Traditionally, discipline might have been to manage misbehaviour by meting out consequences. However, often there is no recourse for wrongdoing, or students end up feeling resentful or guilty. The premise of Positive Discipline, however, is "connection before correction" i.e. in order to empower young people to shift their behaviour, we first form a relationship and then empower them to take responsibility for their actions in a respectful, kind and firm way.
