Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No more exhaustive attempts at reasoning, persuasion, or threats.

Power struggles, lack of motivation, disruptive students, and Attention Deficit Disorder—hardly how we'd like to describe classrooms of the nineties. But, more and more adults agree that children are pushing them to the limits. For this reason, thousands of teachers, child care providers, and parents are turning to the solutions presented in Setting Limits in the Classroom. This book provides alternatives to the ineffective extremes of punishment and permissiveness, and outlines methods for setting clear, firm limits supported by words and actions. This step-by-step guide shows you how to:

create structure that works stop power struggles motivate students solve homework problems

Tested and used all over the country by adults working with children, the Setting Limits program can mean the difference between disruptive educational environments and satisfying, cooperative teacher-student relationships.
