Helping Parents and Teens Navigate Middle School and Beyond!

* * * * * * * * * * *

“Like every effective parent, I encourage tweens and teens to know themselves and show themselves... Especially in the face of peer pressure. Only then can young people learn to make choices that reflect who they really are. And isn’t that what we most want for them?”

—Annie Fox, M.Ed.

Yesterday I launched my completely redesigned website! It’s the next level of my work with tweens, teens, parents and educators. Designed by graphic artist extraordinaire Daniel Will-Harris and implemented by my fantastic Webmaster, David Fox. You are warmly invited to:

  • Check out for loads of practical tools and tips, book reviews, radio and TV interviews, Q & A, essays, lesson plans, personal insights and live events to support whatever parenting/teaching challenge you’re facing with your 11-17 year olds.
  • ''Middle School Confidential, Book 1: Be Confident in Who You Are'' by Annie FoxGive the gift of self-confidence... It’s what they really want. “Be Confident in Who You Are” is Book 1 of my new Middle School Confidential™ series. Written for 5th-8th graders, this award-winning fiction/non-fiction hybrid is part-graphic novel and part smart-talk life skills. Order your personally autographed copy of Be Confident in Who You Are for Christmas or Hanukkah. Special Preview... Book 2: “Real Friends vs. The Other Kind” will be published in June. Pre-order your autographed first edition copy for your middle schooler!
