Training for Prison is a book meant to invoke thoughts and reflections. The idea for this book came from Hollis Batista’s three decades as an educator, during which time she met many wonderful teachers, parents, and students. Many of the students she met were, in her opinion, training for prison. The students often did not believe that their path of life was heading in that direction; still, that is where their behaviors led them.

As a parent, if you could take steps to modify high-risk behaviors before they lead your child to prison, wouldn’t you? Of course you would!

“Dr. Hollis is very dedicated to her passion for education and believes that being a parent is a special gift of rewards and difficulty. Training for Prison is a book that is timeless and gives parents examples of patterns of behaviors that are categorized as Red Flag Behaviors. This book also stresses that investing time in developing positive role models for your child will often help him or her to choose the path of not going to prison.” -Dr. Tonya Starz: Dr. of Management and Organizational Leadership

“Applause! Applause! For Training for Prison. Having worked as a guidance counselor for over three decades in the public school system, I wish this book would have been available sooner. Parents need to know that so much must be addressed in their child's lives long before problems start. The path to prison begins early with behavior that warrants detentions, suspensions, and alternative placements. Thanks to Dr. Batista for sharing her knowledge and expertise.” -Saundra Mason, M.Ed, NCC, LPC

“American society desperately needs Training for Prison, and quickly! An insightful and sobering warning against behaviors that lead to unbridled hostility, lawlessness, and horrendous crime, this book shocks us into awareness of what we as parents are not but should be doing to restore our moral compasses. Dr. Hollis Batista has identified certain behaviors which, if allowed to go unchecked in their early manifestations, might well lead their children to prison--behaviors such as bullying, aggressive actions, and violent language. Dr. Hollis has written her book with concern and love for humanity.” -Susan Vreeland: New York Times Bestselling Author of Eight Novels, most recently “Lisette’s List”
