9780824524241: How's My Kid Doing?: Practical Answers to Questions Every Parent Asks About Their Kid's Education

Parents’ most pressing and worrisome questions about their children’s elementary school experience are addressed in this helpful resource. The explosion of education options and the emphasis on parental involvement often confuse or intimidate parents, prompting such questions as How can I know what’s going on in school if my child won't tell me? Do video games interfere with my kid’s ability to learn? What is school choice? Does "No Child Left Behind" make classrooms better? Is it okay to bribe my son to motivate him to do his homework? Explained in a simple and reassuring manner, apprehensive and concerned parents are advised to go easy on interrogation and to ask pointed questions about particulars: What was the worst thing about school today? may be a better conversation starter than How was school today? Topics range from curriculum and classroom concerns and homework and discipline questions, to social and moral issues. Insight is proffered into what motivates teachers, and suggestions for forging effective parent-teacher partnerships are included. This compilation of practical advice is grounded in years of classroom and administrative experience and extensive research.

"[Frome's] book unlocks the secrets to the successful relationships between family and school which we all know are at the heart of improving student achievement."  William N. Moseley, headmaster, The Ensworth School, Nashville, Tennessee



"Dr. Frome delivers a unique perspective for parents to guide them on their most challenging journey raising their children. . . . The book is thoughtful, inspirational, educational, honest and authentic."  Trudy Mollenberg, past chairman, Success by Six, and winner, Champion of Children Award, New York State National Association of the Education of Young Children

"I used to wish for a parenting manual; I now have a 'how-to' manual for education."  Brigid Doherty, executive director, The Women's Fund



"[Dr. Frome] tackles the hard questions with clarity and confidence, and his fresh approach is marked by his trademark optimism and practicality."  Lee Coffin, dean of undergraduate admissions, Tufts University

Keith Frome, author of How’s My Kid Doing? has worked with high school students across the country and believes he has found the key to encouraging them to consider college: peer pressure. Frome offers his unique take on the college application process." —Judy Woodruff, pbs.org
