Thật ra tựa phụ “Khuyến khích trẻ tự giác kỷ luật" nên đưa lên thành tựa chính mang ý nghĩa tích cực hơn nhưng có lẽ người ta quen với khái niệm giáo dục là phải có trừng phạt nên để cái tựa như vậy sẽ gây được chú ý.
Nếu bạn nào biết chút ít về tâm lý thì tư tưởng của quyển sách này dựa trên nền tảng Tâm lý học nhân văn của Carl Rogers. Cốt lõi của học thuyết tâm lý của Carl Rogers là mỗi người đều có thể tự đưa ra giải pháp ch

While Dr. Gordon made some pretty good points, he spent too much time discussing the history of punishment and discipline for me.

Good advise, however I think the book is concentrating more on explaining and proving why his approach works, while others are not and why people are reluctant to change - which IS interesting but can become tedious to work through if you "just" look for HOW-TOs. At times I'd call it a mild rant... (though a scientifically backed one) ;-)
There are actually not that many practices, the main objective of the book is probably not so much the practices themselves than the change of mindset - which i

Thì gật gù từ đầu tới cuối thôi không biết nói chi thêm.
Cuốn này không hẳn nói về giáo dục không trừng phạt, mà còn nói về chuyện giáo dục không khen thưởng. Nó bày những cách cực cụ thể để đưa dân chủ vào lớp học, không sử dụng bất kỳ mánh lới, thủ thuật nào, không tạo ra bất kỳ áp lực nào.. Nó cho sẵn những mẩu hội thoại, những cách nói chuyện khá là hiệu quả để không còn kẻ thắng người thua trong cuộc nói chuyện, không còn những đứa trẻ bướng hay những người cô người thầy thích dạy dỗ, triết

Cuốn Giáo dục không trừng phạt này dành tới gần 150 trang (và chưa dừng lại) để cung cấp những lý lẽ và dẫn chứng cho việc thưởng và phạt trong giáo dục trẻ em là không hiệu quả.

Các dẫn chứng chứng minh áp dụng thưởng - phạt không phải là cách tốt nhất và sự vô ích của những hành vi trừng phạt dựa trên uy quyền sức mạnh thì cụ thể và thuyết phục nhưng nhiều quá, khiến cuốn sách rất u ám. Vừa đọc vừa nghĩ kiểu "tôi hiểu rồi, mình nói sang chuyện khác được chưa?"

“Power suppresses creativity and productivity; it is hazardous to the health and well-being of both the controller and the controllee. Power generates the forces that will inevitably destroy or replace it; power bites its own tail; it stifles creative dissent; it extinguishes trust, fellowship, intimacy, and love; power entraps the controller as it enslaves the controllee.” 3 likes
