I have a therapist who developed an "End Childhood Defiance" program. In the program he has three levels: red, yellow, and green. Throughout the book he capitalizes each word as if it's a proper noun (ie: Put the child on Red for twenty-four hours, and then back to Green). He does the same thing with his 3 concepts of simple, respect, and consistent (ie: The three concepts are Simple, Respect, and Consistent.) Is this correct? He plans on going to press next week. I am designing the book for him, and am trying to advise him correctly. Thank you.
I think this might be common in self-help books. I read a book about organizing where the author differentiated between the common word "things" and the things you have some sort of emotional attachment to as "Things." When she used Things, you paid attention.
You should not replicate that author's style in common writing.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
