Robert Morrish has been able to communicate with clarity what healthy discipline is and how to implement strong discipline programs. His writing style makes for easy reading and captivating the audience. The examples he uses to support his thoughts actually provide the catalyst for a paradigm shift for the reader.
Parents and teachers have a dynamic resource for developing or revising strategies already being used to guide our young people. Morrish presents the different styles of discipline that have been used over the years. He points out the philosphy for each and the effectiveness/ineffectiveness of each. He presents a model that has what is best for young people first and foremost. Anyone who supports young people would be hard pressed to argue with his efforts to bring us to a new level of understanding of the concept of discipline.
This book can be used as a model for schools to revise and/or suppport their discipline policy. His model is all inclusive which can only create a stronger school community.
I can honestly report that our school will be incorporating Robert Morrish's suggestions this coming school year.
