Conscious Discipline® is a social-emotional intelligence program developed by award-winning author Dr. Becky Bailey. It empowers parents and teachers to draw from within to become proactive instead of reactive in disciplining movements.

This internationally-recognized program is based on current brain research, child development information, and developmentally appropriates practices. It is designated to successfully change adults’ habits in order to change the lives of children.

  Conscious Discipline © empowers teachers with the 7 Powers for Self-control:
  1. Perception 5. Love
  2. Unity 6. Acceptance
  3. Attention 7. Intention
  4. Free Will  
  These powers allow teachers to:

  • Draw from within themselves to become proactive instead of reactive in conflict.
  • Stay in control of themselves and in charge of children.
  • Consciously increase emotional intelligence of teachers, child caregivers & parents.
  • Self-control: the ability to reach out and empathize with others, and embrace conflict as a teaching experience.
