Buku ini cukup lama dibaca, selain untuk bahan intervensi tesis, buku ini nyaman pula dibaca untuk memperkaya konsep mengenai underachiver. Bersyukur juga sempat memiliki copy-an dari buku ini.

Dr. Peters bercerita tentang fenomena anak yang meminjam istilah Rimm (1997) menjadi epidemi. Banyak orang tua atau guru yang mengeluhkan anak-anak yang tidak berprestasi di sekolah. Padalah sepertinya ia mampu. Nah, fenomena ini dijelaskan oleh Rimm dan dilanjutkan oleh Dr Peters sebagai underachievement
Read this book with my older daughters but did not apply the principles. Just read it again for the next two children, and will be more diligent this time; lots of good constructive advice about preparing your kids for school.

Helpful for parents who need help establishing structure, boundaries and rules (which includes this single mom). Found the chart system for communication between the school teacher and parents too complex and busy; I reduced it to three sentences based on character formation and time management (my biggest concerns).

The section on learning disabilities did not have anything new in it. Too bad ... thought the author would have had more insight and wisdom on that issue.

It was ok. I couldn't finish it. It kept harping on all the ways parents are failing their kids. I already am very self critical, didn't need the additional criticism.
