We have been using Positive Discipline in schools and using the same process to build the skills to support restorative circles /class meetings. It is the regular use of circles and group problem solving that has made such a huge impact on families and classrooms. The paradigm shift away from punishments and rewards takes time and practice - and the results are powerful. On one school visit when visitors asked the 5th graders what was different about their school, a student replied, "Here we give each other grace. We know we make mistakes and we give each other a second chance."
That is the kind of community in which everyone can learn - and resilience flourishes.
