Conscious Discipline is comprised of seven powers and skills that support growth in adults first; children second. Skills and structures are designed to foster safety, connection, and self-regulation. Learn the skills to promote a culture of safety, strengthen connections between children and between adults and children, and teach emotional regulation so that children see themselves as capable and resilient problem solvers.
