Restorative Justice

What You Need:


What You Do:

  1. Ask your child if they have ever heard of the words "restorative justice." If they have, ask what they think the term means.
  2. Explain to them that restorative justice is an approach in which the person harmed and the aggressor (the person who acted out) participate together in resolving matters arising from the negative behavior, usually with the help of another adult.
  3. Ask your child if they have an example of this from something they read, saw, or experienced in their own life (an instance where there was a disagreement and all of the people involved were able to come together and talk about the situation).
  4. Play the video What Is Restorative Justice? for your child.
  5. Ask what stood out to them in the video, and have them share their thoughts on restorative justice.
  6. Use the Restorative Justice at Home worksheet as a guide to discuss how you could use restorative justice at home.
  7. Work with your child to put together a restorative justice plan to use at home.
  8. Ask your child if they have any questions.
