A complete, straightforward guide to the issues and challenges commonly faced by children and young people as they face up to the demands of secondary education – and the practical ways in which parents, carers, teachers and schools can help.
– part of the How to Help, Understand and Support Children and Young People series of books
Published by Pavilion Publishing, Teenage School Difficulties offers a complete introduction to the pitfalls of navigating secondary education while at the same time facing the ordeals of adolescence. When young people are coping with issues at school, whether it be an obvious challenge such as increased workload or a more personal one such as family illness, the playing field becomes less even for them and they can easily lose out with long-term consequences. Furthermore, every individual is different and requires personalised support. Using case studies to share practical advice based on years of first-hand experience managing these issues in real schools, Joyce Nisbet and Jennie Guise explore why it is crucial for everyone involved to pull in the same direction – and how parents, carers, teachers and schools can help.
