This readable, humorous book presents the research-supported principles of positive behavioural management in a way that will appeal to teachers, school leaders, and other professionals who work with children and adolescents. The author presents key behaviour management strategies with references to literature, music, and popular culture that illustrate the humour in behavioural issues while providing an overview of the foundations of effective behaviour management. Each short chapter discusses a basic behavioural strategy or principle by using anecdotes and analogies and drawing parallels to real-life situations.
