SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Frontsiders, LLC is thrilled to announce the publication of A Parent's Playbook for Learning. The Playbook reveals personality-based tools, techniques and strategies that help parents play to their kids' innate learning strengths.
Study after study highlights the importance of parental involvement in their child's education. In fact, BYU, UCI and NC State's most recent research found that "parental involvement is a more significant factor in a child's academic performance than the qualities of the school itself." (October 2012) Research like this reinforces that parents can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines when it comes to educating their children. Amassed from nearly 100 reference texts, the Parent's Playbook for Learning shows parents exactly how to support and encourage a child's education in the ways that are best for him or her.
Says author Jen Lilienstein, "As parents, we have all been there. Once our wee ones emerged from the womb, we started devouring books and websites that would tell us whether co-sleeping, the No Cry Sleep Solution or Ferber-izing our baby would be best. As they grew, we started to understand that their personalities played a big part in what parenting approaches would be most effective for them. Personality type plays a huge role in what careers appeal to us, who we select as our friends, and which partner with whom we choose to spend our lives. But, we often forget that personality type also matters in learning. Just as we naturally approach problems differently as adults, kids also look at problems and concepts differently."
Ms. Lilienstein's new book examines at how to best approach everything from getting organized and time management to homework practice, test prep, approaching new concepts, enrichment activities, group learning, motivation, and handling failures based on the child's personality type. A Parent's Playbook for Learning is available on Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, Kobo, Smashwords, and at bookstores nationwide.
