Restorative Justice – A True Alternative to Conventional Discipline
In another piece released from the mindshift training platform, the methods used to employ restorative justice strategies will be seen as an alternative method of shaping an individual’s attitude toward school disciplinary measures.
1 cup pecan halves
1/2 cup warm water
2 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer over medium heat. After adding a little water and continuing to cook, take out the pan from the heat and allow it to cool down. Add the pecan halves to the hot milk mixture. Allow to cool completely. Then, add the chocolate morsels. Place in a sealable container and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, let the almond milk mixture come to room temperature and once it is done, put a clear black screen on the back of the container. The idea is that the almond milk will show the whole container of warming treated pecans as well as the chocolate morsels.
In the afternoon, roll out a large piece of aluminum foil. One side of the foil should be folded up. Next, put the pecan halves into the bottom half of the foil. Place another piece of foil over the top and fold the bottom of the foil in to form a body to put the almond milk mixture in.
Place the finished item onto a cutting board and top with a small piece of greased, floured (preferably flour) board. At the top of the piece of plastic, use the plastic cutter to cut the animal into nine sections. For this part, make the trays of rabbits. Use any leftover, unwrapped almond milk mixture or melting chocolate morsels to fill each tray of rabbits.
Now that the small animals are in, put the food tray into the refrigerator. Allow the natural, summer sun to release heat onto the mixture until it is medium temperature. Then place the container in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Once the two-hour period has elapsed, gently stir the mixture.
After the mixture has cooled, pour the mixture into a container and place it in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden.
Once the mixture has hardened, heat a small frying pan over medium heat and add the mixture with a steady whisk. When the mixture bubbles, flip the mixture onto a towel. When the towel has been flipped over and it’s completely submerged in the peanut butter mixture, it will be ready to eat.
