BECOME YOUR CHILD'S BEST TEACHER LEARN HOW TO BRING LEARNING CLOSER TO CHILDREN MAKE LEARNING A JOYFUL EXPERIENCE REPLACE THE TEDIOUS MEMORIZATION WITH ACTIVE KNOWLEDGE
Because a parental involvement in a childís education and school work is essential in childís development, the "How to Make Learning Games" and "Hooked on Reading" programs were developed to offer parents the essential tools making childrenís study time a joyful experience for both, the child as well as the parent. These programs teach parents effective methods that bring learning closer to children while strengthening primary educational concepts and skills in a format that is stimulating and enjoyable. I believe that enhancing childrenís potential this way will contribute to their well-being, growth, and happiness.
