For many parents and students, the transition from elementary school to middle school can be difficult. Managing Middle School Madness is a compilation of advice and information to help parents prepare for the behavioral, social, and academic adjustments that students may encounter. In this book, Glen Gilderman offers practical tips on topics such as preparing for the first day of school, establishing strong parent-teacher relationships, helping with organizational skills, setting up rewards for grades, monitoring student friendships, and understanding bullying. He also advises on how parents can maintain awareness of tough issues such as alcohol and drug use, teenage pregnancy, depression, eating disorders, and suicide. Included are worksheets for parents and children and resources that can be used throughout the middle school years.
