Elementary school replaces detention with meditation

Here's a new way to think about detention. At Baltimore's Robert W. Coleman Elementary, detention has been tossed out and replaced with meditation.

Teachers now send kids to the Mindful Moment Room.

"The practice of mindful awareness can guide students to improve relationships, create relaxation and calmness soothe the self, increase memory, enhance focus, reduce stress, manage reactions and emotions, increase self-acceptance, and feel more at ease with test taking."
