Conscious Discipline is a comprehensive classroom management program and social-emotional curriculum developed by Dr. Becky Bailey. Conscious Discipline is designed to empower teachers to notice and foster their own emotional intelligence so they can better guide and facilitate their children’s. Conscious Discipline is rooted in current brain, heart, and child development research. It’s about relationship-based teaching and building classroom community. The ultimate goal is connecting and creating a safe and caring environment for learning, growing and building our school family.
Since children are at different developmental levels, the following expectations are developmentally appropriate for each individual child.
- Infants and young toddlers have very little control over the things that they want or do.
- Older Toddlers are beginning to explore their independence, learn how to control their behavior, how to share, and how to get along with others.
- Preschoolers often test limits and are learning the consequences of their behavior.
- School-age children often test limits and will learn the consequences of the actions and behaviors.
