Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book should not only be required reading for parents with kids in high school, it should be required reading for every parent before their kids start school. There is little doubt if most parents would take the time to read this valuable little tome, the school experience for kids would be a far better one."

 --- San Francisco Book Review

"Rashoff uses her considerable experience (33 years as a high school counselor) to provide practical advice in this no-nonsense guidebook for parents and students. Rashoff's tone is compassionate but firm, and she uses snappy, memorable comparisons to get her points across, while employing advice from families who have successfully navigated high school."

--- Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover

Thanks to her 33 years of dedicated work as a high school guidance counselor, few education professionals are better qualified than author Karyn Rashoff to identify, analyze and resolve the complex interactions between students, their parents, and their teachers, tutors and coaches. Nearly 20,000 counseling interactions have pointed to specific behaviors for school success. 

The school counselor's job is to reconcile the sometimes disparate desires of students and those of their parents and educators. This goal is difficult to reach under the best of conditions, yet the author's keen observations of history, eartbreak and hope have yielded a book that will most certainly help to guide parents, comfort students, and encourage educators. 


This unique book makes major contributions to fundamental aspirations of personal growth, eventual career success, and societal harmony. And education is the key to it all.
