Game: Pivot Play

Conscious Discipline asks us to transform our responses to challenging behaviors. This is a challenging and ongoing process, but Pivot Play provides a helpful practice opportunity. Start by reading a card with a standard (and ineffective) response to a child’s behavior. Then S.T.A.R., open your heart and wish well, pivot with your body, and rephrase the original comment using the Name, Verb, Paint format.
