An active calming technique- Smile, Take a deep breath, And Relax! The behavior management program in our childcare is based on the philosophies and principles outlined in Conscious Discipline by Dr. Becky Bailey.
Conscious Discipline provides a comprehensive social-emotional program that is based on current brain research, child developmentally appropriate practices. All aspects of Conscious Discipline focus on creating a safe environment for children to learn and practice the skills needed for healthy social, emotional and academic development. Research shows Conscious Discipline decreases aggression, increases academic achievement and creates a positive environment for children.
Conscious Discipline defines discipline not as something you do to children, but something you develop within them. Conscious Discipline teaches new skills to the adult first and the child second, empowering you and the child. It teaches how to resolve conflict in a way that creates closer more loving relationships. Conscious Discipline empowers teachers with the Seven Powers of Self Control
The Seven Powers of Self Control
These powers allow teachers to draw from within themselves to become proactive instead of reactive during moments of conflict. Teachers stay in control of themselves and positively influence children.
