I Heartily recommend Bill Hoatson's book. It contains wisdom acrrued by a supurb and committed teacher over many years of experience in some of the country's most challenging classrooms. He testifies to the effectiveness of the caring development of self-respect together with goal-directed discipline, an approach he supports by proven strategies with real kids with real discipline problems. Both his writing and his informative lectures are witty, insightful and wonderfully entertaining.

Transform the school, transform society.

DO NOT PROTECT YOUR CHILD FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR OWN MISBEHAVIOR or else they will never learn anything. You will be backing down the teacher, then backing down the administrators, then backing down the police officer, then backing down the probation officer, and then you are going to be trying to back down the state prosecutor, who apparently doesn't know what back down means. He is a dolt.
