'Great resource! A must for parents of 6th graders.'
When I saw the title of this book, I was hooked. That was exactly how I felt - my baby was going to middle school, and I wasn't sure what to expect! Having read other books by Dr. Parks, I knew this one would be useful, and it was! In this book, there are lessons about homework, behavior, character, peer pressure, learning independence, gaining responsibility, and so much more. My child wasn't just going to a new school, she was entering a whole new world - one that neither of us had any experience with - and that made us both nervous. With the use of this book, I feel that we are both ready to make this step a successful one! While we still worry about the lockers and the hallways, I'm sure both myself and my daughter will manage to make this sixth grade year a great one. I have Mr. Parks to thank! This book is NOT just for incoming sixth grade parents, however. It provides a structure for any parent of a middle schooler who may be facing challenges to their success in any of the grades of middle school. There are even helps on how to talk to the teachers and how to maximize the home/school partnership. I highly recommend this book for other parents facing this daunting event!
