Summary Even the most well-adjusted moms and dads can experience peer pressure and conflicts with other adults. Author Wiseman provides tools to handle difficult situations involving teachers and other parents with grace: how to recognize the archetypal moms and dads--from Caveman Dad to Hovercraft Mom; how and when to step in and step out of your child's conflicts with other children, parents, teachers, or coaches; how to interpret the code phrases other parents use to avoid (or provoke) confrontation; how to have respectful yet honest conversations with other parents when your values are in conflict; how the way you handle parties, risky behavior, and academic performance affects your child. Wiseman offers practical advice and useful scripts to help you navigate difficult but necessary conversations, and offers the tools to become wiser, more relaxed parents--and the inspiration to set the kind of example that will make a real difference in our children's lives.--From publisher description.
