Each child has the same rights and responsibilities, equal access to resources, and is treated as an equal human being no matter what.
This Touchstone means that everyone has the same chance of taking on different roles in a community, and the same chance to learn and have opportunities.
To be fair, we use basic principles of community justice. When a child has done the wrong thing ‘punishment’ is not the first option. Children in Jabiru communities will be helped to experience the consequences of their actions, take time for personal reflection. and listen to feedback from others around them.
This will always be offered in kindness, taking care to ensure that each child is part of the decisions and outcomes arising from their own actions.
