This magazine contains all the articles we will be talking about during our PLC Wednesdays. Please read in advance since we only have time for the team discussion and reflection. Take advantage of these readings! Our PLC should learn and grow every week and reading and reflecting are key skills to accomplish that. Enjoy!
Conscious Discipline empowers us to be conscious of brain-body states in ourselves and children. It then provides us with the practical skills we need to manage our thoughts, feeling and actions. With this ability to self-regulate, we are then able to teach children to do the same. By doing this, we help children who are physically aggressive (survival state) or verbally aggressive (emotional state) become more integrated so they can learn and use problem-solving skills (executive state). When we understand the brain state model, we can clearly see the importance of building our homes, schools and businesses on the core principles of safety, connection and problem-solving.
