What does a new year mean? New beginnings? Fresh starts?
For me, it's the start of a new school year. Friends have kids starting school for the first time, I have a child starting her first year at secondary school and it is the first year I have two kids in two different schools. Parents are anxious about whether their child is ready, will they cope, will they be bullied, will they make friends, how can they help them?
So, I thought i'd do some digging at starting school books for parents. I found many are written by international authors which can sometimes not be as relevant in the specifics but the ideas and advice can be applicable. And a couple I have already put on hold or on my for later shelf. I thought it was worth sharing in case others were looking for a similar type of book (they are not always straight-forward to find).
