Many of today's middle school children confront important topics like alcohol, drugs, sexuality and technology at such an early age that would have been hard to imagine a decade ago. It's typical for parents to worry about these important years. The author considers this time to be full of constructive changes as your children become more independent, and your role shifts from being a parent to manager, and then to encouraging coach. Appropriate subjects include cyberbullying and how to choose practical and worthwhile activities. These years can and should be a time of exciting change and opportunity, and this book gives you what you need to know to survive and grow as a family.
