The Unmotivated Child

Helping Your Underachiever Become a Successful Student

The Unmotivated Child offers parents, kids, and teachers fast answers and solid solutions.

A guide for parents of underachieving youngsters presents five methods for communicating constructively, seven strategies for overcoming the "homework trap," seven techniques for working with teachers, and guidelines for supporting the student through the change process. Natalie Rathvon solves the mystery of underachievement in children by looking beneath the child’s surface behavior. She discloses the beliefs that influence an underachiever’s attitude and actions and pinpoints the warning signs to watch out for in elementary, middle, and high school students.
