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.
Easy to Love, Difficult to Discipline is the core Conscious Discipline publication for parents. Conscious Discipline is designed for parents who are facing the overwhelming challenges of raising children today. Conscious Discipline is unique from other ways of guidance because it:
Defines discipline not as something you do to children, but something you develop within them.
Teaches new skills to the adult first, and the children second, empowering you to become the mindful parent you want to be.
I’ll write a post summarizing the book at a later date, when I finish reading it.
