Conscious Discipline is a transformational approach, starting with the adult first, in which the young person develops seven (7) skills with the goal of achieving self-regulation on the social-emotional terrain. The intention is that this adult then guides the young person to develop the same skills so that the young person can also learn to regulate themselves socially and emotionally. This trajectory entails a project that will be worked on in close cooperation with all the stakeholders concerned. We will work together to achieve a structure that will apply this methodology throughout the ministry and especially to the professionals of pre-school, regular and special basic education, and after-school care, who work with our children from 0 to 14 years.
To make the journey more sustainable and participatory, Secretary-General Ms. Susan Larmonie-van Heydoorn, on behalf of the Minister of ESKD, handed over the material symbolically to a representation of the various stakeholders who participated in the two days of the fair. Looking back on a successful week, we can be sure that the Conscientious Discipline Curaçao project had a positive outcome and that the participants committed to continue working with this methodology.
