Contingencies instead of Consequences

I am busy working on my next post all about disengaged learners and children who are bored. I hope to post it soon when I get to attack all those items on my never-ending “to-do” list.

In the meantime, I have just finished reading a very informative article called “Use Contingencies Rather Than Consequences” by Marvin Marshall. He explains how contingencies reduce negative communication with our children and achieve greater results. It is well worth reading.

Find the article here.

    I tried this the other day and it worked. I knew this, but like a lot of things, we forget when we are overwhelmed. Thanks for posting.

      That’s the beauty of blogging, isn’t it. There is so much out there and we can’t use all of it, all of the time…so it is great to have all these fantastic resources out there to remind us from time to time…
