Help! I Need Help Getting My Son to do His Homework!

The book “Parents in Highschooland: Helping Students Succeed in the Critical Years” is Karyn Rashoff’s caring and supportive account of thirty-three years of dedicated work as a high school guidance counselor. Homework is a big issue at home, sometimes causing power struggles or warfare between teens and their parents.

Publishers Weekly Select - HighschoolandIn her career, during which she documented nearly 20,000 counseling interactions with students, parents, teachers and administrators, she identifies, analyzes and resolves the complex and usually conflict-filled interactions between students and their parents in a selection of some 50 stories taken lovingly from “real life.”

Concrete anecdotes and examples of positive things parents can do (and have found successful) in their homes and in their direct contact with school officials, teachers, coaches—and, of course, their children—are supplemented throughout the book by tips, interviews and true stories told by both students and parents.
