Conscious Discipline

Conscious Discipline is a whole-school solution for social-emotional learning, discipline and self-regulation. We use Conscious Discipline at Greens Prairie to help teach our students how to integrate social-emotional learning and discipline.

Conscious Discipline uses 7 skills to transform everyday discipline issues into teachable moments. These moments are our opportunity to teach children the social-emotional and communication skills necessary to manage themselves, resolve conflict and develop pro-social behaviors. The 7 skills are:

1.   Composure

2.   Encouragement

3.   Assertiveness

4.   Choices

5.   Empathy

6.   Positive Intent

7.   Consequences

Conscious Discipline was developed by Dr. Becky Bailey. Her company is dedicated to creating positive environments for children, families, schools and businesses. From Dr. Bailey’s website:

“Conscious Discipline is a longtime leader in integrating classroom management and social-emotional learning. It utilizes everyday events rather than an external curriculum, and addresses the adult's emotional intelligence as well as the child's. Conscious Discipline empowers adults to consciously respond to daily conflict, transforming it into an opportunity to teach critical life skills to children. With Conscious Discipline, your teachers, your students and your entire school culture will become a safe haven of cooperation, constructive problem solving and academic success.
