One of the greatest challenges to our culture today is that far too many children are simply out of control. This chaos, which affects not only schools but also family life and communities, stems from the fact that many children lack the basic skills of self-control, self-confidence, responsibility, problem solving, and cooperation. Often adults don't understand how to teach children these ideas in a way that children can understand because they themselves weren't taught them. Jon Oliver's Boston-based Lesson One Foundation has been lauded by the educational community and the White House because if offers a novel and effective approach for teaching children these critical skills. In this step-by-step guide, Oliver draws on inspirational stories from his own life and thirty years of teaching experience to show parents and others how they can put the program to work and begin helping children navigate through life. Following the logical progression of a child's development, the program uses upbeat activities and games - from the Pledge for Success and Self-Control to the Bubbles Challenges - that adults and children can share to ground Lesson One skills in everyday life. With a much-needed answer to the violence and discipline problems that continue to grip our culture, here is the book that anyone living and working with children have been waiting for - a lesson plan that works for life.
