This book focuses on the relationship that schools have with parents and carers, especially in the early stages of behavioral difficulty. It aims to promote the best possible partnership with parents in what is often a sensitive and emotionally fraught situation. It contains an overview of the context and a general theoretical framework for home school interactions on behavior; research findings on factors which facilitate or inhibit effective partnerships, helping teachers understand why some parents/carers are reluctant to become involved or may appear aggressive and suggests ways in which schools might usefully respond; and chapters written by contributors with specific expertise in working with parents who have harmed their children, the carers of children in foster families and residential homes, mobile families (including travelers and asylum seekers), and families from diverse communities. The book is intended primarily for teachers and school managers at every phase of education, but will also be of interest to educational psychologists, home-school liaison officers, support staff, counselors, mentors, LEA officers and anyone working in parent partnership schemes.

How can we create effective partnerships between home, school and the community? How can the relationships and communication between families and school be strengthened? How can families help schools to improve behaviour in their children, both at home and at school? Using a tried and tested framework that has been successfully implemented throughout a wide variety of very different schools and settings, 'Family Values' is a Scheme which engages and empowers families to work in close collaboration with schools and organisations, and which results in long-term improvements in behaviour, communication, pupil achievement and relationships. The 'Family Values' Scheme has been proven to: Help pupils to be more academically diligent Help schools to assume a calmer, more peaceful ambience Forge better pupil-teacher relationships Improve Pupil and teacher wellbeing Help parents to be more engaged with the school Improve children's literacy, behaviour and attendance Provide head teachers and their staff with an effective whole-school strategy. The authors' award-winning 'Family Values' Scheme is underpinned by sound theoretical principles, and they show here how it has been successfully put into practice through case studies in real school settings. The book explores how the Scheme promotes social, emotional and family system theories, and, in linking effectively to SEAL (social and emotional aspects of learning), the Scheme compliments existing personal and social education programmes in all schools. Showing schools and organisations how to create effective partnerships with families and the community in a fun, exciting and sustainable way, Better Behaviour through Home-School Relations will be of huge benefit to all school staff, as well as local authorities, support groups, parents, charities and services.

"The 2006 Families and Children Study (FACS) is the eighth in a series of annual surveys to investigate the circumstances of British families with dependent children. The study began in 1999 with a survey of all lone parent families and low/moderate-income couples. In 2001 the third annual study was enlarged to be representative of all families with dependent children. This report presents statistics based on a representative snapshot of the circumstances of all families with dependent children in 2006. The report is divided into two parts. Chapters 2 to 10 look at a distinct feature of family life. Some of the chapters focus on the circumstances of the family unit - such as housing, income and material well being - some on the circumstances of the adults in the family (the 'mother figure' mainly but also her partner if relevant) - such as work and health. Chapters 11 to 16 look at a distinct feature of children's lives - such as health and schooling, childcare, child maintenance and some on the circumstances of the children in the family."--P. 7.

A detailed examination of the ways in which teachers and educational psychologists are responding to the challenge of asserting discipline in schools, this book presents the results of a national survey of educational psychologists detailing 68 interventions with difficult pupils. It summarizes the aspects most associated with successful outcomes, and then examines the results of in-depth interviews with 24 teachers who have worked successfully with educational psychologists in overcoming the problems presented to them by a difficult pupil. The many cases the teacher describes the pupil as the most difficult they have ever encountered, and yet they have achieved considerable and even dramatically unexpected improvements.

This book describes the skills teachers will need for productive collaboration with their students' parents. It employs a solution-focused approach which honors the diversity of families, respects the expertise of both parents and teachers, and promotes authentic communication between them. Teacher-Parent Collaboration looks at specific challenges that arise in schools and early childhood settings. The book outlines how teachers can respond to the needs of parents whose sons or daughters have disabilities or chronic illness, are gifted learners, are displaying disruptive or aggressive behavior (including bullying) at school, or whose families are enduring adversity, child neglect, or abuse. It describes how teachers can collaborate with parents to resolve these challenges to improve the children's functioning and achievement throughout their education years.

Are there ways to intervene early in a child's life that might reduce, at a reasonable cost, the probability of his becoming a serious delinquent? The results of some small-scale social experiments have been published suggesting that certain kinds of preschool education and parent training might have desirable and lasting effects. In addition, there is growing evidence that some kinds of medical intervention and certain forms of school organization and ethos could help reduce the rate of misconduct. The authors provide a full-scale assessment of the evidence that might lead to the design of new research and action efforts.
