Description - Starting Secondary School by Michael Carr-Gregg
A parenting guide that deals with one of the most significant transition periods of a child's life - starting secondary school.
'We want to give you and your child the best opportunity to thrive in secondary school. By the end of this book you're going to feel a whole lot more capable of dealing with what Year 7 throws at you.'
The jump between primary and secondary school marks one of the biggest transitions in a student's life. It's the point at which a child leaves the relatively safe cocoon of childhood and enters the wide world of adolescence. For both parents and their children, it can be a huge shock, as they encounter a minefield of serious issues to deal with - everything from peer and study pressures to phones, parties and beyond.
In this invaluable resource for Australian families, bestselling authors Michael Carr-Gregg and Sharon Witt provide all the tools and information you need for entering this turbulent and testing time. With warmth and wisdom, they offer latest advice on the following-
Choosing the right school for you
Settling into secondary school
Homework, study tips and tricks
Coping with stress, anxiety and depression
Social issues such as bullying and friendships
Health and wellbeing, including the importance of sleep and diet
Latest advice on mobile phones and technology
Starting secondary school is a whole lot more complex than it once was, but this invaluable resource will help your family face this major milestone armed with knowledge and confidence.
