The Five Criteria for Positive Discipline

  1. Is kind and firm at the same time. (Respectful and encouraging) 
  2. Helps children feel a sense of belonging and significance. (Connection) 
  3. Is effective long-term. (Punishment works short term, but has negative long-term results.) 
  4. Teaches valuable social and life skills for good character. (Respect, concern for others, problem-solving, accountability, contribution, cooperation) 
  5. Invites children to discover how capable they are and to use their personal power in constructive ways.
