What it Takes to Shift to Restorative Discipline
Psychology Beat contributor Katrina Schwartz spoke about what it takes to Shift to Restorative Discipline.
Mathematics and science suggests that if you replace a dominant force with a non-dominant force, you will change behavior. The world that persists after people and creatures are given freedom to choose, experience, express, and understand the universal benefits of non-consensus strategies is one that helps maximize human strengths and limitations.
Schools are a prime example of one structure where dominant forces do more harm than good.
A traditional approach to the education of young people is based on cognition, and has been the educational regimen for nearly a century. And though research suggests that this approach was a tremendous leap in the development of children’s cognitive capacity and resiliency, schools continue to disseminate that approach while school discipline is used as a kind of “in-between” tactic to restrain children. That thinking is stuck in the throw-out-the-old-method mindset, not viewing schools as an opportunity to extend children’s capacities, and to enable their best, rather than worst, behavior in learning.
