50 Quick Ways to Perfect Behaviour Management (Qui&hellip by Mike Gershon
1.0 out of 5 stars Obvious, 4 Jun 2014
I found a lot of the ideas in this book obvious. Most decent teachers already implement the recommendations. Nothing new & not what I was looking for at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Quick!!!, 17 Jun 2009
Although titled "Quick Costumes for kids" these are anything but quick.
1. You need to have a sewing machine.
2. You'll need to buy loads of specially coloured fabric.
3. The patterns are ALL on one big sheet from which you have to choose the correct ones.
4. You could buy similar costumes cheaper than it would take to make these.
If you're handy with a sewing machine and would like to make a costume simliar to bought ones then maybe you'll like this book. However I wanted original, quick ideas using things from around the home. I'll probably never use any of the designs, even though they're lovely!
How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids&hellip by Adele Faber

This book really does what it says on the cover. The advice is relevant for all parents who want non-confrontational ways of disciplining their children. There are many examples given and old/new ways of dealing with situations. I found myself re-reading chapters as incidents arose within my home. Although changes won't occur overnight there should be improvements in a few days. As a teacher, I also found some of the techniques and suggestions relevant for school, I certainly intend to use them in future.
