What if everything we know about disciplining kids is wrong?
I read this great article in Mother Jones called “What if Everything you know about disciplining kids is wrong” about the CPS method (Collaborative and Proactive Solutions method) of dealing with problem children. <http://m.motherjones.com/politics/2015/05/schools-behavior-discipline-collaborative-proactive-solutions-ross-greene>
I’m wondering if there are any schools in DC or the area who are trying this method out. The results described in the article are fantastic. Basically, instead of punishing kids for acting out, the method advocates talking to them to get at the underlying root of the issue- so as to help teach them self control. When tested in juvenile justice programs, it has had a great impact lowering recidivism rates. Also has been successful in schools that have tried it. Would love to know if this is being tried out in our area!
