The move from elementary school to middle school can be difficult for boys. Too big to be little yet too little to be big, they face the perfect storm of changing bodies, rushing hormones, and learning challenges. Many new to middle school guys find themselves struggling with grades, behavior, and relationships with family, friends, and teachers. Boys often grow frustrated and embarrassed as they strain to figure out what to do and what not to do in their new world . . . called middle school.
Bestselling author Jonathan Catherman and his two sons (one current and one former middle schooler) offer boys ages ten to twelve the practical help they need to make the move to middle school as painless as possible. The book's 'do this, not that' format covers 100 relevant topics and situations every middle school boy will face like: school lockers, bullies, test taking, cell phone use, homework, gossip, leadership, respect, sports, and many more.
