Discipline in schools is often a product of the estrangement of parents on the outside. Accordingly, this needs to be addressed by adding the family and parents of students to the strategies that every school can use to improve classroom decorum and student achievement. Enough Iz Enough! outlines how teachers and parents can unify to fundamentally change and fulfill the mission of educating our youth.

Enough Iz Enough encourages the relationship of parents and families with teachers and schools that can support the work of teachers and improve student performance. The book provides proven methods for teachers to adapt instructional protocol. Strategies are proposed to help families ensure that children see school as an enjoyable learning experience, especially in the early grades. Enough Iz Enough makes it clear that if teachers and parents work together to create partnerships, they will lend remarkable support for students to achieve. The book admirably poses assumptions, methods, and expectations to nurture parent-teacher relationships for the improvement of discipline and learning. The pretext for this book is:

The love of parents can be second to none
They will help teachers get the job done.
It may be tough, it may be rough.
They must come together.

  • Providing a durable framework of successful strategies to engage families in education.

“A positive, collaborative relationship between parents and teachers is essential for the wellness and healthy growth of children into adults. Dr. LaSonya and John puts forward compelling argument in support of such collaborative partnership. Sighting the challenges some parents face in earning their lively hood and participating in their child’s education at the same time, he puts the onus on teachers and schools to find creative ways of engaging parents in the process.”

“Home-school partnerships: It is when you involve parents in their children's education. Sometimes the parents shy away from talking to their sons’ or daughters’ teachers for fear of having to explain the child’s behavior. Parents, stop any animosity towards our educators. Teachers, talk to your students' parents. Parents, talk to your children's teachers. Both of you will learn things that you did not know before. Thanks, Dr. LaSonya and John, for addressing that awkward teacher-parent relationship and promoting unity of our teachers with our parents.”

“One cannot learn everything from school. Lessons outside the classroom and off the school grounds are thought-provoking and empower our children to become confident adults and smarter human beings as well. Upon reading this book, I now understand why and how schools can take the lead in properly educating our youth.”

“Children should be brought up using the “whole family approach”. I was once a confused child, my mother was such a strict parent and my dad showered me with nice things only. They could not seem to agree on why I should be rewarded or sanctioned, the same way that parents and teachers often disagree about rewards and sanctions. Upon reading this book, I now know why most children grow up to be as confused. A “give and take” for agreement and cooperation between parents and teachers is what’s needed. Two thumbs up, Dr. LaSonya and John, for teaching us to overcome this and learn the “whole family approach.”

“As parents, it is completely normal to deal with each of we may be dealing with our children differently. Don’t feel guilty. To be effective parents, we must understand that our children have different personalities. We should treat them differently yet equally well so we may do what’s best to help each one grow and succeed.”
