Editorial Reviews

"This is a must read for anyone who deals with discipline. The authors have taken a topic that has been explored from every angle, and yet have managed to present it in a refreshing and dynamic style that gets to the heart of misbehavior and provides motivational strategies to correct students in a positive manner. A copy should be provided to every classroom teacher."¿Dr. David E. Lee, Educational Leadership and Research, University of Southern Mississippi
