Book Description

July 30, 2002 0897899067 978-0897899062

Middle school is a time in children's lives when they experience tremendous changes: physically, emotionally, and socially. It is a very vulnerable stage when children are exposed to risky behaviors, intense peer pressure, and a possible academic decline. Parents need to be aware of the issues and challenges that their children face so that they can help to solve problems in a proactive manner. When parents work closely with school personnel, young adolescents are guided more effectively.

The author, who has worked as a middle school counselor, reveals actual problems that a school counselor might encounter among students and provides vignettes of student situations and conversations with parents. She provides many suggestions to help parents establish boundaries for their children and give guidance as they navigate the troubled waters of early adolescence. She stresses that parents who are informed about the problems their children will face can better help them deal with the issues.

Editorial Reviews


"This is a must read for any parent sending a child to middle school. It captures the "pure" essence of adolescence. Having spent twenty-five years in the business as a middle school counselor and dealing with so many of the issues presented in this book, I found myself nodding my head throughout the entire book. The situations and suggestions were right on the money! The scenarios presented are very realistic and the advice given in very practical and it works. This book is one of the most comprehensive and well written books on middle schoolers that I have ever read. I can't wait to have this book published so I can recommend it to my parents."-Dedra H. Green Resource Guidance Counselor Montgomery County Public Schools

4.0 out of 5 stars Valuable Information June 24, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book offers very valuable and enlightening information about this subject. The transition from elementary school to middle school can present some very confusing issues for some students. I had been thinking that a child in middle school is much like a middle child in a family. The author of this book expressed the same opinion. This book offers some techniques to try to resolve some of these challenges and to help our students be the best they can be. Thanks.
