Hard hitting child guidance exposes many roots of teen problems. Mr. Hoatson very cleverly uses respect and love mixed with plenty of humor to redirect these lives. If you are an educator, parent, or just love a kid, you will find this book very useful and entertaining.

7 Minute Lecture Series - 2. How to Create a Dropout

Bill illustrates how "raising the bar" is an ineffective method of motivating children to learn. He proposes a method that has worked for him in his many years as a teacher to the children others deemed unteachable.

One of the casualties of never learning respect is having no self respect.
