Do you know that in several schools, meditation is used to replace detention/suspension to discipline kids and avoid them from acting up? Cool isn’t it?
Imagine you got a call from the principal or a counselor telling you that your kid is in detention again or he/she is showing bad behavior which leads to his/her suspension. It’s heartbreaking for a parent to know that you’re working hard to pay for your child’s education and yet what the kids learn are fighting, staring at the walls in detention rooms and unruly behavior. Annoying isn’t it?
That’s why according to an article posted in https://www.upworthy.com, Robert W. Coleman Elementary School decided to replace detention with meditation and the results are very surprising! Instead of punishing disruptive kids or sending them to the principal’s office, they offer Mindfulness programs instead.
According to several schools that use programs like these, they said suspension rates dropped and attendance increased as well. Kids learn to meditate which becomes much deeper and more meaningful for the students, especially given what the statistics say about the challenges they face on a daily basis. They can also bring what they learn at home, meditate for 5 minutes and not have to worry about what’s going on outside their bedroom door if need be.
ChiBall envisions to help everyone – adults and child alike to benefit from the holistic approach to meditation. That’s why we also offer “Children in Balance” so that parents can have access to it online and teach children how to properly use these for their kids’ health and overall well being.
