I wish this were required reading for all pre-service teachers. I've used Charney's ideas since I began my teaching career in 1999. Her approach is VERY effective. If you're looking for an approach to discipline that is loving, proactive, and student-centered, you've found the right book. She takes the time to teach children how to be kind to teach other. She creates an environment that allows ALL the children to feel cared for and appreciated, and as a result, behavior problems are minimal.

Recommends it for: teachers, day care folks, parents(?)
I re-read this every summer to gear up for the new school year. It is fabulous and indispensable. Reminders for new and old teachers on creating a community with children, helping them treat each other kindly and helping them behave appropriately, managing materials, etc.
By far, THE best book on classroom management. But anyone I ever recommended it to, never really liked it as much as I did. It seemed so clearly written and self affirming.
I read this book for my college education class and have been hooked ever since. The ideas are practical for the classroom and make sense. It's just good teaching practice!
