos?
Consejos para la entrevista:
Por Millie Acebal Rousseau
nseñar a los niños su historia
familiar es una manera estupenda de
relacionarse con ellos, y aprender sobre
su cultura a través de la música, la comida,
historias e incluso viejas fotografías les
da un fuerte sentido de identidad propia.
Los meses de verano, sin el ajetreo de la
escuela y las actividaes extracurriculares,
les brinda a niños y jóvenes la oportunidad
de explorar su pasado, tanto familiar como
cultural, al involucrarlos en un proyecto.
“Investigar su pasado les ofrece una
apreciación más profunda de su familia,
perder habilidades académicas en verano
debido a que no se ejercitan.
Hacer que los niños lean y hablen
sobre sus historias familiares los ayudará
a trabajar en sus capacidades cognitivas.
Alcanzar el nivel de lectura adecuado
para el tercer grado es una importante
iniciativa para The Children’s Trust, que
encabeza la campaña Read to Learn a
nivel del condado. Otra ventaja educativa
de elaborar un proyecto de historia
familiar es que les brinda a los jóvenes
material de lectura. Muchas escuelas
exigen llevar un diario durante el verano,
y las historias y viajes familiares a sitios
de interés local le proporcionan bastante
material para esas asignaciones.
Hablar con los niños sobre su origen
también les puede inculcar orgullo sobre el
lugar de donde vienen y motivarlos, sobre
todo si usted o sus antepasados han pasado
por dificultades, explica Jenkins Fields.
Aunque es importante contar historias
apropiadas según la edad del niño,
los adultos no deben sentir temor de
contar historias sobre temas difíciles
o complicados. Las que demuestran
perseverancia a través del ejemplo de
personas que han superado obstáculos o
que tienen un origen humilde transmiten
mensajes y valores importantes.
“Cuente la verdad”, recomienda Jenkins
Field. “Comparta algo con sus hijos que
muestre las dificultades que pasó y
cómo fue capaz de resolverlas de una
manera positiva”.
• Pedir al entrevistado que fije una fecha para la entrevista ¡y asegurarse de mantener la cita!
• Establecer 45 minutos o una hora para
la entrevista.
• Hacer preguntas cortas y concisas.
• Si la persona está de acuerdo, tomar notas o grabar un video o audio.
• ¡No interrumpir! Dejar que los padres, los abuelos u otros familiares sean los
que hablen.

uchos padres se preocupan por encontrar formas de
entretener a sus hijos cuando están de vacaciones. Pero
existen muchas alternativas locales para pasar un verano
divertido y seguro, como ver películas junto a una piscina, ir a un
zoológico de contacto y muchas más.
YMCA del Gran Miami organiza actividades entretenidas, entre
ellas clases de gimnasia en familia y mercados campesinos.
“La familia puede venir con los niños a hacer cosas juntos:
basquetbol, actividades relacionadas con la salud o el bienestar
físico y natación”, explica Brian Sheafer, vicepresidente de servicios
para escolares de YMCA de Miami. Las actividades varían en
los cuatro centros familiares de la organización, situados en
Homestead, South Miami-Dade, Allapatah y el vecindario de North
Pointe, en el noroeste de Miami-Dade.
YMCA, fundado por The Children’s Trust, también organiza
campamentos de verano en muchas escuelas locales. Además
de deportes recreativos y excursiones, los campos cuentan con
un componente académico gracias a maestros certificados que
ayudan a los alumnos a mejorar su nivel de lectura, además de
enseñar nutrición y cómo tener buen estado físico. Un programa
de asistencia de becas está disponible para los padres.
Betty T. Ferguson Center de Miami Gardens, cuyo gerente,
Quentin Pugh, llama el “Taj Majal”, tiene variadas opciones para
jóvenes y sus familias. El centro comunitario tiene canchas de
basquetbol dentro y fuera y una piscina exterior con tobogán
para niños pequeños. Están abiertos al público un laboratorio de
computación y una pista de atletismo. Los niños pueden tomar
clases de ballet, de tap, de drum line y de artes marciales.
Los chicos con personalidad creativa también pueden ir a Little
Haiti Cultural Center, que ofrece clases enfocadas en las artes. En
el centro también funciona Camp Discovery, un campamento de
verano gratis concentrado en las artes.
En South Dade, las familias pueden visitar los fines de semana
The Little Farm para disfrutar de su zoológico de contacto que
tiene conejos, gansos, cerditos y otros simpáticos animales. La
entrada ($10) incluye vueltas ilimitadas en poni y la oportunidad
de ordeñar y alimentar a las cabras. Las maravillas naturales
también abundan en los parques locales, como el Arch Creek Park
en North Miami Beach, donde hay un jardín de mariposas y un
puente antiguo de piedra que fue utilizado por tribus nativas.
Para “sumergirse” en la diversión, Grapeland Water Park ofrece
toboganes rápidos, un río artificial y piscinas. El último viernes del mes,
os niños se portan mal para probar límites,
reaccionar a la frustración o para llamar la
atención. La clave para lidiar con la mala
conducta de los niños es ofrecerles un modelo
de comportamiento positivo.
“Los niños van a responder con rabia o
afectividad, dependiendo de lo que usted
exprese con más fuerza”, explica el Dr.
Peter A. Gorski, jefe de salud y desarrollo
infantil de The Children’s Trust y profesor
de salud pública, pediatría y siquiatría en
University of South Florida. “Si consiguen
más atención con reprimendas y gritos, lo
seguirán haciendo”.
Los padres pueden tener la sensación de
que están en una coyuntura difícil cuando
tienen que hacerle frente a la rebeldía del
adolescente o las rabietas de los niños
pequeños. Pero incluso si el progenitor se
siente frustrado, siempre debería evitar la
agresión física, que puede dañar la autoestima
del niño y enseñarle a ser agresivo.
“Van a patear, pelear y gritar si esas son
la maneras que aprendieron de usted de
relacionarse con una persona”, advierte Gorski.
Los padres deben adoptar una
perspectiva proactiva expresando
claramente sus expectativas, así como las
consecuencias si un niño se comporta mal,
sugiere la sicóloga Lani Kaskel, terapeuta
familiar y matrimonial licenciada.
“Los niños se vuelven inmunes a los gritos
y chillidos constantes”, señala.
Las consecuencias son importantes,
enfatiza Kaskel. Si a un adolescente se le
ha advertido sobre los límites del uso del
teléfono celular, pero luego se excede en
los minutos, pueden eliminar esa “deuda”
realizando labores domésticas. Los padres
de niños más pequeños deben evitar
cualquier tipo de negociación y optar
por un aplicar un periodo de castigo
equivalente a la edad del niño en minutos;
por ejemplo, cuatro minutos en el caso de
un niño de cuatro años.
Kaskel dice que los padres deben luego
encarar con calma el incidente con el niño
después de enfriar los ánimos.
“A los niños hay que darles siempre
la oportunidad de redimirse pidiendo
genuinamente disculpas o rectificando su mal
comportamiento de alguna manera”, aclara.
Redirigir la atención de un niño también
puede ayudar a minimizar el malestar. Darle
la oportunidad de cometer errores puede
constituir igualmente una herramienta de
aprendizaje, sobre todo a adolescentes a
punto de convertirse en jóvenes adultos.
“Controlar de forma excesiva, por ejemplo
las tareas escolares, puede en algunos casos
tener como resultado simplemente una
resistencia pasiva”, señala Kaskel.
Los padres deben estimular a los
adolescentes y a los chicos más pequeños
a expresar sus sentimientos y frustraciones,
una táctica útil tanto para ayudar a aplacar
la situación como para darles a los padres
la oportunidad de entender lo que está
provocando la mala conducta.
Programas como el Triple P Positive
Parenting Program de Informed Families
también son un recurso para los progenitores.
“Son lecciones de paternidad para
padres”, dice Alita Patterson, asistente
de Triple P y gerente de programa de Red
Ribbon Certified Schools. Mediante clases
en grupo y apoyo telefónico, los padres
aprenden a lidiar con rabietas, rebeldía
adolescente y dificultades para que los
niños hagan sus tareas.
El Departamento de Parques y
Recreación de Hialeah ofrece el programa
Early Prevention and Intervention Youth
and Internship Program (EPI) para niños
de 12 a 17 años que tienen problemas
de delincuencia juvenil o que necesitan
cumplir horas de servicio comunitario en
la escuela.
“A los niños que van por mal camino, esto
les da un impulso”, asegura su supervisor,
William Sánchez. A los participantes se
les asigna trabajar en un parque. Las
excursiones de campo están diseñadas para
Hialeah Early Prevention and Intervention Youth

Chwazi Pi Bon Kan pou
Sezon Ete a
Eske wap cheche yon kan pou timoun ki edikatif ak amizan?
Nap ba ou tip pou ede’w deside.
K
òm paran k ap patisipe, ou konnen aprantisaj pitit ou a pa
dwe sispann lè sezon ete a koumanse. Pitit ou etidye anpil
pandan lane eskolè a, kidonk li enpòtan pou pwogrè pitit ou
a pa “glise desann” pandan mwa ete yo. Epi kòm li travay di, sa nou
vle wè ki rive, se yon kalite aprantisaj ki pa menm avèk jan pitit ou
aprann pandan lane eskolè a, ki melanje entèaktivite, amizman, ak
aktivite ki fè timoun lan fè pwogrè. Pi bon kote pou w jwenn pwogram pou sa, se nan yon bon
kalite kan ete, tankou plizyè chwa ou ka jwenn nan pwogram The
Children’s Trust finanse yo. Kan bon kalite yo ofri yon anviwonnman
san danje ki ankouraje pitit ou a, ki veye pou kapasite l nan lekti - ki
fondamantal pou pwogrè akademik li - prezève oubyen vin pi bon. YMCA, ki se youn nan plizyè òganizasyon The Children’s fund
finanse pou kan ete, ofri yon modèl entèaktivite, angajman, ak
mouvman pou timoun ki pase tout jounen an nan kan.
“Nan YMCA, konsepyon nou pou sezon ete a se naje, espò, ak
jwèt,” dapre Brian Sheafer, vis prezidan Sèvis nan Lekòl dapre Laj
nan YMCA Miami. “Pou konpozan akademik la, nou pran menm
apwòch nou pran pou pwogram apre lekòl, men nou mete plis
amizman ladan. Kan ete bay yon chans pou angaje timoun yo deyò
lekòl la, kote aprantisaj tradisyonnèl la fèt.”
Li di tou: “Kan ete fèt pou plezi. Nou kapab ale vizite kote nou
pa ka ale pandan lane eskolè a. Nou chwazi yon ekilib ant vizit pou
anmizman - kote gen plezi sèlman - avèk vizit ki gen plezi ak enterè
akademik ladan yo, tankou vizit nan jaden zowolojik.”
Kòm gen limitasyon nan kantite plas ak nan bous pou kan yo
anpil fwa, li enpòtan pou w koumanse chèche depi bonè, epi pou w
gade nan pami plizyè chwa ou ka fè pou kan ete, pou fanmi w. Nou
sèten ou pral gade ki kote kan an ap fèt, ak ki kalite aktivite yo ofri.
Gen kan kote yo konsantre plis sou enterè espesyal - tankou lanati,
teyat, dans, espò, naje, teknoloji, ak lòt bagay - sa ki yon mwayen
ideyal pou pitit ou a gade kisa ki enterese l, oubyen pou li fè pwogrè
nan yon talan li genyen.
Pa egzanp, nan Florida Film Institute yo ofri elèv klas segondè yo
yon chans pou konsantre sou aspè pratik nan pwodiksyon sinema,
sa ki vle di ekri senaryo, sinematografi, ekleraj, son, anrejistreman,
pwodiksyon, koreksyon, jwe wòl, epi mizk. Se pwofesyonnèl lokal
nan sinema ki enstriktè elèv sa yo.
Dapre direktè egzekitif Stephanie Marino, “Kan yo tèlman
diferan. Timoun yo soti nan plizyè kote, epi lè yo fenk koumanse,
youn pa konn lòt. Men lè kan an fini, yo gen tan zanmi - sa aprann
Vizite nou sou entènèt la nan thechildrenstrust.org
travay ann ekip, fè konneksyon, epi gade nouvo lide.” Pran konsèy
sou kan yo nan men zanmi, fanmi, ak vwazinaj ou ki te deja enskri
pitit yo nan pwogram konsa. Rele kan ki ka enterese w yo si w gen
nenpòt kesyon, epi ale nan kote a pèsonnèlman si sa posib. Pèsonnèl nan kan yo dwe resevwa w avèk koutwazi ak respè. Sou
kesyon lang ak kilti, yo dwe montre karakteristik fanmi y ap sèvi yo.
Anplwaye yo dwe aji byen youn ak lòt, epi yo dwe montre aklè yo vle
ankouraje tandans natirèl timoun lan pou inovasyon ak kiryozite l. Tout kan yo dwe satisfè direktiv akseptab pou sipèvizyon yo.
Gwo kan yo ka resevwa plizyè santèn timoun, men pwopòsyon
rezonnab pèsonnèl ki la pou travay ak timoun yo ap fè w konnen
pitit ou a pral fè yon eksperyans anrichisan ak pozitif. Pou timoun
ki ant laj 6 ak 10 an, dwe genyen omwen 1 moun majè pou chak
10 timoun. Pou timoun ki depase laj 11 an, kapab genyen 1 moun
majè pou chak 15 timoun. Sèlman, lè timoun yo toupre yon dlo, yo
dwe genyen plis sipèvizyon.
Gade enstalasyon ki nan kan an. Èske kote a san danje, èske li
byen klere, epi li ase gran pou timoun yo alèz nan aktivite y ap fè?
Èske gen ase espas deyò? Ase lonbraj? Gade si pa gen anyen ki ka
poze yon danje, ni andedan, ni deyò. Mande ki kalite sipèvizyon
k ap genyen nan lakou kote timoun yo jwe, ak sipèvizyon pou
jwèt fizik yo. Èske y ap pèmèt yo fè aktivite nan dlo? Chèche
konnen si pèsonnèl sipèvizyon an konn fè CPR (Reyanimasyon
kadyopilmonè), epi si monitè natasyon yo sètifye.
Si pitit ou a gen yon andikap, fè kan an konnen sa pi bonè ou
kapab; pifò nan kan yo ap fè tout posib yo, pou fè aranjman pou
pitit ou a. Mande si l ap posib pou pitit ou a fè aktivite avèk lòt
timoun ki gen andikap tou, ak si l ap posib pou w antre an relasyon
avèk lòt fanmi. Sekirite fèt pou li pi gwo priyorite nan nenpòt
pwogram. Pèsonnèl sant lan dwe toujou veye lè timoun yo rive
nan kan an, lè yo prale lakay yo, ak ki moun ki vin chèche yo. Pitit
ou a pral pase omwen yon pati nan jounen yo deyò, sa ki deja
reprezante yon danje. Manje ki bon pou sante, anpil dlo, ak bon jan
bweson (ki pa gen anpil sik, epi ki san kabonat!) ap itil pou anpeche
pitit ou a santi feblès. Mande ki lè yo sèvi manje ak bweson, ak kisa
yo sèvi timoun yo.
Pou jwenn “pi bon” kan pou fanmi w, koumanse chèche depi nan
bonnè, epi reflechi sou bidjè w, sou kote ou rete a, ak sou enterè
timoun lan. Chèche espesyalman yon kan ki gen plis “P-L-E-Z-I”
nan aprantisaj, pou anpeche edikasyon pitit ou a “glise desann”
nan edikasyon li pandan Sezon Ete sa a. Pou jwenn plis ransèyman sou pwogram yo genyen nan Miami-Dade County, rele 211.

fanmi yo, sa kapab mande sèlman pou
rakonte yon bagay enteresan ou ka sonje,
lè nou chita ansanm pou manje bò yon

è w ap aprann timoun istwa fanmi yo,
se yon bon mwayen pou konnekte avèk
yo – epi lè yo aprann kilti yo nan mizik,
nan manje, nan istwa, oubyen menm nan
pòtre, sa ba yo yon sans idantite ki pi fò.
Mwa nan sezon ete, ki pa gen presyon pou
pare ak abiye pou lekòl ak pou aktivite apre
lekòl yo, bay timoun ak jenn moun yon bon
opòtinite pou analize pase yo, kit se istwa
pèsonnèl kit se istwa kiltirèl yo, lè yo angaje
nan yon pwojè.
“Lè timoun analize pase yo, sa fè yo
apresye pi byen fanmi yo, lit fanmi yo te
mennen, viktwa yo te reyalize, ak kote yo
rive kounye a”, dapre Paul George, Ph.D.,
ki se yon istoryen ak pwofesè istwa nan

se la ki te kay travayè Nwa ak Seminòl ki te
ede bati ray tren pou Henry Flager la.
Dapre Dorothy Jenkins Fields, Ph.D., ki
se fondatris ak achivis nan Black Archives
History ak nan Research Foundation of
South Florida, “Lè timoun konn istwa
zansèt yo, sa ede yo konprann pi byen ki
moun yo ye, ak kisa yo ka fè”. Anvan lontan,
li pral posib pou fè vizit vityèl sou sit
entènèt fondasyon an.
Menm si anpil timoun nan Sid Florid
kapab aprann fanmi yo te soti nan lòt peyi,
li kapab pa posib pou yo ale nan peyi sa yo
pou rezon politik oubyen rezon ekonomik.
Paran yo toujou ka montre timoun yo eritaj
kilti a, lè yo kuit yon bon manje peyi kote yo
soti a, oubyen mennen timoun yo nan yon
restoran ki espesyalize nan fè manje peyi a.
Nan pami manje ou ka jwenn nan zòn lan,
genyen depi manje ayisyen ak latino, pou
rive sou manje azyatik ak ewopeyen.
Moun k ap okipe timoun yo ak moun nan
fanmi an ki pi gran kapab rakonte istwa sou
lè yo te timoun, oubyen istwa yo renmen
rakonte nan fanmi an, oubyen istwa fòlklò
ki nan kilti yo - tout sa ki antre nan istwa
oral ki pase nan jenerasyon yo.
Ekspè yo dakò pou di tradisyon sa yo
kapab ede timoun yo aprann rakonte
istwa fasil, oubyen fasilite yo nan fè lekti,
nan pale, ak nan ekri. Se yon konpetans
enpòtan pou timoun ki pa gen angle kòm
lang manman yo. Lè ou plannifye yon
pwojè ki gen anmizman pou fanmi an, sa
kapab ede redui sa yo rele “pèdi nan sa
yo te aprann lekòl, nan sezon ete” a, ki
se tandans pou yon elèv pèdi nan sa li te
aprann, pandan sezon ete a lè li pa ale lekòl.
Lè w ankouraje timoun yo li ak rakonte
istwa fanmi an, ou ede yo tou nan kapasite
pou travay ak konprann. Se yon inisyativ
enpòtan pou The Children’s Trust, pou fè
elèv twazyèm ane yo fè lekti nan nivo klas
yo, paske inisyativ sa a ede kanpay Read to
Learn nan tout peyi a. Men yon lòt avantaj
ankò pwojè istwa yon fanmi kapab genyen
nan edikasyon: Sa bay jenn moun yon
bagay pou yo ekri sou li. Gen anpil lekòl
ki konn mande elèv yo fè pwojè tankou
jounalis pandan sezon ete a; se konsa istwa
sou fanmi ak vizit nan kote ki enteresan
nan zòn lan kapab bay anpil matyè pou
devwa ete sa yo.
Lè w pale ak timoun sou kote yo soti,
sa kapab ba yo tou fyète ak ankouraje yo,
epesyalman si oumenm oswa zansèt ou te
rezoud pwoblèm difisil, dapre sa Jenkins
Fields esplike.
Menm si li enpòtan pou fè istwa yo
koresponn avèk laj timoun lan, paran yo pa
dwe jennen pou yo rakonte istwa sou sijè
ki konplike oubyen difisil. Yon kalite istwa
ki transmèt mesaj ak valè enpòtan, se istwa
ki montre egzanp moun ki rezoud obstak
avèk pèseverans yo, oubyen ki te derape
nan lamizè.
Jenkins Fields konseye: “Di verite.
Aprann timoun yo yon bagay ki montre jan
ou te goumen ak pwoblèm yo, ak jan ou te
rive rezoud yo yon jan ki pozitif.”
Entèvyou ak yon Moun ki Gen Plis Laj (pou timoun):
Lè timoun pale ak moun ki gen plis laj, sa ede
yo aprann leson enpòtan sou eritaj yo ak sou
istwa fanmi yo. Men kèk fraz pou koumanse yon
entèvyou, pou derape konvèsasyon an.
• Ki kote ou moun?
• Depi konbyen tan ou isit?
• Pou kisa papa ak manman w te vini isit la; pou ki rezon nou vini?
• Kijan Miami, oswa vil kote ou te fèt la, te ye lè ou te gen laj mwen?
• Lè ou te gen laj mwen, kisa ki te diferan nan lekòl, nan lakay ou, ak nan legliz ou?
• Kisa ou te konn fè kòm anmizman, lè ou
te timoun?
• Ki jwèt, ki manje, ak ki mizik ou te pi renmen?
Konsèy pou entèvyou:
• Mande moun ou pral fè entèvyou avèk li a yon
randevou davans, epi sonje ale nan randevou a!
• Rezève ant 45 minit ak 1 èdtan pou entèvyou a.
• Kenbe kesyon yo kout ak dirèk.
• Si moun lan dakò, pran nòt oswa fè yon videyo
oubyen yon anrejistreman odyo.
• Pa koupe lapawòl moun lan! Kite paran an, oswa granparan an, oswa lòt moun ki nan fanmi an pale.

npil paran gen pwoblèm pou jwenn kote pou pitit yo anmize
lè lekòl fèmen. Men avèk sware sinema bò pisin, pwogram pou
ale jwe ak bèt, epi lòt pwogram ankò, gen yon pakèt opsyon
lokal pou anmize pandan sezon ete a.
YMCA nan Rejyon Miami a òganize anmizman tankou klas pou
fanmi fè egzèsis, epi mache pou achte nan men fèmye.
“Yon fanmi ka pwomennen avèk timoun li, pou yo fè aktivite
an fanmi – tankou jwe baskètbòl, fè kilti fizik, epi naje”, dapre
Brian Sheafer, vis prezidan Sèvis nan Lekòl dapre Laj nan YMCA
Miami. Aktivite yo varye nan tout sant YMCA pou fanmi yo, ki nan
Homestead, nan Sid Miami-Dade, nan Allapattah, ak nan katye
North Pointe la (Pwent Nò), ki nan Nòwès Miami-Dade.
Nan YMCA, ki resevwa finansman The Children’s Trust, yo
òganize kan ete sou teren plizyè lekòl. Anplis espò rekreyasyon
ak vizit eskolè, kan an genyen yon pwogram akademik ki rekrite
pwofesè sètifye pou ede timoun yo aprann li pi byen, epi aprann
sou kesyon nitrisyon ak sante yo. Paran ki kalifye kapab enskri nan
yon pwogram ki bay bous pou timoun.
Sant Betty T. Ferguson nan Miami Gardens lan, ki gen kòm
direktè Quentin Pough ki rele sant lan “Taj Majal”, ofri plizyè
opsyon pou timoun enskri ansanm ak fanmi yo. Sant kominotè yo
gen teren baskètbòl ni anndan ni deyò, ak yon pisin enteryè ki gen
yon gliswa pou timoun. Yo ofri piblik la yon laboratwa enfòmatik
ak yon zòn atletik kote pou moun kouri. Timoun yo kapab aprann
danse balè oswa klakèt, jwe sou batri tanbou, ak fè espò masyal.
Timoun ki gen dispozisyon kreyatif yo kapab ale tou nan Sant
Kiltirèl Little Haiti a, ki bay leson pou aprann fè travay atis. Se nan
sant sa a tou w ap jwenn Camp Discovery – ki se yon kan ete gratis
pou aprann fè travay atis.
Nan South Dade, fanmi yo pral kapab vizite The Little Farm
pandan jou wikenn yo, kote yo pral kapab jwe ak bèt yo, ak wè
lapen, zwa, ti kochon, ak lòt bèt ankò. Avèk $10 ou peye pou antre
a, ou ka fè timoun yo monte sou do ti cheval toutotan sa fè yo plezi,
epi y ap kapab tire lèt kabrit, ak bay kabrit yo manje. Nan pak lokal
yo, gen anpil bèl bagay natirèl tou, tankou Arch Creek Park MiamiDade la nan North Miami Beach, ki genyen yon jaden papiyon ak
yon ansyen pon an wòch tribi natif-natal yo te konn sèvi.
Èske w ap chèche kote pou plonje nan dlo kòm anmizman?
Grapeland Water Park, ki nan Vil Miami, genyen gliswa rapid,
ansanm ak rivyè trankil ak pisin. Ou ka menm rete chita sou yon
chanm kawotchou nan dlo a pou gade sinema nan Vandredi pou
Fanmi, ki se dènye vandredi nan mwa a.
imoun konn aji mal pou teste limit
granmoun, oubyen paske yo gen
fristrasyon, oubyen pou yo jwenn
atansyon. Sekrè pou kontwole timoun k ap
aji mal? Ba yo egzanp konpòtman pozitif.
“Timoun ap reponn nan menm jan ou aji
avèk yo, kit ou montre kòlè, kit ou montre
afeksyon, swivan sa ou montre pi plis la”,
dapre esplikasyon doktè Peter A. Gorski, ki
se responsab an chèf pou The Children’s
Trust ak pwofesè pou sante piblik, pedyatri,
ak sikyatri nan Inivèsite South Florida. “Si
pifò atansyon yo resevwa, se lè y ap fè kòlè
ak rele, se sa yo pral kontinye fè.”
Paran yo ka santi yo nan yon pozisyon
difisil, lè yo kontre avèk rebelyon adolesan
oswa kriz kòlè timoun ap fè. Men sèlman,
menm si yon paran gen fristrasyon, li pa
janm dwe enpoze yon disiplin fizik, paske sa
kapab fè yon timoun santi li pa gen anpil valè,
epi sa kapab montre timoun lan fè vyolans.
“Yo menm tou, yo pral koumanse bay
kout pye, goumen, ak rele si se konsa ou
aprann yo pou yo aji ak moun”, dapre
avètisman Gorski bay.
Paran yo dwe fè konnen davans, nan yon
jan ki klè, kisa yo vle timoun lan fè – epi ki
konsekans sa kapab genyen si timoun lan
aji mal, dapre konsèy yon sikològ elèv ki
rele Lani Kaskel, Ph. D., ki se yon terapis ki
gen lisans pou zafè maryaj ak fanmi.
Li di konsa: “Lè w rele tout tan ak fè kòlè
sou timoun, yo vin abitye tande sa epi sa pa
aji sou yo ankò”.
Kaskel ensiste pou fè konprann konsekans
yo enpòtan. Si w te bay yon adolesan limit sou
tan li ka sèvi ak telefòn selilè, epi li depase limit
la, ou ka fè l travay nan kay la pou peye pou
minit anplis li pase nan telefòn lan. Paran yon
timoun piti pa dwe machande avèk li, men
li ka bay timoun lan yon pinisyon pou li pa
jwe, pandan yon tan ki egal laj timoun lan; pa
egzanp, 4 minit pou yon timoun 4ran.
Kaskel di paran an dwe pale san fè kòlè
ak timoun lan apre tan pinisyon an, sou sa
ki pase a.
Konsèy li bay: “Ou dwe toujou bay yon
timoun yon chans pou li pa soti wont; lè
konsa, timoun lan ap genyen pou li mande
eskiz sensèman, oubyen pou li fè yon bagay
pou korije erè a.”
Lè w pote atansyon timoun lan sou yon
lòt bagay, sa kapab ede soulaje lapenn li. Si
w pèmèt yon timoun fè kèk erè, sa kapab
ede l aprann tou, espesyalman si se yon
adolesan ki prèske rive nan laj gran moun.
“Pa egzanp, si w fè twòp presyon sou li
pou devwa lekòl li, sa kapab lakòz yon timoun
antre nan rezistans pasif”, dapre Kaskel.
Paran yo dwe ankouraje ni adolesan ni
timoun pi piti yo fè konnen santiman ak
fristrasyon yo – paske se yon mwayen itil ni
pou soulaje tansyon, ni pou bay paran yo
yon chans pou konprann kisa ki lakòz yon
timoun aji mal.
Pwogran tankou “Informed Families’ Triple
P Positive Parenting Program” (Pwogram Twa
P Pozitif pou Paran nan Fanmi ki Enfòme) se
yon bon resous pou paran tou.
“Se yon pwogram ki aprann paran elve
pitit yo”, dapre Alita Patterson, asistan nan
pwogram Triple P a, epi direktè pwogram
Red Ribbon Certified Schools (Lekòl ki
Sètifye pou Riban Wouj). Avèk klas an
gwoup ak sipò nan telefòn, paran yo aprann
kouman pou yo aji ak timoun k ap fè kòlè,
timoun ki bay pwoblèm pou fè devwa lekòl
yo, oubyen adolesan ki an rebelyon.
Hialeah’s Parks ak Depatman
Rekreyasyon an òganize yon pwogram ki
rele “Early Prevention and Intervention
Youth and Internship Program (EPI)”
pou timoun ki gen ant 12 ak 17 an, ki
komèt enfraksyon ki pa grav, oubyen ki
bezwen pase tan nan sèvis kominotè
pou lekòl yo.
Dapre sipèvizè a, William Sanchez,
“Si yon timoun ap pran move chimen,
pwogram sa a ap ba li asistans”. Yo mete
patisipan yo travay nan yon pak. Yo fè
sòti eskolè ki òganize pou montre yo aji
pi byen, oswa pou rekonpanse chanjman

pozitif; yo mennen yo vizite prizon nan
zòn lan ak sant reyabilitasyon, yo mennen
yo nan Miami Heat, epi yo mennen yo nan
inivèsite pou pale avèk yo sou sa ki pral
enterese yo aprann nan inivèsite.
Sa ki pi enpòtan, se pou paran yo fè yon
efò pou rekonnèt – ak pou rekonpase –
bon konpòtman.
Gorski konseye: “Veye lè timoun yo aji
byen. Lè sa a, pase yon moman avèk yo, fè
yo konpliman, epi pale avèk yo.”
