The Unmotivated Child: Helping Your Underachiever Become a Successful Student Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Natalie Rathvon solves the mystery of underachievement in children by looking beneath the child's surface behavior. She discloses the beliefs that influence an underachiever's attitude and actions and pinpoints the warning signs to watch for in elementary, middle, and high school students. The Unmotivated Child focuses on the roots of underachievement, the world of the underachiever, and pathways to achievement. By explaining in detail how parents and teachers can help a child live up to his or her potential, Rathvon offers solutions to problems, including guidelines for supporting the students through the change process, including dealing with setbacks, seven strategies for overcoming the "homework trap" - from helping children work effectively at home to making sure they bring their work to school, eight practical techniques for working with teachers to encourage a new approach to learning and school behavior, and five methods for communicating constructively with an underachiever.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [229]-230) and index.
