Caught in the cycle of ever-increasing punishments to motivate your children? Tired of bribing your children to behave? Want your children to be self-motivated? Learn why children behave, how to set them up for success, & learn concrete tools for tough situations. Learn to encourage children to take responsibility for their actions & be self-disciplined!
Restitution is a philosophy created by Diane Gossen, based on the work of William Glasser’s Control Theory and the principles of Indigenous Restorative Justice. It provides people hands-on skills to deal with difficult behaviour. Instead of rewards and punishment, Restitution focuses on helping kids become the person they want to be. Drawing from current research on the brain functioning, Restitution recognizes that for true learning to occur, the process that children must engage in is an internal one. Restitution teaches youth self-discipline and skills needed to promote independence, critical thinking, and acceptance of personal responsibility for one’s actions.
