With only a high school diploma, Veronica found it impossible to find a job let alone one that paid enough for a single parent to raise her family in New York City. Struggling to return to school as an adult, she learned the hard way that an education is essential to getting ahead in life.

As a result, Veronica is determined to give her daughter, Elizabeth, the best education she can afford. With the help of Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF), she is sending Elizabeth to Ascension School on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

Veronica initially chose the school because of its strong curriculum, discipline, and character education. Also, since Elizabeth was shy and an easy target for bullying, Veronica believed she would benefit from the smaller private school setting.

Submitter: I’m weeding the 649s at my public library, and this book still has a Cutter number so that was my first clue that it was old. I also thought the blurb on the back was patronizing and treated children as if they were an alien life form. While skimming the pages inside, I felt like I was reading a book from the set of I Love Lucy . The tone was as condescending to the parents as it was to the children. It almost felt like a guide book aliens wrote after observing life on Earth for a short time….in 1950s movies. It’s still available in Amazon. 1991 edition. And oddly, my library’s copy went out in September 2013. Um..sorry….withdrawn!

Holly: Even the best parenting book ever needs to be updated. I’d expect a new edition if it’s that good. I can’t see much reason to keep a parenting book from the 60s in a public library.

This book was trying too hard. Mom weighing chocolate so the kids get equal portions? I wasn’t even alive in the 60’s and I know they had candy bars.
