Greatest system ever Dec 17, 2009
I'm a school social worker and recommend this book and the CD's to every parent who has concerns about disipline.
I used the system myself when my children were young and it did work like magic.
The underlying philosophy is that parents talk as little as possible and act calmly when disciplining. (Not easy, but powerful.)
In my experience too many adults and teachers try to talk children into behaving. If this doesn't work the first 100 times, they go to 101. If talking, lecturing, pleading, bargaining, threatening, etc., worked, no parent or teacher would have a problem.
Talking doesn't work when it comes to misbehavior. It actually reinforces the poor behavior; wastes the parents time and energy; and gives the child too much power.
Get the book and CD's, give the book and CD's. They have them in Spanish also.
