When your son sits down to do his work, encourage him to do as much of it as he can on his own. Jerome Schultz, Ph.D., a clinical neuropsychologist from Harvard Medical School and the author of "Nowhere to Hide: Why Kids with ADHD and LD Hate School and What We Can Do About It," says that when a teen is complaining his work is too hard, "a parent should say, 'Pick three to five of these that you think you may need my help with.'" Encourage him to try and do the rest on his own so he can learn how to teach himself important concepts and tolerate frustration.
The two hope to pass on the hobby to the future generations,including Jerome Schultz's daughter Meeghan, 7, who was helping roll up firehoses as the storm began to roll in.
Born on May 7, 1946, Jerry Schultz, who was one of five kids, grew up on Catalpa Drive. Probably because of overcrowding at Jefferson, his kindergarten year was spent at a church close by to Ulrich's Drug Store. Jerry fondly remembers Jefferson Elementary School as being tons of fun. With his favorite subject being Art, Jerry tells about being in love with his Art Teacher, Letitia (Wehner?) (He always thought of her as Letitia, so he forgot her last name.) He was crushed when she got engaged to the Science Teacher. Jerry said all the kids were invited to her wedding and he remembers throwing rice. VERY HARD!
