A commonsense book that helps parents help their children get the most out of learning and school by indicating what should be happening at given levels of the child's education.
FROM CHAPTER ONE:
"And so it is clear that the more parents can do to help their children reach full potential in school, the more likely the children are to find fulfillment in the competitive era ahead.
This is a book meant to help parents achieve that goal; it is a blueprint for success. Parents must start early to groom their children for school. By the time a child is three years old, a substantial portion of his or her intelligence has already developed. And by the age of six, according to some experts, the child’s whole future is determined."
In a book that lives up to the promise of its title, a former education writer for the New York Times provides parents with a realistic ``blueprint for success.'' The formidable task of preparing children for school and helping them as students begins early, emphasizes Maeroff, for by the time a child has reached age three, the building blocks of intellectual achievement are substantially in place. Home, then, is the first classroom, parents the first teachers. Important signposts along the road of elementary schooling are observed in this comprehensive guide which helps parents monitor a child's progress through the first six grades. Curriculum, supplementary programs, advocacy for special needs are among the issues addressed. For parents of school-beginners this is an anxiety-reducing tool. First serial to Parenting magazine; author tour.
