Restitution gives you strategies to encourage children to take responsibility for their actions & become self-disciplined.
It builds and strengthens the four "c's":
Critical thinking, Creativity, Collaboration and Communication
Restitution in Schools
Restitution is a philosophy of discipline that is based on intrinsic motivation. It is created by Diane Gossen and based on William Glasser’s Control theory principles. Restitution helps students to develop self -discipline and helps teachers to become better managers and mentors.
21st Century Skills
21st century skills comprise skills, abilities, and learning dispositions that have been identified as being required for success in 21st century society and workplaces by educators, business leaders, academics, and governmental agencies. By implementing Restitution in your class, you are also strengthening these skills in our youth.
Truth and Reconciliation
Restitution is a way of living that beautifully fits with the way Indigenous people raise their children. Much of what Diane Gossen created in restitution is rooted in indigenous practice. It is belief based not rule based and believes that mistakes are opportunities to learn and grow.
Restitution for Parents
Parenting has perhaps never been more challenging than it is today. We want to be supportive and nurturing of our children, but we also don’t want them to be spoiled and entitled. We want to be involved in their lives and have strong relationships, but we don’t want them to be dependent and become helicopter parents
