‘It's been over a decade since I sat down in a small back bedroom in Somerset and wrote this book. Since then, I've been fortunate enough to work with literally thousands of people in the world of education. Through all these experiences, I've picked up loads more great ideas about how to manage behaviour. I've also gained an insight into what works in different settings, with different young people, and for different kinds of staff. The basic tenets of this book remain faithful to the original. What I've done though is adapt and develop the ideas so that they apply to more practitioners, in more diverse situations: to those working in early years and further education, as well as primary and secondary schools. And for those of you working in the most challenging schools or colleges, I've included a new section on coping in really difficult circumstances. I've also taken advantage of new developments in the world of technology. So, there's a companion website offering you extra material, links and ideas.' <strong>Sue Cowley</strong> >

Praise for the previous editions:
'The book is rich and realistic: rich in the array of strategies and examples that work, and realistic in that it is based on vivid examples of how youngsters misbehave....Cowley has some illuminating and always useful ideas. Her advice is practical, sound and interspersed with imaginative ideas that arrest attention.' Times Educational Supplement
'If I was head of a school always (unfortunately) discussing behaviour, I would buy a copy for all the staff (including support staff), arrange an Inset day and review the whole-school policies and practices to enable all teachers to observe each other's practice in a focused way.' Tim Brighouse, formerly Chief Education Officer for Birmingham and Commissioner for London Schools
'Children are not the enemy — they are children — even the 18-year-olds, and this book offers much sound advice to keep you sane and happy through your teaching career.' Amazon reviewer
'...the benchmark in the practical handbook market.' Times Educational Supplement
Mini-review in the 'Book Club' section of Teach Primary, 1st August 2010 'Written with Sue Cowley's characteristic humour and sharp wit, this is a must have for all teachers — full of practical, easy to use and effective ideas'
"Like nearly all British newspapers, The TES places more emphasis on young people's crimes as the century wore on...There was also a shift in the tone of advice for teachers taking charge of a class for the first time. Whereas in the 1920s, the paper suggests teachers take the first few weeks as a leisurely opportunity to get to know the students, by the 1970s the focus is now on establishing immediate control and by the noughties it cites the most popular teaching book of that decade: Getting the Buggers to Behave." Michael Shaw, The TES
'Whata fab little book for any new teacher! This gives some excellent ideas forgetting your class to behave. And I teach adults in further education, butequally applies to younger students. This is a must have for ANY teacher!’Amazon reviewer
'Theadvice given is clear and practical and therefore much easier to follow. SueCowley also avoids the theory behind learning and the psycho-analysis that maymake the topic of classroom/behaviour management tedious and somewhat abstract.The practical "real" advice given that you can use is what makes thebook 5 stars for me.’ Amazon reviewer
'Written with Sue Cowley’s characteristic humour and sharpwit, this is a must have for all teachers – full of practical, easy to use andeffective ideas.’ Teach Primary
