Happy Summer Everyone! I apologize for taking so long to post a new training resource. Those of you who I see often know that the last two months have been a bit hectic for me. But, life should be getting back to normal here soon, so I will be updating the blog with more regularity. I stumbled across this article on my Facebook feed and loved it. Despite the fact that it’s discussing discipline in school, it can be applied to discipline at home so easily. The fact of the matter is, when kids react with anger, aggression and sometimes even violence to something, there is something deeper going on. When we respond to that escalation with an escalation of our own, there’s no turning back, and no way that our kiddos can learn a better way of doing things. The way this alternative school has chosen to approach discipline has stunning results, and is based in the science of toxic stress and the brain (something we talk about ALL the time). Give it a read, and let me know what you think of how this school is using a new approach to affect behavior!
