This is a great handbook for parents who are interested in shaping their kids into well-rounded, well-grounded young adults instead of just surviving the teen years and pushing their kids off to college. Which, hopefully, is most parents. I appreciated that Chediak actually started with building the character and faith of teens before anything academic, making this focus of this on building up and truly preparing students throughout high school. Every student will have unique experiences and face different challenges throughout his/her educational career, so the more we can do to give them the tools they need to thrive, the better off they are. If I have one criticism, it’s that it’s long and could feel overwhelming, but the way he has it broken down into separate “conversations” with key points and the end of each makes it more user friendly for parents who might not have time to sit down and do a complete page by page read-through.
