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.

Meowy Christmas!

Christmas 2024!

Yup, it's Christmas 2024!

See you again on January 3rd! Admin is closed until then!

Seriously--we "mostly" close from December 24th-ish until the middle of the week, first week of January. Production is still steaming along, but admin takes a desperately-needed break for ~10 days. We'll answer any emails that seem in dire straights, but generally speaking, we're mostly gone for that period of time.  See ya when we return!--Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
