520    "Middle school is its own important, distinct territory, 
       and yet it's either written off as an uncomfortable rite 
       of passage or lumped in with other developmental phases. 
       Based on her many years working in schools, professional 
       counselor Phyllis Fagell sees these years instead as a 
       critical stage that parents can't afford to ignore (and 
       though "middle school" includes different grades in 
       various regions, Fagell maintains that the ages make more 
       of a difference than the setting). Though the transition 
       from childhood to adolescence can be tough for kids, this 
       time of rapid physical, intellectual, moral, social, and 
       emotional change is a unique opportunity to proactively 
       build character and confidence. Fagell helps parents use 
       the middle school years as a low-stakes training ground to
       teach kids the key skills they'll need to thrive now and 
       in the future, including making good friend choices, 
       negotiating conflict, regulating their own emotions, be 
       their own advocates, and more. To answer parents' most 
       common questions and struggles with middle school-aged 
       children, Fagell combines her professional and personal 
       expertise with stories and advice from prominent 
       psychologists, doctors, parents, educators, school 
       professionals, and middle schoolers themselves"--
