Tym was first introduced to Conscious Discipline through the Frog Street Curriculum. His center was seeking guidance with aggression and challenging behaviors, and the staff decided to attend a Summer Institute. According to Tym, they never looked back. Conscious Discipline has completely transformed the culture at Tym’s childcare programs. It has reduced staff turnover, boosted enrollment to capacity, and changed Tym and most of his staff as humans.
