Overview

For more than forty years and counting, family psychologist and best-selling author John Rosemond has been counseling parents about how to help children do their best in school. This new book draws on all of that knowledge and experience so that parents can set their kids on the path to success in education, even at age three. Dealing with common problems like how much and what kind of help to give with homework, what to do when a child misbehaves in school, and how to deal with academic performance that consistently falls below a child's ability level, Rosemond addresses every issue with time-tested advice and methods. Other books on schoolwork encourage lots of parental involvement. Not this one. Rosemond's approach will help parents disengage from homework and other hassles as they manage their children to even greater success in the classroom.

Describing his behavior management strategies that are used by school systems all over the country, he writes with an entertaining, compelling style that will keep parents reading the valuable, helpful information in John Rosemond's Fail-Safe Formula for Helping Your Child Succeed in School, and the book promises to earn high marks for both parents and children.
