Christianity is in crisis. The world is nowhere near where it should be, and seems to be getting worse. As our culture and society free fall further into degeneracy, the question is asked: what are we to do?

Conscientious Christians, knowing that we are called to be salt and light in this earth, are making efforts. What has emerged is an emphasis on politics, apologetics, and evangelism at the adult level. A Full Reward: Reformation Through Family-Run Christian Schools is a look at something different.

Current efforts at reformation have had mixed results. A Full Reward offers a new hope. The book's thesis is this - reformation will come, but it will come from the bottom-up, via ministry to the youngest members of our society: our preschool children. The very young are often neglected by even otherwise faithful ministries, as is shown by the attention given at the elementary, high school, and college level.

This book is about how to change society through missions work to these little children - the real fields ripe for the harvest (John 4:35). Even more, A Full Reward is about self-supporting missionary work performed by families. Because Christians first and foremost have a responsibility to their own families, the system explained in this book explains how to operate a ministry that fully provides for its operators and their families.

Imagine this: being able to impact and reform society, help children and their families, teach reading and Bible to hundreds of young children, and have their parents pay you for your services! It's an evangelist's dream come true and it can be reality. Such a ministry has existed for more than a quarter century in Southwest Florida. It is a ministry that does not rely on donations, but instead has a product worth selling: a great Christian early childhood education. It is a ministry truly independent and devoted to evangelism in its purest form. The ultimate goal of this ministry: the transformation of society through Christian education. Such a ministry can be yours, too. Find out how in A Full Reward: Reformation Through Family-Run Christian Schools and earn your full reward!

From a distinguished clinician, pioneer in working with behaviorally challenging kids, and author of the acclaimed The Explosive Child comes a groundbreaking approach for understanding and helping these kids and transforming school discipline.

Frequent visits to the principal's office. Detentions. Suspensions. Expulsions. These are the established tools of school discipline for kids who don't abide by school rules, have a hard time getting along with other kids, don't seem to respect authority, don't seem interested in learning, and are disrupting the learning of their classmates. But there's a big problem with these strategies: They are ineffective for most of the students to whom they are applied.

It's time for a change in course.

Here, Dr. Ross W. Greene presents an enlightened, clear-cut, and practical alternative. Relying on research from the neurosciences, Dr. Greene offers a new conceptual framework for understanding the difficulties of kids with behavioral challenges and explains why traditional discipline isn't effective at addressing these difficulties. Emphasizing the revolutionarily simple and positive notion that kids do well if they can, he persuasively argues that kids with behavioral challenges are not attention-seeking, manipulative, limit-testing, coercive, or unmotivated, but that they lack the skills to behave adaptively. And when adults recognize the true factors underlying difficult behavior and teach kids the skills in increments they can handle, the results are astounding: The kids overcome their obstacles; the frustration of teachers, parents, and classmates diminishes; and the well-being and learning of all students are enhanced.

In Lost at School, Dr. Greene describes how his road-tested, evidence-based approach -- called Collaborative Problem Solving -- can help challenging kids at school.

His lively, compelling narrative includes:

• tools to identify the triggers and lagging skills underlying challenging behavior.

• explicit guidance on how to radically improve interactions with challenging kids -- along with many examples showing how it's done.

• dialogues, Q & A's, and the story, which runs through the book, of one child and his teachers, parents, and school.

• practical guidance for successful planning and collaboration among teachers, parents, administrations, and kids.

Backed by years of experience and research, and written with a powerful sense of hope and achievable change, Lost at School gives teachers and parents the realistic strategies and information to impact the classroom experience of every challenging kid.
