Celebrate a Radical Conscious Discipline Success Story

The Playing Field is proud to host Kennedy Award winner, Donna Porter and her former student DJ Batiste. Their inspirational message will address the reasons that traditional models of discipline are failing our at-risk youth. DJ was a leader of a gang and had been expelled from every school he attended. His life was turned around when he encountered Mrs. Porter who was armed with the skills of Conscious Discipline.

After helping DJ and many other students transform their lives, Mrs. Porter was the recipient of the Kennedy Award for teaching.

Following their heartwarming and inspiring message, there will be four breakout sessions taught by Conscious Discipline Certified Instructors. These sessions will provide both parents and teachers with usable tools, practical strategies, and new insights on child behavior. This will be valuable information for anyone who wants to move past the traditional model of discipline towards reaching the hearts of children.
