Help Your Child to Thrive: Making the Best of a Struggling Public Education System

(2014)

Contemporary public schools focus intensely on academic success. Social-emotional development is given only incidental attention. When families are not prepared to take up the slack, emotional growth may be impeded, resulting in dimished social skills, industriousness, and ability to cope with stress. This book describes recent changes in public schools and provides parents with guidelines for helping children to thrive.
