We all want our children to reach their fullest potential in life and studies now show that children become more successful when their parents are active learning partners. Head teachers report marked improvements in the attainment and behaviour of the children whose parents get involved in the learning process. Parents First has bags of support and practical advice for schools and parents, offering a head-start in understanding the skills children need to think, planand learn more effectively.
The book contains an accessible range of activities and information designed to investigate topics like effective questioning, new methods of solving problems, and boredom-free study skills. Learning that learning can be fun when using a variety of media and strategies, parents are introduced to the concept of multi-sensory teaching methods that give them practical ways to become the active learning partners their children need.
After encountering Parents First, parents feel able to communicate more effectively with their children, resulting in more meaningful family relationships.
