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.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
