School replaces detention with meditation, and the results are spectacular

What if instead of time out, grounding and other forms of punishment, you meditated? What if kids were taught to get in touch with their emotions instead of getting reprimanded?

That's what Baltimore's Robert W. Coleman Elementary School is doing. Instead of having their students sit in cold detention rooms, kids sit in plush, relaxing pillows to learn about wellness and reflectiveness.

The rooms are open so students can re-center themselves, breathe and manage their stress.

The school, which also runs an afterschool meditation program, saw zero detentions in the past year. Other schools in the area have seen similar benefits of the program: Higher attendance rates and lower discipline problems to name a few.

We wish we had this when we were in school!
