Addressing the emotional and academic needs of kids in grades four through twelve, Lawrence Greene examines the counterproductive behaviors and attitudes that undermine academic performance, diminish self-esteem and limit educational and career options. Each chapter focuses on a particular deficit area and offers accessible, hands-on methods for parents to guide and mentor their struggling child. Parents learn how to:
* Help their child identify natural talents and use them when learning
* Choose a democratic or autocratic approach to modifying behavior
* Use the DIBS system to solve problems
* Open an effective dialogue with their child
* Express positive expectations and affirm and praise effort and progress
* And much more
