For more than forty years and counting, family psychologist and best-selling author John Rosemond has been counseling parents about how to help children do their best in school. This new book draws on all of that knowledge and experience so that parents can set their kids on the path to success in education, even at age three. Dealing with common problems like how much and what kind of help to give with homework, what to do when a child misbehaves in school, and how to deal with academic performance that consistently falls below a child's ability level, Rosemond addresses every issue with time-tested advice and methods. Other books on schoolwork encourage lots of parental involvement. Not this one. Rosemond's approach will help parents disengage from homework and other hassles as they manage their children to even greater success in the classroom. Describing his behavior management strategies that are used by school systems all over the country, he writes with an entertaining, compelling style that will keep parents reading the valuable, helpful information in John Rosemond's Fail-Safe Formula for Helping Your Child Succeed in School, and the book promises to earn high marks for both parents and children.

Since the 1970’s, educators, psychologists and politicians have continually stressed the need to help children actually learn how to learn. This groundbreaking book is the first of its kind to do just that. Aimed at parents who want to start their kids off on the right track, this book is actually a step-by-step course to help you teach your kids how to learn. It’s filled with explanations, exercises, tips, check lists and guidelines to help you at every step in the process. Your kids won’t learn these things in school, because schools aren’t equipped to provide it. Here is your chance to make up for what’s missing in the classroom. You won’t find anything like it anywhere else. THIS BOOK IS GREAT! Sid has written what may be the definitive guide for parents (... and anyone else who works with children). He literally covers it all: how to prepare yourself, the most important things you need to pay attention to when you are working with children to help them succeed... -Joseph Riggio, Ph.D., Cognitive Scientist, author of The State of Perfection The frustration with learning can be greatly alleviated if we apply the principles and processes offered in this book. If you are a parent, teacher or have ever been a young frustrated learner, you will love this book.... -Judith DeLozier, Co-author of NLP II: The Next Generation In a remarkably practical and engaging way, Sid Jacobson offers helpful and unique suggestions for how to help kids to fall in love with ‘learning to learn’. It is clear that Sid is sharing a passion that he has developed for many years. I highly recommend this book! -Stephen Gilligan, Ph.D., Psychologist, author of The Courage To Love

50 Rules Kids Won't Learn in School

Real-World Antidotes to Feel-Good Education

Author: Charles J. Sykes

Publisher: St. Martin's Press

ISBN: 1466831278

Category: Family & Relationships

Page: 192

View: 597

Charles J. Sykes offers fifty life lessons not included in the self-esteem-laden, reality-light curriculum of most schools. Here are truths about what kids will encounter in the world post-schooling, and ideas for how parents can reclaim lost ground---not with pep talks and touchy-feely negotiations, but with honesty and respect. Sykes's rules are frank, funny, and tough minded, including: #1 Life is not fair. Get used to it. #7 If you think your teacher is tough, wait until you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure, so he tends to be a bit edgier. When you screw up, he's not going to ask you how you FEEL about it. #15 Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. They called it "opportunity." #42 Change the oil. #43 Don't let the success of others depress you. #48 Tell yourself the story of your life. Have a point. Each rule is explored with wise, pithy examples that parents, grandparents, and teachers can use to help children help themselves succeed---in school and out of it. A few rules kids won't learn in school: #9 Your school may have done away with winners and losers. Life hasn't. #14 Looking like a slut does not empower you. #29 Learn to deal with hypocrisy. #32 Television is not real life. #38 Look people in the eye when you meet them. #47 You are not perfect, and you don't have to be. #50 Enjoy this while you can.
