A Parent's Guide to helping children succeed in high school



Welcome to the website of Richard Michael Holmes. 

      This website is a work in progress.  It will be updated and upgraded regularly.  If at any time you have a question or two, contact the author directly by e-mailing him at...S636874@aol.com.

      Most of this website pertains to my first book..."For Parents Only:  Straight Talk from Inside the American High School."  However, in recent months I have been posting my progress (or lack of it) on the writing of my second book.  That is on the About Me page. 

      Please feel free to sign my guestbook page.  Thanks!
