    I read it last yr and just checked it out again from the library. I like his method, but not sure I can get the school on board!!

    We're having problems at school again. UGHHH

    I have started it, but never got to finish it.

    I do like what I have read so far. I also recommended it to the principal of the school where I work.

    Getting the school on board, that can be the tough part. But, if you can get them to at least give it a try and if they see a positive difference, you can get them to embrace it.

    I read it and thought it was very good. I actually purchased a copy for the compliance officer at difficult child's school.

    Read it, loved it, gave my copy to the school, and they ordered 6 more to give to various teachers and to keep in the resource library.

    Now I'm pushing Ross Greene's actual training, tho I must say, wee difficult child's staff this year are embracing TEC and Plan B.

    Its pretty amazing. I see his mainstream teacher using it with another behavior challenged child in his class, and its making a difference.

    Hi,

    This is the best book on collaborative problem solving - the language and the examples are great.

    I would share the http://thinkkids.org site especially the video clips and now Dr Greene's site where the video clips and voices are mainly in school settings

    http://livesinthebalance.org

    The book and sites are great for both school staff and parents and of course for kids
