Our time-honored methods of punishments and rewards haven’t taught discipline; they’ve undermined it. Journalist Katherine Reynolds Lewis spent five years investigating this crisis: 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. In her 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.
