Book of the Month

Posted on February 9th, 2012 by

Each month we’ll be featuring a book or resource that you might be interested in checking out. We have not personally read all of the books so cannot provide a guarantee of quality – but if they look interesting to you, feel free to check them out and leave a comment for others!

This month’s feature is Don’t Tell Me What to Do, Just Send Money by Helen E. Johnson & Christine Schelhas-Miller. From, “This completely revised and updated edition… prepares parents for the issues that they will encounter during their children’s college years. Since our original publication over ten years ago, there has been a dramatic increase in the use of cell phone and internet technology. The birth of the term ‘helicopter parent’ is, in part, due to the instant and frequent connectivity that parents have with their children today. Parents are struggling with the appropriate use of communicative technology and aren’t aware of its impact on their child’s development, both personally and academically.

With straightforward practicality and using humorous and helpful case examples and dialogues, Don’t Tell Me What To Do, Just Send Money helps parents lay the groundwork for a new kind of relationship so that they can help their child more effectively handle everything they’ll encounter during their college years.”
