It's not what you do to young people, but what they do for themselves!
With all the talk these days about discipline and young people, this game-changing book from Jim Roberson comes at things from a totally different angle. Discipline for Jim is not something you do to others or even something you do to yourself. It is something you do for yourself. His practical yet powerful philosophy is drawn from many years working with young people in the UK both in and out of school, as well as from his own powerful story: growing up in New York, becoming a successful American football player and getting himself a college education against the odds. The Discipline Coach is a book that is as powerful as it is inspiring. It will transform the way you approach even the most challenging of young people to help them succeed.

This would also make excellent reading for social workers, prison and probation staff, in fact anyone who deals with people with low self esteem. This book teaches you to coach them into a better mindset of positive actions to create a positive reaction.
As a final note, I was slightly disappointed at first that such a force in education as Jim Roberson had not written a longer book. On reflection all he his has done is stripped away all the extraneous theory and commentary and left you with the gems. An almost impossible task in education today but somehow Jim has the magic touch. Buy it, think about it, practice it, make a difference.
