Adults use the 10 Steps to Positive Discipline/ Conscious Discipline to guide children without resorting to less-than-optimal behavior themselves. Positive discipline reflects the change in thinking from trying to control others with manipulative strategies to learning how to maintain self-control in order to teach children self-discipline. Adults maintain self-control and model confidence while teaching children the skills of cooperation and caring rather than fear and power over others. Conscious discipline provides adults with tools to create a safe, connected, and problem-solving environment.
