Growing Steps’ forbids the use of any form of corporal punishment. We use Conscious Discipline. Conscious Discipline is a life-changing, research-based classroom management system and social-emotional learning program for early childhood and after- schools programs. It revolutionizes the classroom approach to social-emotional learning by addressing the adult’s skill set and internal states first, and then empowering the adult to teach and model these skills with children. Conscious Discipline is structured around the seven powers for self-control and the seven skills of basic discipline.
