Description

Dr. Gordon addresses a major concern of both parents and teachers-disciplining children. He describes why traditional discipline doesn't work either at home or in the classroom. Drawing on published research findings as well as his own experience as a clinical psychologist, he makes a strong case against punitive, power-based methods of discipline which only cause new problems — from rebellion to depression. He also makes a strong case against permissiveness. As an alternative to being either strict or lenient, Dr. Gordon offers a workable, proven third approach that results in solutions and agreements that meet the needs of both adults and children. As a result, children learn to be self-disciplined, responsible, cooperative and considerate of others. They also enjoy higher self-esteem which is essential to positive mental health and academic achievement. Parents and teachers who are frustrated by the failure of “dare to discipline” and “tough love” style approaches will welcome Dr. Gordon's arguments and embrace the alternative he describes.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon

 

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

And since nobody reads anything, I've simply removed the phone number from the site.  

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
