The PAX Good Behavior Game changes children's futures
Four Miracles happen when children go to school, and these Miracles can grow for a child’s whole life. A child’s teacher is the agent of those Miracles.
The First Miracle involves acquiring the ability to read, thus allowing a child to learn the wisdom of generations who have gone before us.
The Second Miracle comes from learning to write, thereby enabling a child to share wisdom with the current and future generations.
The Third Miracle happens when a child learns to compute the orderliness of the world with mathematics, thereby allowing a child to create and test new things for the world’s betterment.
The Fourth Miracle evolves as a child acquires PAX— the mental ability to sustain attention, to self-regulate or self-manage, and to cooperate with others intentionally to create peace, productivity, health and happiness for self and others, so that all of this repeats the cycle of the Four Miracles for future generations. The PAX Good Behavior Game is the teacher invented, scientifically proven tool that allows every teacher to perform the Fourth Miracle.

"My class just enjoys PAX......and being PAX leaders! We have decided instead of Valentines Day we are celebrating Tootles Friendship Day! Each child will be writing a Tootles for each child in the class! I made small Tootles and I'm getting huge support from my parents! Please spread the PAX message....it works!!!! If PAX can work in my school....in my class...it can work everywhere!!!! You have my support in any way I can share!"
"I started teaching in 1975. During this time I have seen various "classroom management" schemes come and go. PAX is far superior to anything from the past because it is a way of life and not just a classroom management scheme. It empowers children to be the best they can be and is a confidence builder. I have heard teams talk about what they should do the next time when they scored more than 3 spleems in the current game. What a refreshing change to see them collaborating about positive behavior plans. Too bad PAX came along so late in my career!"
"Students are able to stay/focus on task and get a lot accomplished. They are quite responsible and help each other. The classroom is an enjoyable place to be."
