Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads: Coping with the Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Rule--or Ruin --Your Child's Life by Elizabeth Rapoport (2006)

Want to be transported back to your high school (or maybe middle school) days, of cool kids, sidekicks, outcasts, outsiders, the strongly kept social hierarchy of every "respectable" educational institution? Counselor Rapoport notes, that parents helping their offsprings are also creating similar social cliques themselves, and the existence of those cliques might have a strong (and usually negative) effect on the education of your child. Starting from this description, the author offers simplistic, one shoe fits all approaches to many problems facing children and adolescents (and their parents). The simple mindedness of approaches taken/offered might reflect the skill levels and approaches of many school counselor.
