Young Children's Behaviour: Practical Approaches for Caregivers and Teachers
"The premise for Young Children's Behaviour, 3rd edition, and the basis for the book's success, is that an adult's most powerful disciplinary tool is a caring relationship with children. The text provides a rationale to explain behavioural interventions and argues why some methods (such as punishment) should not be used. It provides a series of practical strategies for dealing with children's disruptive behaviour that are: consistent with the principles of high quality care and education; represent ethical or just practice; promote children's skill development; foster children's willingness to co-operate with others; safeguard children's emotional needs; and are congruent with the broader educational goals of the childcare or early childhood environment."--Provided by publisher.

The time to worry is when the idea is so widely shared that we no longer even notice it, when it is so deeply rooted that it feels to us like plain common sense. At the point when objections are not answered...
