Nearly 20,000 parent conferences in her 33-year career as a high school counselor has inspired author Karyn Rashoff to share her experience and insight to help guide parents and teens. During countless interviews with successful teens, their parents, educators and coaches, she learned that specific behaviors were used at home in the evenings that led to school success. To take the "drama" out of high school and hopefully make a more peaceful home, Rashoff shares the wisdom of these students and parents in 52 brief stories and chapters. Your daughter's attitude doesn't need to change in order for her behavior to change: her attitude will change when she sees positive results from her new school behavior! The school counselor's job is to reconcile the sometimes disparate desires of students, teachers, coaches, administrators and parents. This goal is difficult to reach under the best of conditions, yet Rashoff's observations of history, heartbreak and hope in high school have yielded a book that will most certainly guide parents, comfort students and encourage educators. This unique book makes major contributions to fundamental aspirations of personal growth, school success and societal harmony.

Needs to be a prerequisite for parents. If I could give this book more stars I would. I know this book is geared toward parents whose children are in high school, but I would recommend this book to anyone with school aged children. The book itself was a pleasure to read and transitioned easily from one chapter to the next. I wish this book was a prerequisite for parents to have before their children start school.
This book was a revelation and will - overnight - get your kids on the right track to success in school. It’ll help with homework, studying for tests, working on projects, and everything else that piles up on students that often causes them to lock horns with their parents. Let a student taste success a little at a time and you’ll see a domino effect. They’ll like themselves more and more and want to succeed more and more. This book shows how to make that happen. For parents like me who wished a guidance counselor lived next door, "Parents In Highschooland" is the next best thing.
