The Mom Book Goes to School: Insider Tips to Ensure Your Child Thrives in Elementary and Middle School
by Stacy M. DeBroff
400 pages Free Press June 2005 Paperback    

You donít have to be a mom to benefit from The Mom Book Goes To School, a totally comprehensive guide to working with your child, teachers and family to make school a positive experience. In fact, every dad should read this book, too, because each page is packed with information that empowers parents to be proactive about their kidsí experiences in elementary and middle school.

Written by Stacy DeBroff, author of The Mom Book, this time around the focus is on the variety of issues that spring up when a child is in those early school years. With a child of my own about to start kindergarten, I find this book to be priceless. Each chapter has so much to say about what I can do as a parent to help my child, and I wonít hesitate to recommend this to anyone with kids.

Chapters cover everything from starting school for the first time, dealing with difficult teachers, bullying, bad grades, cheating, helping in the classroom, handling disputes with teachers, dealing with issues surrounding children with learning or other disabilities (this chapter alone helped me plan my own sonís IEP meetings), and of course all of the issues that plague middle school parents, like helping with homework and mastering those standardized tests. The information is presented in a lively tone, with plenty of anecdotes and quotes from real moms and teachers offering hands-on advice and experience.

This book is a treasure and a must-read for moms and dads alike. The early school years set the stage for so much of a childís view of his or her future, and this book is filled with tools, tips and techniques for making that view one of possibility and excitement.
