The Years of Anxiety: A Handbook for Parents of Junior High School Children.
Smith, David L.; And Others
This handbook was written to assist parents in developing greater understanding of early adolescence and the function of the junior high school in relation to their child. It assumes that during the transitional stage from pre-adolescence to adolescence young people need a special situation in a particular setting to provide for their specific needs. The handbook points out the importance of the junior high school as an educational level attainable by virtually all students which is designed to allow broad exploration into academic, vocational, and avocational areas and to acquaint students with the vast educational possibilities available. Prepared by the junior high school guidance department, the handbook examines the operational structure of the school, the general curriculum, pupil personnel services available, extra-co-curricular activities, report cards, homework, close parent-student-school communication, and conferences with teachers and counselors.
