Kids are kids. They're still growing and learning, and they tend to make mistakes from time to time. But because we believe in ministering to the whole child, when these problems arise, our goal is to address the heart issue instead of simply managing the behavior. Our teachers and staff members offer loving correction, helping students to understand why they're acting a certain way and to see that there are other ways to express their feelings or frustrations. While there may still be disciplinary consequences for their actions, kids come to recognize why they messed up, to accept God's grace and forgiveness, and to learn a valuable lesson going forward. Moreover, it's a special blessing to watch teachers and parents partner together in this effort, each child surrounded and supported by a loving community that truly cares and wants to see him/her succeed.
