Discipline and reprimands


What does everyone do to reprimand cadets on squadron should they fail to maintain good discipline?


Lock them in the cupboard


Well there’s a broad range of options depending on the circumstances, but once a pattern of behaviour becomes clear it’s a quick chat to explain to that cadet what the problem behaviour is, find out if there’s a root cause and if there’s any help to be given or changes/allowances to be made to account for that, and explain how the behaviour affects them and those around them.

There may or may not be a baseball bat visibly stored in the background while this happens.


Hmmmm perhaps not the most conventional technique of keeping good discipline


Didn’t work for that pesky Potter kid.


Depends on how your Squadron is run. Where I’m at it starts with a chat from a senior cadet NCO and will escalate to SWO and beyond depending on the issue. The higher up the food chain the more “personal” the chat becomes in case there is an underlying reason etc. The cadet in question needs to understand what the Squadron’s expectation is and why what they are doing is a problem.
