Publisher Description

Middle School Makeover is a guide for parents and educators to help the tweens in their lives navigate the socially fraught hallways, gyms, and cafeterias of middle school. This audiobook helps parents, teachers, and other adults in middle school settings to understand the social dilemmas and other issues that kids today face. Author Michelle Icard covers a large range of topics, beginning with helping us understand what is happening in the brains of tweens and how these neurological developments affect decision-making and questions around identity. She also addresses social media, dating, and peer exclusion. Using both recent research and her personal, extensive experience working with middle-school-aged kids and their parents, Icard offers listeners concrete and practical advice for guiding children through this chaotic developmental stage while also building their confidence.

About the Author

Michelle Icard launched Athena’s Path, a curriculum that helps girls navigate the tricky middle school social scene in 2004. Shortly after, she added Hero’s Pursuit for boys, and in 2011 launched her website about how to parent middle school children. Athena’s Path and Hero’s Pursuit have been implemented in thirty schools, in five states, and have impacted over ten thousand students. Michelle is often a guest speaker at schools and parenting events, and she hosts Right in the Middle, a conference for girls headed to middle school and their moms. Michelle also runs Moms Meet Up, a parent conversation and support group for parents of middle school children, and provides private coaching for parents and teens. Michelle has written curriculum for other national programs for adolescents, including Girlology and Girls Rock the House. In addition to her own blog, Michelle writes for Your Teen Magazine, The Karina Chronicles, and Charlotte Smarty Pants. She is the mother of a thirteen-year-old daughter and an eleven-year-old son.
