Karyn Rashoff’s first book Parents in Highschooland: Helping Students Succeed in the Critical Years is a caring and supportive account of her 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.
In her career, during which she documented nearly 20,000 counseling interactions with students, parents, teachers and administrators, Karyn 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.”
On this website, you can read stories from Parents in Highschooland. Also, Karyn offers practical tips and suggests helpful resources for parents and educators. Check back regularly for more information including upcoming presentations, classes, and book signings.
