Parent Resources

Parents are our partners.  Restitution Self Discipline teaches parents about a child's basic needs.  It also presents to them the Five Positions of Control: Punisher, Guilter, Buddy, Monitor, Manager and helps them guide their children to be self managers.  Youth who learn restitution will be a pleasure to live with.  Links to articles written by Diane Gossen that will provide an introduction to Restitution Self Discipline are below:

Diane Gossen presented to a sell out crowd of over 600 parents on February 2, 2009 for the Edina Parent Communication Network.
