Cougar Byte Podcast, Positive Discipline Doesn’t Quite Mean What You Think

Hosts: Syma Latif and Cathy Shin

Guests: Positive Discipline lead trainer, Cathy Kawakami, and our Head of Early Childhood & Elementary Education, Jane Murphy

Positive...Discipline? It doesn't sound like a social-emotional learning philosophy but it is --in this episode, our guests, Positive Discipline lead trainer Cathy Kawakami and our Head of Early Childhood & Elementary Education Jane Murphy sit down to talk about what Positive Discipline is (and what it isn't), why ACDS adopted it as their SEL curriculum, and how parents also play an integral role in supporting Positive Discipline outside of school.

"Curiosity is so important -- it's how you gain knowledge, and empathy for others." -- Jane Murphy

"You quickly notice that a lot of it is about understanding yourself better, becoming more self-aware, reflective of your part in a relationship, and understanding that at the base of it you are the only person you can change." -- Cathy Kawakami

In part two of this 3-part series, we continue our conversation with Dr. James Knight and his work with cultural humility. He reminds us that while fundamentally our questions remain constant, answers to questions change day-to-day; on our respective journeys toward cultural humility, it's critical that we not only continue to ask questions but also listen as replies evolve.
