Parenting & Relationships
OMG PAW G2G. Oh my god, parents are watching, got to go.Today’s text-messaging middle schoolers may seem like a different species from how parents remember themselves as sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. Children are often forced to confront serious issues like drugs, violence, sexuality, and technology at an age that would have been unthinkable even a decade ago. So it’s natural for parents to worry about these crucial years. Still, educator Joe Bruzzese believes that this time can be full of positive transformation as your child gains independence and your parental role shifts from omnipresent manager to supportive coach. Timely topics include cyberbullying, depression, and choosing realistic and rewarding extracurricular activities.The middle school years can and should be a time of exciting change and opportunity; A Parents’ Guide to the Middle School Years presents what you need to know to survive and thrive as a family.

I like this book but he goes into way too much detail about most things. Things I feel are common sense or you already know by the time your child is in middle school. I'm a parent who does a lot of research about raising a child and this was sort of too 101 for me.
  • Shakanos
Just as expected. Great product
  • Mr.Death
Good advice. Take all of it in moderation according to your child's needs and personality.

This book ranks as one of the best I've seen on helping your child transition out of the elementary years into a future of academic success. For many kids, middle school is the beginning of a radically different learning environment. For the first time, they travel from classroom to classroom to learn from a variety of teachers who each cover a specific subject. They also confront social issues at an age that would have been unthinkable even a decade ago. This book includes ideas galore--mind-mapping and goal-setting projects, coaching tips on ways to stay involved in your kids' lives without making them crazy, and study and organizational ideas. (I've put the "milk crate filing system" into practice successfully.) The 6th-8th grade years have proven to be critical time in the student's academic career, both rewarding and challenging, when kids gain independence and parents assume the role of supportive coach. I highly recommend this book for everyone who has or will have a middle schooler.Parents' Guide to the Middle School Years

This book is full of valuable information concerning today's kids as they take that major step into middle school. From dealing with bullying to organizing their lockers - to adjusting to changing classes and teachers several times a day, entering Middle School can be overwhelming for many kids. If you have a child that is entering Middle School this fall - this is a must read for you - great summer reading! Being prepared is the first step to helping your child have a successful academic year.

This book is a no-nonsense guide on preparing yourself and your child for middle school. It is broken down into easy to read chapters with great information. I especially enjoyed the scavenger hunt exercise to help prepare your child for the first few weeks of working through changing classes, locker trips and bathroom breaks. Mr. Bruzzese gives good advice about how to encourage your child to take responsibility for their own education.
