This innovative book describes how and why even the smallest actions taken by parents can make the world of difference in their children’s schooling and overall education.
Spark Your Child’s Success in Math and Science is a straightforward, research-based resource for parents who want to ignite and sustain their children’s critical-thinking skills and lifelong love of learning. Decades of educational research tell us that a parent’s involvement in a child’s education is the single most important factor in that child’s academic success.
“Being involved” doesn’t require knowledge of math or science, a college education, or any extensive preparation. An involved parent contributes dramatically to a child’s quality of schoolwork, likelihood of graduation, and desire to enroll in higher education. Organized to be accessible and useful, Spark Your Child’s Success in Math and Science is full of immediately usable ideas and background information for all parents.
“...a great resource for all parents who care deeply about their children’s education.”
