Katherine Reynolds-Lewis: The Good News About Bad Behavior

The Ivy Bookshop

In The Good News About Bad Behavior: Why Kids Are Less Disciplined Than Ever and What To Do About It, Katherine Reynolds-Lewis offers modern parenting guidance that subverts our outdated views on punishments and rewards.

Reynolds-Lewis knows that every parent experiences that feeling of irritation, shame, embarrassment, or frustration: why can’t my kid behave? And now, with digital distractions everywhere and disapproving grandparents looking on, it seems like today’s kids are having a harder time than ever maintaining self-control.  Are we crazy, or is kids’ behavior really worse now than ever before?

To stem this growing crisis of self-regulation, journalist and parenting expert Katherine Reynolds-Lewis articulates what she calls The Apprenticeship Model, a new theory of discipline that centers on learning the art of self-control. Blending new scientific research and powerful individual stories of change, Lewis shows that, if we trust our children to face consequences, they will learn to adapt and moderate their own behavior. She watches as chaotic homes become peaceful, bewildered teachers see progress, and her own family grows and evolves in light of these new ideas. You'll recognize your own family in Lewis's sensitive, realistic stories, and you'll find a path to making everyone in your home more capable, kinder, and happier--including yourself.

Reynolds-Lewis is an award-winning journalist based in the Washington, DC, area who regularly writes for the Atlantic, Fortune, USA Today’s magazines, Washington Post, and Working Mother. Her story about school discipline was Mother Jones' most-read article ever.  She is a certified parent educator with the Parent Encouragement Program in Kensington, Maryland.
