Inhaltsangabe: "Throughout his long and varied career as an educator, Steve Schmitz has been told one story, and asked one question, more than any other: ""I know my child is in grade trouble at school, Dr. Schmitz, and it’s making my life hellish at home. I've tried everything, and nothing works. What do I do now?""From three decades as a counselor, Schmitz knows that most parents deeply want to help their children at school. But he knows all too well how powerless most parents feel in turning their lackluster learners around.And he knows, from long experience, how often, and how bitterly, parents clash with their children during ""you've got to do better"" periods.To keep household conflict from escalating, and to show concerned parents how to be part of the solution, Schmitz put down in book form all the successful advice he’s been dispensing for thirty years. In Gradebusters: How Parents Can End the Bad Grades Battle, he shares his practical methods with parents disturbed about their kids' low levels of academic achievement."
