The book to be discussed is: Middle School Matters: The 10 Key Skills Kids Need to Thrive in Middle School and Beyond and How Parents Can Help by Phyllis L. Fagell
Both children and parents often face challenges in this age period. This book provides an important resource in helping parents prepare and manage this transition period.
“This book tops them all with practical communication tools, realistic expectations, and eye-opening truths about the age group and what they are seeing and experiencing in middle school. Just reading the book helped me see cues I’d never noticed as openings to communicate with my own children who are both middle school students. I love this book!” Amazon reviewer
Parents of children of all ages are welcome to learn about this age period and prepare or provide anecdotes of their experiences with the age period. The discussion is led by Dr. Jane Brooks, a child and family psychologist and author of the college textbook, The Process of Parenting.
This is a free event and open to all interested participants.
