PDF Getting Along at School
This article relates to creating relationships at school. All grade school newcomers face these adjustments to being on their own. They develop new ways to fit in, get their measure of attention, and deal with a new school, new friends and sometimes new enemies. But many need to be taught the strategies of making friends, cooperating in a class, and working out problems with classmates.

PDF Grumps, Fits and Tantrums
Editors note: This is the first in a series of three about emotional outbursts. When a child who regularly throws tantrums makes a request, parents need to be careful. As every parent knows, the decision to deny the request should not be altered by a tantrum, but often a less clear reaction gets parents into hotter water.

PDF Helping with School Skills
This article focuses on the importance of school and how to keep your children motivated and successful.Adults looking back on their childhood realize that school success was a critical ingredient of day-to-day happiness. If you can help your child/teen in this important part of his or her life, what a gift it is! School is such a large part of a teen's life that if it isn't going well, it clouds almost all other activities.

PDF Magical Thinking
Today many students believe they might make it even to enormous financial success just by luck, or by skill in sports, or by knowing the right people. It's a possibility promoted by contests on TV and in the news. So without incentives to focus attention on the learning at hand, many students become victims of magical thinking about success, and they develop unrealistic views of how luck will carry them through.
