I have taken the liberty to share a comment about the discipline and education book and my home website. The book and staff development material are available free for any school in the USA that desires to use the totally noncoercive —but not permissive—approach. Applications are available at the DisciplineWithout Stress, Inc. website.
“Marv Marshall makes a compelling argument that stress, punishment, and rewards are counterproductive in raising or teaching children. At best they merely create temporary compliance. More likely, they corrode relationships, deter risk-taking, overlook the underlying causes of behavior, and subvert the learning process. Marshall points the way to successful strategies such as reframing perceptions and initiating specific intervention techniques. Parents, teachers, and principals should read this book—and rush to do so.”
