The 12 Principles of Re-Education

This building wide behavioral health support is based on Nicholas Hobbs’ Re-Education philosophy and the 12 Principle of Re-Education.

This is a unique opportunity for children to participate in a positive behavior support model.

The use of these principles has been proven to encourage positive change.

  1. Life is to be lived now.
  2. Trust between child and adult is essential.
  3. Competence makes a difference.
  4. Time is an ally.
  5. Self-control can be taught.
  6. The cognitive competence of children and adolescents can be considerably enhanced.
  7. Feelings should be nurtured and shared.
  8. The group is very important to young people.
  9. Ceremony and ritual give order, stability, and confidence.
  10. The body is the armature of the self.
  11. Communities are important for children and students.
  12. In growing up, a child should know some joy in each day.
