Trying to Figure Out Your Highschooler?
Here’s a Book You Can Use Tonight.
Parents in Highschooland is built around concrete anecdotes and examples of positive things parents have found successful in their homes and in their direct contact with school officials, teachers, coaches — and, of course, their teens. Tips, interviews, and true stories told by students, parents and educators are demonstrated throughout the book.
All parents want their teens to become independent, confident and ready to take on the rigors of college and the responsibilities of adulthood. This book may be used as a quick reference of ideas for parents who are long-term planners with a child just beginning the educational process, as well as for parents in the throes of the usual tasks of watching their teen grow up.
