Summary This project is designed to be utilized by high school counselors to provide parents with information on the importance of being involved during their child's middle to high school transition. There are new reasons why children are choosing to drop out or experience a lack of success in high school. This workshop will be used to address the high ninth grade dropout rate by educating parents on the social and technological changes and pressures their child will be dealing with at the high school level. It will also teach them the tools they need to properly address the challenges their child may face in high school. This project will contribute to the field of school counseling by providing a one-day, two-part workshop that high school counselors can utilize to increase the success of the students at the high school level. Ideally, this workshop will result in more parents becoming aware of the challenges their teenagers will face in high school and learning strategies to help them prepare for, and overcome, such issues.
