What can we do to make it a positive experience for them? How can we help them if it is not?..At high school children 'grow up', learning to become themselves and to develop significant relationships beyond the family. They begin to understand what interests them, what they are good at, and to imagine possible futures. ..We want them to sail through these years: some do, while others struggle. All experience times where reassurance and guidance is crucial, especially in their final year. Parent power can make a real difference: we need to know how to use it wisely...How's School? is the accumulated wisdom of Erin Shale, a school counsellor and teacher who has for over a decade guided young people and their families through the good, bad and funny experiences of school.
