here are two universally known truths:
1. Smart kids work well.
2. You can't change people.

The first one is incorrect. It isn't the smart kids who work well, it is the kids who work well who are smart. Intelligence and diligence are not quantities fixed at birth. They can both be very considerably enhanced.

The second one is right; you can't change people. But what you can do is change the environment and the systems that sustain the environment. You then allow people to exist in a different, more supportive environment and help them to adapt and change themselves.

This book tells parents how they can create the perfect environment to help their teenagers to flourish at school. It covers every aspect of their teenager's schooling; from choosing a suitable school, to communicating with teachers, through to dealing with the trauma of homework.
