Please join Katherine Reynolds Lewis for a discussion about Katherine’s book, The Good News About Bad Behavior: Why Kids Are Less Disciplined Than Ever—and What to Do About It. Katherine will sign books following the talk.
Katherine's Mother Jones article “What If Everything You Knew About Disciplining Kids Was Wrong?” became the most-read article in the history of the magazine. It argued that our time-honored methods of punishments and rewards haven't taught discipline--they've undermined it. Katherine spent five years investigating our crisis of self-regulation: observing families at the dinner table, meeting educators who are transforming the school experience for kids with attention and mood disorders, studying psychological research, and looking introspectively at her own parenting habits. And in this unexpected and valuable book, she documents a new theory of discipline that could reverse the trend: «The Apprenticeship Model,» which centers on listening and building children’s skills to address the root causes of misbehavior, rather than reactionary incentives and consequences. By strengthening their connection, communication and capability, we can raise children who are self-disciplined, confident, and better equipped to handle the challenges they'll face in life--and whose parents can finally stop wondering what they're doing wrong.
