Kids in Musicianland and Parents in Highschooland are available for purchase locally at

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.


I invite you to send me your family’s personal success in Highschooland to possibly share with other readers in my future book. I look forward to hearing from you at  info@karynrashoff.com.

    But I wouldn’t expect anything but the best which is your norm. I am blessed to have you as a long time friend and you are missed dearly by me and our precious students. Congratulations mi Amiga!

    Karyn – Your book is a great road map for helping parents successfully navigate their way though that challenging place called “Highschooland”.

    Hi Karen:
    Great web site. Even though I don’t have highschooler, I can’t wait to read the book and give a copy to my daughter.

    Congratulations Karyn,
    What a great accomplishment. I’m ordering a copy to share with my daughter. She should find this interesting as she pursues her child psychology degree!
