Resistant learner

Addressing the emotional and academic needs of kids between the ages 9 - 14 Lawrence Greene examines the behaviors and attitudes that undermine academic performance, diminish self-esteem and limit educational and career options. Each chapter focuses on a particular deficit area and offers accessible, hands-on methods for parents to guide and mentor their struggling child.

Parents learn how to:

Help their child identify natural talents and use them when learning. 

Choose a democratic or autocratic approach to modifying behavior. 

Open an effective dialogue with their child.

Express positive expectations and affirm and praise effort.
