Product Description

Review

"No one in America has thought more deeply about the problems of disruptive children in school than Ross Greene. In his brilliant new book, he goes inside the minds of children and school personnel to explain why old-fashioned school discipline and Zero Tolerance policies have failed. Then he offers original and tested new strategies for working with the most behaviorally challenging children. Every teacher and administrator who has ever felt that traditional discipline isn't working should read Lost in School." -- Dr. Michael Thompson, school consultant, co-author, Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys and author, Best Friends/Worst Enemies: Understanding the Social World of Children

"We cannot ignore difficult student behaviors any longer. Dr. Greene's book is a timely contribution to the literature on how schools must support ALL students, and his approach fits well with Response to Intervention (RTI)." -- Rachel Brown-Chidsey, Ph.D., NCSP Associate Professor, School Psychology Program, University of Southern Maine, coauthor, Response to Intervention: Principles and Strategies for Effective Practice

"In his new and dynamic book Dr. Ross Greene presents an innovative and field-tested approach to understanding and guiding troubled students. He encourages and challenges the reader to recognize that the child HAS a problem as opposed to the widely-held view that the child IS a problem. Dr. Greene gives a voice to a group of children who are often misunderstood and miseducated. He provides invaluable information and insights that will enable you to give challenging kids the care that they need and deserve. Those kids -- and the adults who care for them -- are in Dr. Greene's debt." -- Richard D. Lavoie, M.A., M.Ed., author, It's So Much Work To Be Your Friend: Helping the Child with Learning Disabilities Find Social Success and The Motivation Breakthrough: 6 Secrets to Turning On the Tuned-out Kid

"Dr. Greene removes all doubt: Even with challenging kids, rewards and punitive 'consequences' can (and should) be replaced with collaborative problem-solving. Lost at School is a detailed and immensely practical guide whose approach makes much more sense than behavior management plans and other tactics of control. It's hard to imagine any educators, counselors, or parents who wouldn't benefit from reading this book. And their kids will benefit even more." -- Alfie Kohn, author of Beyond Discipline and Punished by Rewards

"A positive and practical approach for teachers who want to work to redemptively with kids whose classroom behavior is an impediment to academic and social success." -- Carol Ann Tomlinson, Ed.D., Curry School of Education, University of Virginia --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

For anyone who thinks that outdated discipline practices (for example, a heavy reliance on consequences, especially punishment) are the the way to go for helping challenging kids, you'll think differently after reading this book. It will change the way you view children's problems and also change the way you treat them. This shows you effective ways of how to help challenging kids with their lagging skills and unsolved problems. A must read for teachers!

What a fantastic book for educators. If you have children with behaviour issues, you NEED to read this book. It will give you some insight into why they behave the way they behave. It may not give all the answers, but it certainly gives you some wonderful guidelines.
I encourage every teacher to read it. Even parents can read it, although it is more geared for teachers. If you're a parent, read the "companion" book, The Explosive Child, by the same author.

I cannot say enough good things about this book. As a child psychologist it is one of the few books I recommend widely, and I believe that it should be required reading for every professional who works in a school setting. This book provides very important and useful information for those working with children who are experiencing behavioral difficulties at school. It would also be useful to parents who need to advocate for their children at school. If you are looking for an effective way to work with these children, I highly recommend this book! Parents may also be interested in the book Ross Greene has written for parents of children with significant behavioural difficulties (The Explosive Child), as it addresses the same ideas within the context of the home environment.

This is a book recommended to me (a developmental pediatrician by teachers. I am so glad that there is a change of philosophy occurring among teaching staff and less reliance on medications as solutions for behavioral problems.

I read this for one of my educational psych classes and found it super insightful into how to handle a situation with a student productively. I feel as though the approach suggested can be potentially difficult to implement due to the time required to properly use it but I can see how it could be useful.
