Elements of Discipline is a timely and helpful book for teachers, parents, and day-care professionals that provides a simple set of rules for managing - successfully and humanely - a wide range of discipline situations and challenges. A well-respected child development specialist, Stephen Greenspan outlines his "ABC Theory of Discipline". He combines an Affective approach, a Behavioral approach, and a Cognitive approach that, when used in a coordinated fashion, will contribute to greater child compliance and family/classroom harmony.
Greenspan suggests that, using his matrix, caregivers can provide the warmth, tolerance, and influence that will help children become competent in three socio-emotional domains - happiness, boldness, and niceness. He recommends caregivers pick and choose from the discipline literature in a manner that best suits their individual style and values.
Elements of Discipline is a lively guide to effective classroom or family management.
The book is published by Temple University Press.

Great book but Excessive criticizing of other authors
Even though the book has amazing material and advise. The author spend way too much time and effort criticizing a lot of other authors. Sounded very narcissistic.
A well researched book providing an explanation of the literature regarding child discipline. Also includes a practical approach to applying a combination of the literature in real life. Presented in an interesting way
