As a parent of two young boys and an elementary school teacher, Amy Zolessi knows children. She understands the challenges of parenting first hand, and how Conscious Discipline® can help parents and teachers deal with those challenges. Conscious Discipline® is based on brain research with specific implications for teaching young children. Amy is a Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor, and implemented the program school-wide at a Central Florida Elementary School. She now works with parents, teachers and students on an individual basis to learn new skills and strategies that build strong relationships built on mutual respect. Amy has been a speaker at Conscious Discipline® Conferences, and she is also featured in the new book, “Creating the School Family”, written by Dr. Becky Bailey, the founder of Conscious Discipline®. Conscious Discipline® is a social-emotional program based on brain research. This program helps you understand the development of your child so that you can respond rather than react to situations. Within these situations, you will help your child develop lifelong healthy social and emotional skills.
