There are children who act out in school because of problems at home; there are children who act out at home because of behavior they learn at school. The question that parents and educators must keep in mind when disciplining these children is not simply how to alter misbehavior, but in helping children express their autonomy in a more controlled, manageable way. The pivotal approach of this book lies in helping children develop this sense of self-control. This book takes the unique perspective of integrating management and discipline, giving readers the tools to think about and handle self-discipline and misbehavior in children. Instead of directing the focus on how to handle misbehavior, readers are shown the tactics for avoiding discipline problems, using numerous discipline scenarios and applications. Pertinent case studies and incidents help readers think through the problem and apply the appropriate ideas and actions. There is timely coverage of important research findings on motivations, establishing authority, managing the physical environment and many other significant topics. There are also in-depth discussions on group dynamics, motivations and discipline, dealing with persistent misbehavior, and handling serious misbehavior problems. Educators, administrators, school counselors, and parents.
