Karen Quail will give some more input on non-violent discipline tools. She will look at further skills, and share what research can tell us about use of tools such as time-out and reward. For example: How long should a time-out be? What venue is best? Is it helpful to give a warning first? When is it not constructive to use rewards? This will be followed by time for questions and discussion.
For those interested, more information is available on the Peace Discipline website and YouTube channel.
