From the Publisher...

Put your child back on the path to success

Two leading psychologists give you individualized, practical solutions tailored for: COASTERS: the ultimate procrastinators, usually described as easy-going and unmotivated, the most common type of underachiever

ANXIOUS UNDERACHIEVERS: want to do better but are too tense and uptight to work effectively

IDENTITY-SEARCHERS: so wrapped up in figuring out who they are that they become distracted from schoolwork

WHEELER-DEALERS: impulsive and manipulative, so intent on instant gratification that they see no point in doing well in school

SAD UNDERACHIEVERS: their depressed mood and low self-esteem rob them of the energy they need for schoolwork

DEFIANT UNDERACHIEVERS: they underachieve as an act of rebellion "A groundbreaking new approach to helping children work up to their potential."-- River North News

"An eminently valuable resource for anyone confronted with the challenge of getting the best out of children and adolescents. It will be the book for this problem for a long time." --Anthony Moriarty, Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist, Principal, Homewood Flossmoor Community High School, Illinois
