Restitution provides a way for children to “pay back” their mistakes. It can be a helpful way to teach children the importance of treating others and property with respect. When children make mistakes, they should acknowledge their wrong choice and think of a way to fix it. The restitution should be directly related to their incorrect behavior. The focus should be on fixing the damaged property or relationship rather than punishment. 

Below you will find resources you can use at home to help teach this important skill to your child.
