Authors: Wilde, Jerry 
Book Description:
Knowing how to deal with difficult parents is essential if one plans on having a career in education. Difficult parents can be broken down into two subtypes and this book examines the similarities, differences and motivations of each in turn. There is also an analysis of special education and Section 504 laws, as well as a general overview of the federal laws. Techniques for dealing with parent advocates are also examined. The components of successful parent conferences are discussed along with an analysis of parental ownership. What should be the school's responsibility and what should stay with the parents? That's a very important question and often it isn't given enough attention. A hazard in this profession, job burnout, is also covered. The physical, emotional, and psychological warning signs are discussed along with measures that can be taken to prevent burnout. Finally, techniques to understand and cope with anger and anxiety are provided.
