More About the Author
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Bill Allin taught primary, junior and intermediate classes of all socio-economic categories for 17 years in Canada. As a result of his close work with children, he gained an unusual perspective on the human needs, social skills and coping mechanisms that children employ that many other professionals have overlooked. He has created extraordinary learning labs for both the teacher and the taught, allowing for the study of further insights into the behavioral patterns and problems that children, teens and adults face. He holds a Master of Education (M.Ed.) from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto.
I especially enjoy my internet groups, including the TIA group where I offer a daily quote and comment about how it affects our daily lives. The group's home page is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/turningitaround/
The Turning It Around web site includes a section called News Articles which contain some critically important information about raising children and teaching them, information that is not generally practised within schools.
TIA should be required reading for parents, grandparents and teachers.
