Abstract : Techniques and activities are discussed which parents can use to help children with educational difficulties. First, an approach is offered for working with parents with their children are having normal, nonpathological reactions to normal, situational stresses. Ideas are then offered for children whose school difficulties are due to acute situational stresses such as divorce or a family death. The paper then focuses on how parents can help children whose difficulties are due to significant developmental immaturity and/or more specific intellectual or motor impairments. Suggestions regarding rules for homework and dealing with school personnel are also made.
