Working from the belief that "Self-discipline is far better than the externally imposed kind" a report was released last week about the impact Catholic Schools have on self-discipline. The findings suggest three key takeaways.
  • Schools that value and focus on self-discipline will likely do a better job of fostering it in children. 
  • Other schools have something to learn from Catholics schools when it comes to fostering self-discipline. 
  • We should not underestimate the power of religion to positively influence a child’s behavior—and shouldn’t restrict families’ choices on the basis of religion.
