Helping Your Child Become Successful in School
A Guide for Parents
by Bruce Johnson
You are your child’s first teacher, and your challenge is to help your child become successful in school. Does this mean you need to present daily lessons? No. This merely means you need to take an active part in helping your child with the education process and related activities. “Helping Your Child Become Successful in School: A Guide for Parents” is full of suggestions and offerings on how to do just that, as well as how to have fun while doing that.
Presentation starts with what educators want parents to know. It continues with reading, writing, math, technology, and homework helps. Also included are helpful hints for getting involved in the school education process as well as activities for learning around the home, games to play, and summer activities.
You may be surprised at how much a simple daily effort will pay off. Someday your child will start to blossom, and better yet, someday your child will pass along these activities to your grandchildren. That will be doubly rewarding and fun to watch.
