Helping Children Succeed - Reading Together - Discipline and Incentives


"And it suggests that school-discipline programs might be more effective if they were to focus less on imposing punishment and more on creating a classroom environment in which students who lack self-regulatory capacities can find the tools and context they need to develop them."
(page 54, Kindle Edition)

"We know that when children experience toxic stress, especially when they are very young, it can disrupt their development in profound ways, compromising their immune system, their executive functions, and their mental health."
(page 19, Kindle Edition)
