Training for Parents
Discipline – Restorative Practices
Restorative Justice is based on Restorative Practices (RP) values and ideas. There are many tools that help to repair the harm done and restore relationships when an offence occurs. It acts as an alternative to punitive punishment and gives schools more options to deal with students adopting a “Teachable Moment” concept while building the Social Emotional Competencies (SEL) of the pupils. Schools that have adopted RP have realised that the deterrent element in doing discipline is not lost. Asking the pupils to fix the harm done (restitution, accountability and resolution) in a comprehensive way acts as a more effective deterrent that pupils, parents and society can accept and understand.

RP schools will find this training useful to bring parents on board to the ‘new way of doing things’. Schools have also found this training useful as a parent talk on managing their children.
