Lead with Two Rules: Feeling Good & Feeling Safe by Brenda Yoho
Be part of the problem or part of the solution, the choice is always yours to make.

Understanding safety is integral to the Two Rule philosophy. We guide students in recognizing what safety entails, its appearance, and sensation, fostering a conscious choice to prioritize safety. Additionally, we address the potential escalation from reactive reactions which can lead to violence, emphasizing the importance of breaking that cycle.

The Two-Rules philosophy complements existing safety practices in schools. While schools have comprehensive policies, the two rules encourage students to grasp the underlying reasoning behind these protocols, emphasizing the personal aspect of safety. By urging students to consider safety as vital to their well-being, it shifts the perspective from a mere handbook category to a crucial, life-oriented mindset. Addressing the normalization of violence prompts reflection on whether students perceive certain responses as normal in various situations.

Ensuring school safety is crucial for a conducive learning environment. Measures like security protocols, mental health support, and community involvement contribute to a holistic approach in addressing safety concerns.

Psychological safety is paramount in schools, fostering an environment where students feel emotionally supported and free from bullying or discrimination. Implementing anti-bullying programs, promoting inclusivity, and offering mental health resources contribute to creating a psychologically safe space for students to thrive.

Addressing violence in schools requires a multi-faceted approach. Focus on fostering a positive school culture, providing mental health support, enhancing security measures, and promoting open communication between students, staff, and parents. Collaboration with the community and continuous evaluation of strategies are crucial for long-term success. All of the components of Two Rules.

Starting the implementation of Two Rules is the first step in interrupting the cycle of violence we are seeing as a reactive response to every situation which is faced it seems. We see lots of anger and we need solutions.
