"If I could give this book more stars, I would. I know this book is geared towards 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."
Ms. Rashoff's advice comes from experience that is tried and true. As a high school nurse in Long Beach, I am recommending this book. She covers all the issues that come up daily in high school. For example, sometimes it is hard to hear that we are "over parenting", but Rashoff presents the pitfalls objectively with care but without blame.
"Rashoff's tone is compassionate but firm, and she uses snappy, memorable comparisons to get her points across while employing advice from families who have successfully navigated high school. Rashoff has complied such a helpful book - well researched, on topic, with plenty of good examples - that it's hard to give her anything but an A."
