The authors, two teachers who are also mothers, share ways to establish positive parent-teacher relationships and provide an insider's understanding of how schools actually work. Here is outstanding practical advice that parents need to help their child thrive in school.

Tips for parents cover a variety of topics, including:

* Interpreting report cards
* Suggestions for successful parent-teacher interviews
* Addressing conflict
* How to prepare young children to enter school
* Early reading and writing development

Special chapters include information on the different ways children learn, legal and medical matters and special education concerns. There are also fun and educational activity pages for family-oriented activities that support school curriculum topics.

Borowski and Mayne have extensive experience sitting on both sides of the parent-teacher conference table, and they offer valuable insights from both perspectives.
