School replaces detention with meditation

Detention

Instead of punishing disruptive kids or sending them to the principal’s office, this school has created the Mindful Moment Room which looks nothing like a detention room. It’s filled with lamps, decorations, and plush purple pillows. Misbehaving kids are encouraged to sit in the room and go through practices like breathing or meditation, helping them calm down. They’re also asked to talk about what happened and it’s getting great results. http://www.upworthy.com/this-school-replaced-detention-with-meditation-the-results-are-stunning?c=ufb1
