Overview

Featuring fantastic real-life stories that are contemporary and motivational, this strategy guide for parents provides the necessary tools for those who want to make a difference in their children's education. By addressing difficult issues that have a tendency to distract kids from their studies—such as peer pressure and sexuality—as well as the everyday influence of rap music, television, and video games, these accessible strategies teach parents how to communicate better and raise their expectations of their children. Rounded out by advice on how to help with homework, maintain good grades, and enforce the respect for authority on which a good education depends, this indispensable guide also grants parents better insight into the challenges faced by schools.
