Discipline With Purpose
Parents and educators can use a common framework as they share the goal of helping children to grow-up to become self-directed adults. There are 15 skills that are used as a framework for making decisions about a person’s growth in self-discipline. This frame-work is the heart of the Discipline With Purpose program.
This program has been successfully in place at OLPH School for over 20 years and is based on teaching skills that develop students into self-disciplined individuals.
The skills are grouped into three categories. While children of all ages can be taught something about all fifteen skills, during some phases of a child’s development it is best to focus on certain skills.
