Meditation not detention

It is encouraging that more schools are realizing what myriad research studies have shown for decades: that punishment does not work as way of building essential life skills such as how to manage stress and self regulate one’s emotions and behaviors. Brain science and ancient wisdom are combining in new and powerful ways as we realize that simple ways of turning within can help us deal with the often violent and chaotic world outside. I am proud to say that Oneness-Family Montessori School has been a pioneer in teaching students self-reflection skills for over 25 years. I urge educators across the country to look at model programs that are showing dramatic results and include them in their school programs. Our students will gain life long self-management skills and our schools will become safer and happier places to be.
