I Heartily recommend Bill Hoatson's book. It contains wisdom acrrued by a supurb and committed teacher over many years of experience in some of the country's most challenging classrooms. He testifies to the effectiveness of the caring development of self-respect together with goal-directed discipline, an approach he supports by proven strategies with real kids with real discipline problems. Both his writing and his informative lectures are witty, insightful and wonderfully entertaining.

Introduction

Drug abuse is a whole different ballgame. Watch how your child acts while waiting for their "friend" to arrive. If they are calmly doing their homework, that is one thing. If they are continuously rocking back and forth like the pitching coach Leo Mazzoni in the ninth inning, that is not good. If they are chewing on their hand and making growling sounds, you better hope their friend gets there quick.
