I really like this strategy for behavior management and discipline! It's a less harsh form of time out if your child, like mine has major tantrums
This was posted as Classroom Management, but with a few changes it would also work for my time-out spot.
Great Classroom management idea for students to think about what they did wrong and how they could work on it.
Classroom Management. A little editing and great time out moment at home with a thinking journal.
Sydney Schafer 10/5/15 - I think this is a great way for students to get the opportunity to cool-down. A lot of the time when negative classroom behavior takes place, it is dealt with, but the students never really get the time to think about what happened or get the chance to calm down. I love the step that allows them to draw a picture about what they will do better next time. Not only are they calming down, but they are thinking of a way to better themselves for next time.

Children and trauma - This is a really good article. I think I will give it to foster parents I work with to help explain trauma symptoms better.
This is directed towards adopted/foster children but I feel like it applies to just about any hurting child.
Good article and books--even though the focus mainly on adopted/foster children, it still gives great insight on helping any kid who is hurting.

The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi When Unhei moves from Korea to the United States, she is a little embarrassed by her name so she tells her new classmates that she doesn’t have one. They all help to choose a new one for her by putting choices into a jar but in the end, Unhei decides that her Korean name is just perfect. This is the perfect book for anyone with an “ethic first or middle name” that they are a little embarrassed about. [picture book, ages 5-9]
