This video describes why this approach is called Peace Discipline.
This video looks at how parents and teachers should use their unequal power in discipline situations.
In this video we look at an experiment comparing the responses of children from a pre-school where
corporal punishment is used, and one where non-violent methods are used. Will the results show that
children who get physically punished are more obedient?
The word “discipline” is often used synonymously with the word “punishment”, but are they the same
thing? “Discipline”, with the same root word as “disciple”, suggests teaching or guidance, rather than
meting out a dose of pain.
Parents have a special ability to soothe their children and this safety and comfort is not something
that can easily be found elsewhere. If your discipline method means that your child stops feels safe
with you, it’s not worth it.
This video demonstrates how, if we want children to focus, pay attention and learn, we need to make sure
that they feel safe. A child who feels safe is more able to listen to you, so it makes NO sense to use
discipline methods which hurt or scare them.
This video looks at the key to effective discipline in the home and classroom: attunement. Attunement
helps children to feel safe with us, and is the building block of secure attachment. Discipline tools
should be used with attunement. From this perspective, non-violent discipline methods are not good or
bad in themselves, rather, they should be evaluated according to how well they fit with the needs and
signals of the child.
