Take Aways:

  1. Public humiliations often provoke a public retaliation. When a public 'putdown' occurs, intervene immediately to prevent it from escalating into violence!
  2. Be willing to agree that the student was 'wronged' but be even quicker to remind him or her that they are now responsible for how he or she responds!

  3. Write this down, have your students memorize this motto, and then help them live it..."I am responsible for my actions and my response to the actions of others."

  4. The need for discipline would plummet if students would only choose the right response.

How to Relate this to Kids:

Every student has heard many times, "You're responsible for your actions." What they do not hear often enough is that they are also, "Responsible for their response to the actions of others."

 

Any time you discipline, mentor, or counsel students remind them that being responsible comes in two parts--1) My actions towards others and 2) my response to the actions of others.

 

"I am responsible for my actions and my response to the actions of others."
