Starting secondary school : the essential handbook for every Australian family

Carr-Gregg, Michael2020
The jump between primary and secondary school marks one of the biggest transitions in a student's life. It's the point at which a child leaves the relatively safe cocoon of childhood and enters the wide world of adolescence. For both parents and their children, it can be a huge shock, as they encounter a minefield of serious issues to deal with - everything from peer and study pressures to phones, parties and beyond. In this invaluable resource for Australian families, bestselling authors Michael Carr-Gregg and Sharon Witt provide all the tools and information you need for entering this turbulent and testing time. With warmth and wisdom, they offer latest advice on the following: Choosing the right school for you; Settling into secondary school; Homework, study tips and tricks; Coping with stress, anxiety and depression; Social issues such as bullying and friendships; Health and wellbeing, including the importance of sleep and diet; Latest advice on mobile phones and technology; Starting secondary school is a whole lot more complex than it once was, but this invaluable resource will help your family face this major milestone armed with knowledge and confidence.
