At Robert W. Coleman School in Baltimore, instead of this kind of detention...
...kids enter a place called the Mindful Moment Room after school, and practice this...
Yup, that's right! As reported by Uproxx, instead of being punished with detention, students are kept after school and instructed to practice yoga, mindful meditation, and breathing exercises to help kids take control of their behavior, rather than being disciplined for misbehaving.
The program was introduced 2 years ago by a non-profit organization, known as the Holistic Life Foundation.
The meditation is calming, reduces anxiety and stress, and so far it has proven to improve student behavior.
Since then, the school hasn't had to suspend a single kid from school. WOW!
Sounds worth getting rid of the old school detention idea and starting to implement this into more schools. What do you think?
