Make Your Child a Success




Everything you can do to help your child succeed

Every parent wants their child to do well at school. But learning doesn't end in the classroom. Stephen Hastings argues that parents can make a real difference and, through a realistic, holistic approach, aims to show parents how to help their children succeed at school.

From study skills and sorting out the 3 Rs, to diet and exercise, plus plenty of tips to keep children motivated, School Smart explains what 21st-century schooling is all about and shows parents how they can support and complement the work that teachers do.

It's not about pushy parenting, but rather how a structured and strategic approach can help children to really fulfil their potential.
