The estrangement of parents has created a crisis that adversely affects the performance of American students and the relationship of families to schools and school teachers. This book says,“Enough Iz Enough!”

It shows how teachersand parents can and should unify to bring about change to fulfill the mission of public schools.

This book describes how the relationship of parents and families with teachers and schools can support a critical need to improve student achievement. It suggests ways for a school to adapt instructional protocol to meet common core testing standards, without changing current course content and teaching methods. Strategies are given to help ensure that students will see school as a fun and enjoyable learning experience. This is particularly important in the early grades.

Enough Iz Enough makes it clear that teachers and parents must work together to create partnerships that support student achievement. The book admirably challenges current assumptions, methods, and expectations for parent-teacher relationships and offers ways to improve these relationships. Its pretext 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.
All must come together.

In this book, learn how to change parent-teacher relationships by:

  • Utilizing “persistence”to engage families with teachers.
  • Embracing strategies that teachers can use to engage parents.
  • Offering ways to form parent-teacher partnerships that improve student performance.
  • Showing parents to encourage and prepare their child to do well in school.
  • Suggesting strategies for principals to encourage teacher’s persistenceandretain teachers.

Unless we work to strengthen the family, to create conditions under which most parents will stay together, all the rest—schools, playgrounds, public assistance, and private concerns—will not be enough to cut completely the circle of despairand deprivation.

The family has always been the cornerstone of American society. Our families nurture, preserve, and pass on to each succeeding generation the values we share and cherish, values that are the foundation of our freedoms.

“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.”
